A reply to the Whistler


I,ve been currently working the willow beach area,thats at the upper end of lake Mohave,there,s a fish hatchery there and every fri they dump 2or3 thousand rainbows which in turn brings the stripers,every week or so I hear about a 20#or30# taken,I,m not close to that number but I,m working on it.

Also right below Davis dam I,m sure I,ll get one,there always lots of small fish,right after 9/11 they strung a cable across about a 1/4 mile down from the dam so you can,t get to close,I,m sure those big spawners jam up against the dam.

Haven,t live here for more than two years and have alot to learn about these big boys

Cypress just where do you live in northern Ida.?

I don,t let these fish interfere with my trips down south

Bonners Ferry!


Cypress I lived on lake pend o ray " never could spell that"
right across from Hope,Oden Sunnyside,dad had 180 acres
2000' of water frontage,1946 thru 49,I think of that spot often.
Before moving to az. I had a place on long lake down stream from Spokane and we used to drive up there often just to see what I believe is the most beautiful lake in the world,and I believe still holds the worlds record rainbow
at 37# and dolly varden at 32# not to mention monster lakers.

Baitcast, Lake Pend Oreille(looked the spelling up) is still beautiful. The fish populations are in trouble. The rainbow and lake trout are eating all the kokanee.:no: Last I heard the state was gonna put a bounty of $10 for every rainbow or laker over a certain size. 18"s?:?: That property on the lake is worth a fortune now.:)

Different species??


Well not many, but This is a great thread that gives you a warm feeling that last for a while.
Last April, in Los Barrilies I got to fish at a Rock that produced 18 different species. All were fun and exciting.
Some were ugly as hell, some were weird, some were Stunningly beautiful. If you want to catch to learn, this is the spot. Can't wait for that sauce Corky.

Of course you can. You dive down and stick your hook on a really juicy-looking part of the reef, then wait and pray. :>

Al, did you catch a parrotfish with a hook and line? "Common wisdom" has it that you can't because they don't feed on other swimming fishies, preferring to nibble on the coral reef. I have no personal experience.

--Larry

Oh yes, it was a killed sardine that I was after Pargo. I thought I had a large grouper that would not come off the bottom. Leave it to someone who knows nuthing, to get lucky.
My buddy Steve caught what I guess was a rare Golden grouper, twice the size of the parrot fish. We returned him to the rock.
I guess that was why Javier Cota was excited.

Thanks Frank, I thought my memory was getting worse, I was sure there was a hook on the end of my line.:lol:
Maybe I knocked the sardine off and hooked a juicy piece of corral?:lol::lol: I don't know, sure glad I got lucky. It was um um good. Definitely the hardest fish I ever filleted. Yes the other poster is right "they Stink"

You can nail those parrot fish with a sling. Ever been surrounded by a bunch of 'em munching-out? Can hear their teeth crunching, sounds weird.:yes:

Wow, great stuff... I have caught so many fish in the ocean and that is what is do cool about it. You never really know what you are going to catch out there, especially if you fish light line around rocks, reefs and kelp. Lake wise I totally suck. Catfish, bluegill, trout and mosquito bites. But in the ocean there is nothing like fish 8lb to 12lb and catching fish upto 50lbs, now that's cool. the most memorable a 50+ lb Thrasher caught on 10lb with a fresh water rod, 32lb Yellowfin on 12lb, 35lb, 29lb, 25lb and several in the teens Halibut on 8ln and 10lb test. 65lb Angel Shark on 10lb test and a few decent size calicos, sandies and bonito. That is exciting to me more so than 80lb test on a 200lb bruiser...

Great stuff and nice to see how every one has gone through so many similar experiences.

Have a great one:
