Only I was off Vancouver Island.

We had a guy in Asuncion recently dragged off by a yellowtail while skin diving never to return. The mighty fish after being speared swam circles around him and tightened the line making it impossible to swim to the surface. His mistake was using wire line in his speargun. They found the his knife next to him, a knife he had been using to try to cut the line but could not.

Sorry, I know this isn't a thrilling story, but it is about a towing fish.

Anyone can catch fish in a boat but only \"El Pescador Grande\" can get them from the beach.

I hope when my time comes the old man will let me bring my rod and the water will be warm and clear.

I have wanted to fish the St Joe for years and finally did it last year. As far as I could tell the catch-and-release regulations are recent. Too many guys were keeping their fish. The fish on the SJ were smaller than Coeur DeLane even though there are far more people on that river. I figured it was due to the regs. I couldn't believe how long the SJ was. We drove a good 45 miles from the mouth before starting and worked up stream. We could've driven another 45 miles and still been in good water. Beautiful country.

Technically, a dolly varden is an arctic char in fresh water, but that is a fine trout-like trophy!



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Dolly Varden: Beautiful and Misunderstood, Alaska ...www.adfg.alaska.gov › ...
At that time the world record Dolly Varden (32 pounds) from Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho became a record “bull trout”. Misidentification has not been limited to the ...
And yes they were called Bull trout and Char, checking and found the Alaska version was 27# after checking they never even mentioned that we had them in the States Humm !:)
