#327992 Rotational Angling: would it work?

Posted by Knuguy on 05 November 2015 - 08:34 PM

The system works great on popular pools on salmon rivers in eastern Canada. 



Not a very useful comparison. I have salmon fished in Nfld and you'd never get away with a fraction of the crap that happens on Ont rivers. Those fisheremen(...err fisherpeople)  are very protective of a scarce resource.

#315241 Salmon for the table

Posted by Knuguy on 07 September 2014 - 11:28 AM

2 separate and quite unrelated issues are being discussed here: (1) colour of meat (2)contaminants.


Re colour----any whitish speck or brown that I've tasted has had a watery texture, not firm like normal orange/pink. To me the taste was quite inferior.


Some of you are not comparing proverbial apples and apples. Chinooks look and taste very different from Atlantic salmon. In most all cases it's Atlantic you will see for sale in the stores(Even in Port Alberni BC which proclaims itself to be the salmon capital of the world---but I digress). If you have ever tasted wild Atlantic you'll know how much better it tastes than the farmed stuff. One is muscular like an elite athlete, used to swimming upstream and jumping rapids. The others are couch potatoes.

#312901 ***Early August Salmon Run Confirmed***

Posted by Knuguy on 30 July 2014 - 12:06 PM

I would wait until september before worrying about salmon in the rivers.  mid August pier fishing will start,  september the runs will start.  its not going to be a full month ahead of schedule, usually differs by a week or so.


Anyways, Ill  be carping untill october when the real chromers fire up.  boots, silver or black still arent all that great of a fish to catch unless your downrigging on a boat in the summer.  Ill just wait til october and grab up on some already dead carcasses to fertilze my garden, other than that, Ill leave the chinnies to the loogans.   my 2 cents

Yep!! The more people who think that way, the better I like it!! :razz:

#310054 So How Many Of You Smoke While Fishing???

Posted by Knuguy on 12 June 2014 - 01:20 PM

Since you're so worried about pollution from a cigarette, I assuming you ride your bike to your favourite fishing holes?


Best to avoid eating chili the night before as well!! :lol:  :roll:

#294473 2nd Annual OFF Outing -- NEW DATE NOV 8-10!

Posted by Knuguy on 14 November 2013 - 07:36 PM

I’d like to thank NADO for organizing the event this year, for taking over when CC bowed out. Thanks also to FH Mike for his free sample floats and tips. I caught a bow shortly after he gave me those. As the token old geezer I didn’t feel out of place. I quite enjoyed it. As someone already said, meeting new people and putting faces to names are the main things. For me, as a relative newcomer to this obsession called steelheading, getting some tips for the pros and watching others’ technique was great.


I can understand folks dropping out because of work or other commitments but for the weather?? Really? Wimping out for a few clouds and a breeze??? Sounds pretty lame!

#292380 Every little bit helps. W.I.T.O.-walk in trash out

Posted by Knuguy on 27 October 2013 - 03:08 PM

 I don't understand how one can call themselves an outdoorsman if you leave garbage behind, gives all anglers a bad name


No kidding. My outdoorsey, but non-fishing friends blame any thrash they see on fishermen. Trying to explain to them that it's just a small, but lazy,  minority is to blame doesn't always convince them. what gets me is the empty cans---do they get some much heavier when empty that they can't be carried out.

I guess I have my prejudices too. If I see a Japanese guy on the river I automatically assume he knows his stuff!! :razz:

I watched it on the web and there was a space at the bottom to add comments. If you haven't done so already I'm sure you will! Go for it!! Maybe others on here can do the same.
