Definitely some better spots around that are much easier to fish, but ya. Right now everything is pretty amazonian

You can fish from the dam down to the abutments until dec 31.  But not until 30 min before sunrise and until 30 min after sunset, during the month of october


From the abutments down is considered zone 13 and is open all year, night fishing is ok

#317374 The Ultimate Photo Thread

Posted by tcp on 04 October 2014 - 06:36 PM

I think with recent technology, with few good HD pictures and measurements, they can replicate the same fish. Personally I am against keeping alpha gene pool.

You most definitely can have a taxidermist mount a fish with just pictures and measurements. No need to kill

#315294 How to float fish technical water?

Posted by tcp on 08 September 2014 - 08:50 AM

Ir4j has the tips. Gotta put the brakes on. Takes a bunch of luck. Personally I love fishing logjam and snaggy stuff. Adds to the challenge. With salmon it's a bit tough if the logjam happens to be downstream. The shear weight of those fish will prevent you from stopping them and your line may snap. If possible, position yourself downstream of the logjam, you may have better luck

#314283 ***Early August Salmon Run Confirmed***

Welcome to Looganville. Between FB Twitter and whatever other media I'm too old to care about it seems like people everywhere are becoming attention whores. Is it necessary to photograph and document every fish you catch then let the world know? does this enhance the moment?

I take pics of my catches so I can post em up and make people like you jelly!!! Hahahah.

#312944 New Carping Video

Posted by tcp on 31 July 2014 - 12:26 AM

Great video!



That makes me really want to get into carp on the fly! They look so strong!
Do you find that for carp you need to have pin point accuracy though? As in, drop the fly a little ways away and they won't bother coming to it?

accuracy needs to be pretty on point.  Carp do not forgive a bad cast, they're very spooky, you have to sneak the fly right in front of them in most cases.   Although, when they are feeding on certain items, like crayfish, they will chase a moving/drifting fly.  This happens more so in the great lakes, but ive had them chase leeches and hit drifted bugs and corn imitations in rivers as well.

enjoy!   *** pro tip:  go to the youtube site and watch in 1080 on theater or full screen mode.  You can see some fish milling about and you can see the one fish come in and snatch up my fly. Worth watching in HD!!

#312888 rice lake

Posted by tcp on 30 July 2014 - 11:11 AM

I was just there for a week, stayed near alpine.  You can find the walleye in the deeper channels.  Snugged up against bottom close to drop offs.  They like to hide there and pounce on any prey that comes over top of them.


From alpine, you can take a boat for a short ride directly north to the Red buoy that is in the channel and drift from the buoy.  Theres some good structure around that thing.  If you can get ahold of a lake map, it will show where all the other walleye holding areas are.  Alpine should have the maps at their store.


And ya, in Canada, we call them walleye, not pickeral.  ya darn yank

#311718 What kind of knives you got?

Posted by tcp on 11 July 2014 - 02:09 PM

I carry a small folding knife in my pocket every single day, everywhere I go.  I just clip it on my pocket so that the clip shows outward and the knife is in my pocket, guessing that is good enough for non concealment , never had a problem with it.  I find people these days have become real panzies when it comes to knives and guns.  Everyone is so afraid when they see someone carrying a knife or gun, not sure what the big deal is. When our parents were kids, it was acceptable to walk down the street with a rifle over your shoulder.  Nowadays you would be shot on sight by a swat team for something like that, no questions asked, just boom dead.  Weve really become pussies when it comes to this.  People need to just chill the Eff out.


The knife I carry on the daily is a gerber "bear grylls" folder, cheap, good blade, perfect for everyday things, like opening boxes , mail, beers, cutting fishing line,tags off of new clothing, etc, and good enough for cleaning small game or fish when nothing better is available .   Im in the market for some better knives tho. Looking for a nice fixed blade.
