Great Team name Ipop, last year we were yakinbass....changed it up just a bit to better reflect where we all live, so it will be Border City Anglers....May the wars begin!!!  Best of luck to you all.

This is a copy of Oz's FB page...so your team will be merged together once he gets all the entries manually put in......FYI...

ALSO... When registering for a team, please put the team name you would like to join/create.Be sure to tell your teammates to do the same and have the same name listed. Your whole team will then be added and the anglers will be assigned to that team. ALL registrations have to get manually added in the system by me (Oz) and may take 24-48 hours to reflect your status.

Last year it was only $5 for later registration. I assume it would be around the same.
 Crazy how many of us are to cheap to pay and already registered tho. But if you think about it didn't a lot of us get into kayak fishing because we loved to fish but were to cheap to buy a boat( most of us never looking back). Frugal bunch us kayak anglers.

I had the 18' bass boat and sold it all and got into Kayak fishing for peace and quite and a new challenge! I will never look back either, its a great way to fish and spend time with my kids!

As of this morning,site very confusing with entered guys,teams,etc,hopefully site will straighten out shortly.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Homebrew76 on January 19, 2014, 12:47:46 pm
From what I can tell there is just the pair of guys administering the site, not sure if they have help.  Being a software engineer myself, I imagine they can easily order the registrants by region, team name...etc, and from there easily put 90% of the teams together.   The remaining 10% is what will take them 90% of their time.

They will get it going, it will just take a few days.

yep, Canadian Oceans was the first registered...but now it's not showing. I'm sure they will get it all sorted out, they just piled up the work by having the free registration on just one day.

when do you think you will first be able to kayak fish Shooter? we could have been out on the Atlantic on Saturday - beautiful , calm and relatively warm. now it's back to winter, but the kayak is coming back to the water soon. very soon! lol!

I got in on the free day, but donated $10 just the same.   Worth it for a full year of enjoyment competing against both myself, IPop, and the rest of the teams.

If I beat IPop in more than 1 species I'll be damn impressed with myself...  I'm assuming I'm going to kick his ass in sturgeon.  lol

team number wise we are about the same as last, and like last year a team or 2 is lost out there somewhere. this is only the second year for Canada as a separate zone, so we really have no idea if or how many other teams may join.

Homebrew I'll do my best to stay ahead of you but suspect you will top me in yellow perch and catfish (mayyyyybe sturgeon if I decide to concentrate on the big Atlantics...or even if I don't - lol!. )

Welcome to the team Chris!!!

Oz must have thought they were european vikings with that name.

Still seems to be a mix-up.
Someone from the North East came up with the same team name 'Nouveau Norsemen " and competing in Canada ?
We decided to compete in Europe cause you get more points for fish.   ;)

Well I don't think anyone in Central Alberta will be doing much fishing of any kind this weekend. Overnight tonight -39 (-51 windchill) and a balmy -38 (-48 windchill) tomorrow am. Think I will be rearranging tackle boxes this weekend and doing some wood working projects!!!

Not too bad here on the coast but the timing of the wind storms is driving me nuts. Yesterday on the way to work the water was flat calm sunny and the temp hit 10 degrees. Today the forecast is for 60k winds. This is the 3rd weekend in a row.  :(. I think I feel some mid week piscine fever coming on!

I just saw my first real sing of spring ion the way home for lunch. marsh creak if open and full to the banks. with the current freezing rain, this could be the first flooding of spring. not legal to fish that creak for another 2 weeks, but at least it looking better than the 3+' of ice in the main rivers.

They have 4 carp for 2014 so far. No haven't seen them on any other forum. Pretty sure the White brothers are fishing in Ontario and
 are just having fun and are representing our aboriginal people.

MichaelAngelo is off to a great start this year and am sure he'll catch a bunch of species. Almost had him on our team, but
Dave coaxed him to his team. WTG Michael.

Thanks . Yep young micheal out to fish , great for daves team. The fishing somewhat erratic this year. Superwarm on weekend and windy and snow expected for most of east ontario then back to nice again. Unreal. Fishing this year will be interesting with all early season tournies sure to be slow ,low catches and unexpected from the cold

Trying to keep pace with you guys had me on the North Sask river yesterday morning, dodging ice bergs and various other debris. Less than 6" of water clarity and a pretty good flow only had me out for a couple hours & no fish. Slowly building my confidence on flowing waters.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: PikeCreek on April 20, 2014, 12:06:04 pm
KC, you can't beat the power of the peddle in flowing waters.  I wouldn't be enjoying the sport to the extent that I have if it weren't for peddling a kayak.  With Native Watercraft's latest entry into the market, there are more choices. 

With the number of converts from this site alone over the winter, I think the paddle purists will be outnumbered soon.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Kayak Curtis on April 20, 2014, 12:34:38 pm
I have no doubts that it would be the way to go on rivers and could see myself maybe adding one to my fleet in the future for that purpose alone. Tell you tho, I do love  paddling my butt off in highwinds, and waves, its a huge part of the rush, challenge and enjoyment I get out of kayak fishing.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: PikeCreek on April 20, 2014, 12:55:25 pm
I can relate, for those of us that braved the Detroit River this weekend we have sore butts from the hard peddling.

Finally found some water that wasn't still froze over and got bit for the first time this season. It just happened to be large enough to register for Kayak Wars

LMAO I sure hope so....Most our lakes are still iced over in NB and the rivers are still at flood level. Luckly a few lakes opened up this week and with some nicer weather like shooter said we should all be getting out real soon. I am off to Maine all next week so hoping to add a few KW pts down there ;)

nice fish t2!

 I also did an ohps on my entry today. I was eating a feed of yellow perch while making my entry....and put down a 12.5" brook trout as a 12.5" yellow perch. I guess next time i'll have to do the entry and then eat lol! correction already requested. homebrew and I landed a bunch of yellow perch, closest to points was .5" to short, with eagle claw marks...! Craig and I were on the brookies for as while this afternoon.

if you are waiting for the system to respond when making an entry, unlike a lot of other sites you can not hit it again to hurray it up - it puts in another entry again.

Continuing the topic on proper post guys. I finally got an insurance from the kayak war staff . That prizes being shipped out right away from last years contest. I believe pressure from sponsors has helped move along the product. Not much of an excuse other han the stuff has been sitting here for months. Lol

A nice boundary 100 mile buffer would be perfect for everyone on borders or there division area because of closeness of another division. For all groups. This way if guys like us or anyone else travels far away they cant be used . Would work great. Still waiting for the canadian record division.

Simple bordering states/water bodies  only otherwise all Canadian fish.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: PikeCreek on June 03, 2014, 01:44:40 pm
I could live with bordering states water bodies because it covers the Great Lakes Regions.   Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

I started participating on Kayak Wars before there was a Canadian Division and it was open to all waters in North America.  No one cared.  Not sure why it is an issue. 

If I don't like it I will join an American team again where they can fish Canadian water and no one cares.

Sure the species list is North American, but I'm competing in the Canadian freshwater portion along with my team. So can I recruit some Texans next year and win the canadian side of things??
 Not difficult to understand I'd think.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: PikeCreek on June 03, 2014, 03:02:49 pm
What is the problem with having a team of Canadians that fish all over.  Or a team of Americans that fish in Canada.  I think you may have a problem telling them where they can fish or not fish.

If you want to add a guy from Texas (which I wouldn't have a problem with) then it should be a North American Region only.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Kayak Curtis on June 03, 2014, 03:05:56 pm
What u said about the Texan then it would be North American division, so if you can see that. How are Kentucky fish any different??
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Boknows on June 03, 2014, 04:12:17 pm
The fish are north american, likely because KW doesn't want to devise the specie list…and the teams are broken up to Canadian and USA…..Guys that live in lower States could fish here and add points to their team…vacations, fishing trips…whatever…I see no issue with the rules the way they are now.  It's fair across the board….anyone can go anywhere in North America and fish and it's worth something…Idk why this always comes up to be a problem.

Post by: Boknows on June 03, 2014, 04:55:48 pm
KC…instead of putting put the "wow"…tell me please, in peaceful terms why there needs to be a Canadian division in KW…why not just keep KW all North American…we already have a Canadian online derby here in the CKA….maybe i'm naive to the whole thing but I really think us dividing from the North American seems to be sort of anti KW. 
I'm open to hearing what the issues are in your mind.  Peaceful debate can be healthy for this sport as we all have good things to offer.  So please…put it out there.

Catch fish and have fun. Dont split hairs. 

People get too bent out of shape over this, like it will be the end of the world.  Accept the fact that there will always be someone that will find loopholes.  If you keep caring about what other people do you'll be so focused on their stuff, that youll never do anything on your own.

Ive discovered that anything you do, someone is going to have issues with it, so either do nothing or just keep doing what youre doing and have fun.  If someone takes a trip, catches a few fish, then adds them.  I HIGHLY doubt that little trip will ever be the defining reason why Person "X" won KW. Getting all upset over something so silly is such a waste of energy/time, which could be focused on something a little more constructive. 

If someone exploits a certain rule, thats fine, let it go. Most folks will realize that thats what happened, and it will come to light.  If KW doesnt address it.. so be it. its YOUR choice to participate.  If you dont agree, then dont participate.  Start your own thing, make your own following, and stand out....

Move on.

Sorry BoKnows I put it in very simple terms with my reference to picking up a few "texans". Your teammate showed me he agrees with me, by saying wed need a North American division in that case, it can't be any more simple than that.

You guys made me see that "maybe" we were wrong with the ice fishing thing and we backed down. " maybe" you guys should admit this could be and is controversial and not enter fish from non neighbouring states and back down as well.

Post by: PikeCreek on June 03, 2014, 06:27:30 pm
That wasn't my intent of a comparison to the Texas comment but maybe just Drop the Canadian division so we don't have such a petty discussion on where we fish.  The we can have a North American Saltwater division.

I'm in it to compete against Canadians. We have roughly the same winter, give or take a month or two.
 I would have never bothered with this if I had to compete against the states teams. So do they drop the Carribean division as well then and have them join the fray as well. It's part of North America too...

Hey guys, I have been noticing a few of you guys down east need to build yourself some bigger measure boards. Theoretically you shouldn't be claiming trophy points for your muskies since they require proof of length. The one is clearly over and I will take your word on the other one but just something to think about in the future. Something to consider is finding a way to mount a sticker like I did in my footwell, works good for the larger pike and adds no extra gear/weight to carry. A large musky might be a little bit of fun in that situation though lol.

Unexpected muskie lengths achieved but wasnt expected that day. Bigger boards ready to go. The pics the hardest to take for first timers catching the gators in faster current waters. Ready for more beasts to come. Bass season here another week and a half away from loading up them on kwars from Canadian side

Nice pike Ravyak.
It's tough to get a good board pic of long fish.
Ideally I want to see something like this for record fish
to be put in our registry.

(http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae142/brentlepine/fish2013/DSCF0831_zpse4217db9.jpg)

Yeah it helps to have long arms, and for sturgeon what to do, tail rope it
and go to shore ?
That board is made of 1x4's, painted white and tailor tapes added.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Kayak Curtis on June 17, 2014, 02:48:10 pm
Big fish are very hard to get the pics of for sure. Ravyak can't really complain about the 50" musky pic tho, your pike pic can't see the measurements either, so should it be entered for trophy points?? We have to have some faith in our fellow anglers.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Ravyak on June 17, 2014, 05:36:55 pm
The 50 incher is obvious. It is the 41 incher that I am not sure about but like I said I will take your word on it. Just wanted to nicely inform the guys down east that theoretically someone could ask for the trophy points to be taken away since the rules state they need to show measurement which they don't.

Another idea is to build a 4 inch extension and add it to your current boards as that would make it long enough to prove musky are trophies.
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: shooter on June 17, 2014, 08:00:23 pm
Sorry for the online pic Ravyak. Obviously my fish. Its actually longer then the 41 inch. First time taking pic of ski and in direct sunlight. It is clearly 3 inches over front and back. Board 36 " , and same board used most time.

I replied there but might as well do so here too. Record and trophy fish require proof of measurement as stated in the rules. He doesn't have it so his fish should be reduced to 36 inches as that is all that can be proven.

MA's carp is on a plano board, nothing wrong there.
And a picture on the beach with a piece of kayak in it is fine.
I just don't know how long the board is fully strectched, from stop to
end 36 1/2", 37", and tail over a 1/4" ?
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: ipop on June 27, 2014, 09:13:13 am
my first pike ever. this is where I was instead of at the nb paddlers tourney - family fishing vacation mid/northern Quebec. I'll have to look closely at the zone map but I think I was  just south of where we  mark the green zone in  Quebec. my second try there for pike, I landed these in the pouring rain and a few  smaller ones from the kayak and a much bigger one the day before from an inflatable powerboat. 
funny thing, after catching all those toothy critters there, I come back and fish for pickerel the next day. first cast I notice the rod felt weird, then I hook up with a little 14" pickerel, it swims under the yak, the rod bends...and bends..and bends - I'm thinking this is a medium heavy - what's going on? and then the rod snaps in 2-!!! nasty words, I check it out and looks like it was half broke and the little pickerel took care of the rest, cutting about 6" out of the middle. I look at it and think , mayyyybe. I try the broken end into the  other section and it fits, and is even fairly snug. so I keep fishing with the rod all day - after all, what harm could I do - break it - lol. so about 2 pickerel later a fair size toothy fish comes up...and takes my gear - not even a tug - the line just goes slack -hmmm, odd. then another 3 pickerel later, other end of the lake...nice size toothy critter...and almost the same thing...??! so twice pickerel shear off line like it wasn't there and a bunch of pike didn't cut through the exact same leader (20lb floro). I think this was a case of exceptional pickerel more than dull tooth pike. either way I put on some 40lb chum leader and kept on fishing...in the rain.

Can't prove the length as the picture doesn't show the measurement. Longest length he can claim is the total length of plano board which is maybe 36.5". That is why it is key to have a measurement board/method big enough for large fish if you are worried about records etc.

Good point Curtis. Goldman point only good for someone if they catch more than 2 species. I know its hard for u with limited species out west. Ive been going outta my way to get the harder species first this month rather than the easiest with the great team i have. I dont have the luxury of keeping all to myself. Otherwise my total point would easily be far greater,since already I and other team members have left points that dont count for individual stats. Today was a huge blast with learning still about catching gar pike. Managed 6 outta 20 fish . The odds are against u catching them.  (http://i1287.photobucket.com/albums/a621/kayakshooter/miscellanouspicsaug222014044_zps4d8fbab5.jpg) (http://s1287.photobucket.com/user/kayakshooter/media/miscellanouspicsaug222014044_zps4d8fbab5.jpg.html)Kayak Wars prizes are not much  anyways, other than the goldman prizes.

the same one 5 times now night fishing in the last 2 weeks.
Its a good one, well longer than 42" anyways.  ;)
They are more active at night in August around here.

Got a little clip of the 5ft sturgeon I landed on salmon gear after side hooking it. But can't upload it here.

Hit the Fraser river on Sunday for what was supposed to be a sturgeon outing but ended up being mostly a salmon trip. Had a blast anyways with my Brother and grandpa landing their first ever salmon. Brother got 3, grandpa got 2 and my dad landed 1 sockeye salmon. I had one to the boat before it escaped. I still have yet to land a salmon ever.

Managed to hook into something heavy on my salmon rod we had pull anchor and chase it down. Quite amussing having every boat and shore anglers eyes fixed on what your doing. At one point the guide mentioned how he'd hate to cut the line without seeing the fish (with the chance it was a monster spring the thought never crossed my mind) after a 25 minute battle I  pulled up a 5 foot sturgeon that was hooked in the side with my tiny hook and a piece of yarn. What a blast.
After a few more hours trying for salmon we geared up for sturgeon. We missed a few good hits before I managed to land a 3ftr. My brother had another5ftr on for only about 30 seconds before it jumped. I actually saw the open mouth and the bait come flying out.
I may not have got any salmon but I was the only one to land any sturgeon. So no monsters landed, but a incredible day on the water. I was more than happy being the net man for my family while they landed salmon since they hardly ever fish.

I caught this 4 footer this weekend shore fishing the NSR.  He fought really good hooked in the mouth, I could only imagine how hard a 5 foot foul hooked sturgeon would be able to pull. Now that I know a decent spot I will probably go and try to get one out of the kayak just to see how it goes.

I haven't been uploading fish to KW because of a dispute but I have been keeping an eye on what guys have been catching(nice salmon down east btw). While I was perusing photos I noticed that they finally created a Canadian section for records. Figured I would let you guys know in case no one else had noticed yet. There are some really nice fish on there, going to be tough to beat some of those records.

Nice 14" yellow perch Rich !
I've seen 5 of my previous records fall this year and have been in
a rut lately. Guess I wont be breaking any sauger, crappie or sm records this year.
 Been skunked for 3 of my last 4 outings and even
payed $56 to fish a rainbow lake and didn't catch one !
Think it's been tough for everyone lately with cooler and windier
conditions than normal. This week looks windy too,  the wait to
attempt Quinte wallski is gonna be trying, eh Jeremy ?

Caught on a Deep Reef Runner,lol

Drove 2 hours each way last Thursday to fish Lake Huron out of Port Sanilac, only to get skunked.

Spent 8 hours on the water Sunday to participate in the Muskie Challenge ($80 entry) where it was 30deg when we launched with 18 to 25 mph on shore winds to start the day, only to get skunked.

Hoping to get out tomorrow mid day to continue the quest for a fat fall 50"er, but the weather forecast has the wind kicking up that might make it difficult.

Planning a few days in Grand Rapids (3 hours each way) to target River Steelhead this month.  I am good for about 50% of trips to Grand Rapids in last 4 years. 

It wouldn't be fishing if we caught fish every time we went out. 

Brent if it was a little closer I would join you for those Quinte Giants

I have been skunked the last 2 trips here too, fall weather must have turned the fish bite off. Sturgeon bite had been getting better with the cooler weather so might have to give that another try, just about ready to put the boat away for the winter now as our lakes are starting to freeze over now.

This year there has a plentiful amount of fish caught, the weather has been so so again with most of the summer cooler than normal. This fall we've had most of the days nice during the week but wind has been the big issue like last year stirring up our main fishing spots. And the tail end like most of Ontario looks to be windy and below normal on the weekends. Brent i hope you get out and catch some good size walleye,considering this is your hot time. As for me id like to find some Lake Erie bass ,perch and walleye in slow mode. However nobody i know goes out at this time of year(boaters),and u really need to find out where the schools are so your not wasting your time.And my fishing buddy Dan just needs a few more points to get himself into the top 20 goldman points . That would make 3 canucks . A big suggestion i have for next year is an west/central/east coast teams to even things out point wise, and more species thrown into the mix this way across Canada

Post by: Homebrew76 on November 05, 2014, 07:27:11 am
Not a bad idea shooter.   I know I accidentally stepped on IPop's toes once this year as we really had no choice but to be targeting the same species given we typically fish together!   Not sure how easy it will be to try and piece together several teams as everyone would pretty much need to buy into the idea.

.... but more importantly, how do we work the end of season beer and bbq party in someone's garage?    I'll volunteer my place for the first one!  lol

I love the new blood , less problems with same species and not holding an individual back from more goldman as much. And it would also be a good idea for this site also with some type of team event and scrap the individual event on here . Make a bunch of teams, and pick species or some other team event online per month of fishing. Just suggestions. This also get away from the lone ranger teams because of mainly same species
Title: Re: kayak wars 2014
Post by: Ravyak on November 05, 2014, 10:04:09 am
The feud between myself and KC pretty much started because of our lack of easily catchable species... Since our 5 members could only easily catch walleye and pike we had to pick between team or individual standings and after a couple misunderstandings/disagreements and what I consider a flawed system it spiralled out of control... Having team mates that target other species would definitely make it easier to not step on people's toes.

If I enter next year it will be more for fun and I will just upload fish when I can. This year I took it too serious at first because I was unemployed and had nothing better to do...

Thanks for posting. Yep thats the main reason for the split and runaway team. I wanna fish my fishing buddies here but no worries as much about species and more control of what goes on. I dont wanna piss off anyone this way. Believe me i still had more than my share and still left hundreds of point off the site including the other guys. With the country wide teams would not be as much an issue. And this has nothing to do with being a team member. Any west coast / east coast wanna be on my team lol

Kayak Wars is a team event.  I fished my first year on Kayak wars with guys from 3 different states and myself in Canada. I tried hard to get out with everyone at least once and that was difficult.  I think that if KW would eliminate the individual standings we wouldn't be talking about splitting up teams across the country.  There are other online derbies that are for individuals.  I like participating on a local team with everyone from the same area.  It would force you to work as a team to split up your targeted species.  I understand that in Alberta it is difficult and maybe other parts of the country but this is for fun and it is still first a team sport.  Here in Essex County we have enough species to go after that we don't need to split things up. 

The feuds are a result of one or more persons on a team turning the season long event into an individual competition.  Guys this is a team event to go out and have fun and as most of you have already found out the prizes aren't something that you need to get to serious about.

There is no "I" (or me) in the word "Team"

We tried to divy up species between us out here and if everyone would have kept playing as part of our team it would have alleviated a lot of the pressure I felt to fill pike and walleye the past few months. and our team might have continued to fight for 1st.
The way I see it unless they raise monthly limits cross country teams are the way to go.
Who knows this will even be running next year. Organizers showed no real involvement. 1 whole contest this year( poorly advertised).entries without kayaks, corrections not being made when requested or several months later. What I've seen on KW forum this year looks likee plenty of people that have been involved won't brb returning next year because of the above mentioned.

I have no issues with KW, it serves the purpose what I look to get out of it and I think the people that are not happy with it are the ones that take it too serious. Just my opinion!

I don't even measure all the fish that I should cause if I am going for a certain species and I catch one of the others, I don't want to be bothered taking the time to get my board out and measure the species I am not targeting.  If it is a trophy or one that I haven't caught yes I will take the time.

The I in team is somewhat if a personal joke. I personally have fun everytime i go out. Take the time to help the other team members where the fish are and show them. And any ither suggestions and info. I dont hoard to myself. And even up it for everyone outthere. So more get involved. I dont like the runaway team like ourselves.

Oh Yeah !
Feel better, had a good day.  :)
Too bad no one could make it out to share the experience of bass fishn in November, I tried.
We'll make our teams however we want, with the main purpose to push each other
to get out and share experiences in the great outdoors. It would be
nice to see BC lads playing again.
If you're worried about points move to Europe or southern states.
Did the "point thing" this year, felt a bit perverse, and will focus on species,
quality and the main thing awesome adventures with paddlers of like mind.  :)


Think the KW veterans are getting tied of the game too, see many not posting much lately.

I didn't think anybody was in this purely as a individual!!& certainly not the 2 guys currently sitting on top of the angler standings. If Shooter was wanting to be top individual he would have never put myself and others visiting during the BCC on the fish he did or share tactics and gear& spots like he did. As for myself if I was worried about individual standings I wouldn't have spent every single Sunday of the fishing season with my  buddy who's in a wheelchair out in his boat nailing the fish, I would haven been in the yak racking up points.
The only thing the individual standings show me is who spends the most time on the water doing something he or she loves.

Making cross country teams is a great idea. Likely could get more people involved that don't know enough kayak anglers to form their own team in there region or province for that matter. It should equal More teams & more competitive teams. Not that there was anything stopping us from making teams up however we wanted in the first place.

Very good comments Brent.  I still enjoy KW and will continue to participate.  I won't let the temptation of catching fish for the sake of racking up points get in the way of quality and experiences, and I will participate with a team of local guys.  It is like getting out to play golf.  Sometimes you go by yourself to work on your game and sometimes you play with a group for the camaraderie.  For me fishing replaced golfing.

" For me fishing replaced golfing" I tried boiling the hell out of those little white mothers but I just couldn't get them tender. Fish taste way better! ;D

That's good fishing T2, go after something you want to eat, that's what I use to do,
lots of selective harvest.  :)
Good job Shooter and KC, enjoy your point battle.  ;)
Give er !  :D

My last trip of the year was today,baring a miracle in weather.
 Well I woke up at a ungodly hour & I decided to drive to find above 0 temps and ended up finishing my season on such a high with 2 different trout species PBs ones a tie for CKA record.
 Trip report soon to come I need sleep.

Since Voltoms Brook Trout record is only really 18" I'll be taking that record  from him it looks like.

Nice, I knew there were big brookies there but was surprised how big those browns are. This was the first year they stocked them and they were supposedly only 18 cms, obviously a few of them were larger then that.

Too bad that lake isn't a little bit closer, it is a nice little lake.

Not sure what lake you think it is but I bet your wrong. Been stocked for several years now.
