Thanks Brent!  Sucker cut bait seems to be the standard for that area.  Got one fish in the first half hour floatfishing some current in 3 feet of water.  Then 6 hours later saw some boats catching in 14 feet, anchored nearby and eventually started to get a few.  Red Rocket hooked up while having a snooze and gave us the ok to drop anchor in the area.  It was a fun day and the first time out of 4 trips that I had caught any fish there.

I see tiger trout added to kw species list ( good going KC ).
Also sunfish limit increased to 20 a month, darn I should have kept
fishing for them, lol . Crappie barely biting yet and not much else available
nearby yet.  Rock n Roll.

I just wish I had known before I went out I only took a couple pics...might have had a couple more close to min size...Oh well...I was curious to see how they faired the winter with no regulations in place yet, numbers waaay down so is average size available. Heres hoping they become a listed species soon and have some protection from the masses.

Yeah AEP dropped the ball hard on our tigers... Hoping to get out and nail some shortly.

Guessing they won't be as easy to catch as they were last fall. Gonna be a lot less of them and gonna be a lot smarter now too.

Cutties are by far and away the worst fish to try and photograph. I thought it was brookies but I was wrong...

Yep almost anything of size got put in a garbage bag with dozens of others almost daily, definitely a embarrassment for real sportsmen that this was allowed to happen. I really hope they didn't go to waste in somebody's freezer...

& I still say Brookies, although any trout can be difficult to pose right after ice out in coooold water...

I believe it is one of the things they are still working on. For now have to email Jason, they have been keeping a close eye and staying on top of submissions so far.

If anyone would be interested in purchasing a power-pole anchor system let me know. I don't have a use for it myself so will be looking to sell the gift card to someone that would like one. I know some of you guys are more into the bass fishing and fish shallower water so might work better for some of you guys.

Gift card is for 250 USD but I will give a good deal on it if someone is interested.

And 7 in the top 20 for the skirmish.
Man that's a lot of beaut trouts you caught there Tyler. Cong!
KW may have to start handicapping Canucks, hope not.
Power pole is a great accessory, but yeah can't stay still enough to have a use for it myself.
Greydog, pretty sure you can sign up still, go to KW main page to register.
There's one Cdn team with only 2 members, need 3 to make a team, will leave it to you

Been trying to get my trout fix in before the water temps get too high. Also been improving my fly fishing abilities which has made a huge difference on catch rate. Struggling to get anything big yet this year though.

Sent an e-mail to jason@kayakwars.com to rid a couple duplicate entries.
Duplicates were deleted the next day. Just suggesting to e-mail Jason to correct entries,
especially those ones that are the wrong species for our Canadian record section IMO !

Jason is pretty much of on top of changes, and some get missed or not intentional. The day caught needs to get back up on site to make it easier.  The mislabled species will straighten up shortly. And the fish amounts down for me. I need some inland lakes that are stocked with no competition on them lol. Lol
