RE:Arctic Char

I agree with you on the reclassification thing. I think croaking or not after the spawn is more indicative of relatedness than protein structure. That still leaves us with three groups, of course:...

RE:Arctic Char

Mylo, you're on the right track. The char (brookies, arctic, dolly varden, etc.) are all in the Salvelinus family. The Pacific salmon and trout (rainbow/steelhead plus the five Pacific salmon) are...

RE:Trout Stocking 2001

>>but what bugs me a little is the lack of thinking about protection and welfare of existing wild fish stocks by F&G agencies. Maybe they're thinking about it but not publishing anything?<<

RE:Ted Williams, an angling hero in my book

RE:Ted Williams, an angling hero in my book

At the risk of piling on, Juro...NO. It was Emily Litella, not Roseanne Rosanadana.

RE:Bleak Picture for the Salmon of the World

Yeah, well, who you gonna root for? Fish farms pollute. Not just salmon farms, shrimp farms are heavy polluters as well.

Iconography?

I get the WSC, the infinity symbol, and those lost rainbow trout, but what's with the pawnshop balls?

RE:Seventy Days Until the Stripers Arrive

Seventy days? Yer a pessimist, coach. Fifty-nine from the date of your post to the date of my first last year. (And that's not counting any winter-overs that fall for it on some unseasonably sunny...

RE:SHARK!

There's a MetroWest chapter, I don't think there's a Worcester chapter yet. (Though there's been some talk of one, owing to the great population of landlocked striper fanatics in Worcester itself.)...

RE:The missing link...

I've watched stripers feeding on juvi flounder, but it wasn't in burrowing-in-sand conditions. There's a gulf on the south shore that feeds into the ocean through a small trough which becomes...

12/29 still at the Indian Head

Ice in the guides, frostbite at least plausible on the toes, ice lining the banks, and yet trout were actually rising on the Indian Head. I don't know if they were rising *to* anything particular, I...

RE:11/18 Indian Head

Well, if any of you were dying of curiosity about my little blue-browns, the mystery is solved. I talked to Steve Hurley at the DFW.

They're hatchery fish, overstock from the McLaughlin hatchery...

RE:Tiger Trout

Awright, back to basics: did the critter have spots lighter than the background, or darker?

Light spots on dark background = char.
Dark spots on light background = trout.

RE:Casting practice
