Brook Trout

Brook Trout

Trout Species – Brook Trout
by: Brett Fogle

Brook Trout: Frequently gullible, yet extremely tasty, Brook Trout are wonderful trout to fish for - especially since they frequently inhabit the most beautiful stream settings in the U.S.

The Brook Trout was originally found in the Midwest and along the East Coast. It is sort of the Eastern counterpart to the Western Cutthroat trout – with its range extending all the way from Canada down to the streams in Georgia. Interestingly, the Brook Trout is not even part of the trout family, but instead belongs to the Char family of fish that also includes the Lake Trout and Dolly Varden.

Brook Trout live in clear, cold waters. Due to the cold waters and the fact that Brook Trout live a shorter life generally than rainbow and Brown Trout, Brook Trout usually do not grow nearly as big.

Today, most of the best Brook Trout fishing is no longer found out East.

The cold, clear water that Brook Trout prefer no longer exists like it use to. Instead, Brook Trout are mainly found in the Western United States (mainly due to transplanting) in the colder rivers and lakes of the Rocky Mountains - especially in higher lakes that often require hiking to reach. Canada also continues of provide excellent fishing for Brook Trout, while Argentina is now also home to some of the worlds’ largest Brook Trout.

Brook Trout are also small due to another factor – over planting. Brook Trout have been so extensively planted in many lakes and streams that there are starting to be too many of them. This overcrowding often leads to stunted growth. Of course, the plus side of this is that these small Brook Trout are extremely easy to catch and they taste good, too! Of all the trout in the world, for the angler who absolutely must take home some fish at the end of the day, taking home some Brook Trout is a good way to satisfy the palette without compromising the overall fishing quality.

The Brook Trout is a beautiful fish. It’s sides and back consist of various shades of gunmetal gray, with highlights of orange, red and cream spots. The fins of a Brook Trout also have a white edge around them and during spawning season, the bottom of the Brook Trout turns a beautiful orange-red color.

Fish Burgers

For some mouth watering Fish Burgers

Tilapia Fish Burgers

by The Maitre D


This past weekend we had a group of friends over for an evening barbeque. As you would know from previous recipes we have published, we like to provide our guests with something outside of the usual on our barbeque. In this case, several of our friends did not eat red meat. That meant that while we would still provide some good ol’ red meat for those who wanted it, we had to come up with some alternative to keep everybody happy. The solution was fish burgers, in this case using tilapia, although almost any fish would do. Well the guests who tried them raved so much about them that even our red meat eating guests tried them. By the end of the evening I was out of fish burgers and had lots of the regular ones left un-cooked and un-eaten. Try these out for your next barbeque and see the great reaction you’ll get from your guests.


Ingredients:



1 ½ pounds of fresh Tilapia, minced (almost any other fish like tuna, salmon, snapper will do just as well)



½ cup dry breadcrumbs



¼ cup finely chopped green chives



¼ cup finely chopped radish



1 ½ finely grated ginger root (check the end of the recipe for a tip on how to easily grate garlic root)



2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro



1 tsp sesame oil



2 tbs sunflower seeds



1 tbs lite soy sauce



1 tbs fish sauce



½ tsp ground cumin



¼ tsp salt



¼ teaspoon black pepper



1 egg, beaten


Directions:


In a bowl, thoroughly mix minced tilapia, breadcrumbs, chives, radish, ginger, cilantro, sesame oil, sunflower seeds, soy sauce, fish sauce, cumin, salt, black pepper and egg. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes


Form into patties (this recipe makes 6) and then cook them as you would any other burger, either on the bbq or under the broiler. Being fish they will cook faster than a regular hamburger so put them in later or move them to an upper rack once they are done.


Enjoy!


Tip on grating ginger root - freeze the ginger root whole. Take it out of the freezer just before you grate it and it will grate with ease. You don’t even need to peel it.

Responsible Recreation

Responsible Recreation

Keys to Responsible Recreation in the BackCountry

by: Chuck Fitzgerald

Having a good time is pretty high on everyone’s to do list, especially when surrounded by awesome views and super-awesome friends. We hike, bike, climb, camp, raft, fish, hunt, four-wheel, sleep and eat – among other things – in the backcountry. If not done properly, that’s a lot of wear and tear on our natural resources. Responsible recreation ensures future outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors as you have. Without a recreation code of ethics, our backcountry would become a thing of the past. Here are some universally agreed upon keys for having a good time – the right way.

-Take only pictures, leave only footprints. If you carry it in, carry it out. This will eliminate litter.

-Protect water sources from contamination. Use bio-degradable soap, or try hot water soap-less dishwashing, bathing and clothes washing. When using soap (even bio-degradable) and toothpaste, dispose of the wastewater at least 100 feet away from natural water sources, well or faucet water sources.

-Be a good neighbor - control your noise and your pets. Always keep your dog on a leash no longer than 6 feet, and away from public swimming areas. Barking and not cleaning up after pets leads to many complaints from other outdoor enthusiasts. Do not leave pets unattended.

-Be respectful of the natural environment – keep the trees and shrubs alive and growing. Nails and wires should not be used on trees because they can cause serious damage to trees. Burn damage will permanently scar or kill a tree.

-When hiking or biking, stay on designated trails. This keeps damage to vegetation and erosion in one place.

-Before leaving your campsite, clean your fire pit and your campsite. Make it as clean as you would want it if you were arriving that day. The next user will appreciate it.

Leave-No-Trace, www.lnt.org, offers the following Principles for Outdoor Ethics: Plan Ahead and Prepare, Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces, Dispose of Waste Properly, Leave What You Find, Minimize Campfire Impacts, Respect Wildlife and Be Considerate of Other Visitors.

Here is the Tread Lightly!, www.treadlightly.org, pledge: Travel and recreate with minimum impact, Respect the environment and the rights of others, Educate yourself – plan and prepare before you go, Allow for future use of the outdoors – leave it better than you found it and Discover the rewards of responsible recreation.

Responsible recreation means having the common sense and the courtesy to enjoy the backcountry without spoiling someone else’s experience. Most outdoor enthusiasts understand this very well and spend a good deal of their time restoring, enhancing and conserving our backcountry. Have a good time when you’re outdoors, share these keys with your friends and use this information to Get It Right The First Time.

Fishing Safety Rules

Fishing Safety Rules

Making the most of your time - Fishing Safety rules everyone should know

by: Rebecca Blain

When you are going fishing, whether nearby your home or on a long distance trip, there are many fishing safety rules that you need to keep in mind.

These rules can help prevent injury to yourself and others while shore and boat fishing.

There are several different areas of fishing safety that you should be aware of. These include the following:

Equipment Safety
Pier Fishing Safety
Offshore Fishing Safety
Shore Fishing Safety and Noodling
Ice Fishing Safety
Equipment Safety

Before you go fishing, you need to make certain that all of your equipment is in safe working order. This should be done before you even consider going out to any waterfront. You need to check several things while looking over your various pieces of equipment.

First, you need to check your fishing rod and reel. Both of these pieces should be in top condition, with the rod having no cracks or breaks. If your rod separates, you need to make certain that it is very secure when it is built together. The reel itself should operate smoothly, with the line coiling without tangles. If the line is tangling quite a bit within the reel, you will need to unbind the line and replace it with new. If this behavior continues, you should consider a new reel.

The type of line that you use should be a consideration as well. Dependent on the conditions you are going to be fishing in, you will want to use different line. With rocky bottoms, where your line is going to get caught easier, you will want to use a lower line rating. If you are fishing for larger fish, the test on the line should be increased to match what you are planning on catching.

The final fishing safety check that you should make is on your tackle, sinkers
and lures. If any of these are rusted, you should replace them with new ones,
as rusted equipment can change a mild injury into tetnis or a worse illness.

Pier Fishing Safety

One type of fishing that many people enjoy is pier fishing. When you go fishing
off of a pier, there are several fishing safety rules that you should keep in
mind. First, you should only place your feet into the water if you know that
there are not vicious fish, such as Muskie, in the water. Muskie, as well as other types of vicious fish, are renown for biting off the toes of unsuspecting fishers off of piers. For this reason, you should avoid doing this. In addition to this,
you should never run on the piers, especially if you are carrying any sharp equipment. The most important thing to keep in mind when pier fishing is to use
your common sense. Falling from the pier, especially taller ones, can be life threatening. Leaning over the pier edge, as well as being careless, can put
yourself and others in danger.

Offshore Fishing Safety

When you go on a boat for a session of offshore fishing, you need to be extra careful. Out of all of the forms of fishing, this is the most dangerous. You need
to be aware of the weather and potential weather changes at all times. In addition to this, you need to make certain that you are always wearing a life preserver. While these may be uncomfortable, or ugly to wear, they can make the difference between life and death. You should always make certain that you know you do not
hit anyone with your hook when you are casting. This is the most dangerous aspect of offshore fishing, as you are most likely fishing in close quarters, which requires
a higher level of skill when you are casting. Hooking yourself or a companion is a real likely hood in this style of fishing, unless you are extremely careful.

Shore Fishing and Noodling

Shore fishing is the style of fishing that most people participate. During fishing seasons, hundreds of people gather around oceans and rivers and ponds to take their hand at trying to catch the largest fish possible. Lures are constantly flying through the air, and lines get tangled more often than not. When you are shore fishing, you need to make certain you are aware of all of the people around you,
and that they are aware of you. Taking children to crowded beaches for fishing can be extremely dangerous, as they can get hooked while running and playing. Injuries sustained in this manner can be severe. As long as you are careful, and you do not run or dart across the path of someone casting, shore fishing can be the safest of all types of fishing.

There is one form of shore fishing, however, that is extremely dangerous. This is called "Noodling". Noodling, or another term for "Idiot", is the practice of wading out to waist or chest level and bending down to search holes, logs and other hiding holes for catfish. Then you wiggle your fingers. If there is a catfish - or another type of creature in residence - they will attack your bare hand. Then the fight begins, and the Noodler needs to bring the fish to shore. Many lose their lives yearly to this extreme sport, and it should be avoided, as it is not safe.

Ice Fishing Safety

When you are going ice fishing, there are a lot of safety rules that you need to follow at all times. Unlike the other forms of standard fishing, ice fishing presents a lot of health risks. First, you should never go ice fishing without a well built shack. The shacks provide you shelter while you are ice fishing.
Without this shelter, you will be susceptible to hypothermia and other health related problems.

The second thing you need to keep in mind at all times is the condition of the ice and the weather predictions. Falling through the ice while ice fishing, especially alone, is a death sentence. Being trapped on the open ice during a blizzard is also extremely dangerous, even with the shelter of an ice shack available. When you are stocking your ice shack, you need to make certain that you have enough wood for the wood stove, or heating device within the shack. This device should also be cared
for and watched over at all times, so the ice beneath the shack remains stable or that the shack does not burn.

If you keep these fishing safety tips and rules in mind, you should be able to
have an enjoyable time fishing without high risk of injury to yourself or others,
no matter which form of fishing you choose to participate in.

Winter Trout Fly Fishing

Winter Trout Fly Fishing


Have you ever tried winter fly fishing? Read this article by Cameron Larsen.

It is winter time now. One step on the frozen porch steps first thing in the morning removes any doubt of that fact. Winter time brings on many thoughts, holidays, dark afternoons, football on TV and for me some of the best trout fly fishing there is. That’s right trout fishing, winter steelhead fly fishing has been around a long time, and gets more popular every season. But the truth of the matter is trout fly fishing can be excellent, the crowds are down to non-existent, the scenery and wildlife are plentiful, and it makes those long days of early spring with non-stop rain and overflowing rivers more tolerable.

Hypothermia

Hypothermia

Hypothermia


By Greg Rouse

Hypothermia is considered the number one killer in the outdoors. It can occur in both warm (summer) and cold (winter) climates and is usually the combination of two factors, cold and wet. If you are in a warm tropical place and you add rain and wind, hypothermia can rear its ugly head.

It only requires an exposure time of several hours, but it can take up to a day. The myth that you will die in your sleep if you try to rest, is just that, a myth. If you are asleep, you will wake up to uncontrollable shivering and then progress into a state of disorientation if nothing is done. So if you want to try and huddle under a blanket and rest, by all means do it. But on the other hand, if you can’t stop shivering, you need to take action.

So what is it? Hypothermia is the lowering of the body's core temperature. The victim is usually dehydrated, exhausted, calorie depleted, wet and cold. As a result they often get what is known as the "umbles", they fumble, stumble and mumble.

Symptoms of Hypothermia

1. Uncontrollable fits of shivering.

2. Vague, slurred speech.

3. Memory lapses and incoherence.

4. Frequent stumbling.

5. Drowsiness.

Treatment of Hypothermia

1. Get the victim out of the wind and rain. Create a shelter.

2. Strip off all wet clothing.

3. Give warm drinks. Warm fluid will act as a blood volume expander.

4. Get the victim into dry clothes and a warm sleeping bag.

5. Feed the victim. Calories are a unit of heat, so stoke the furnace.

6. Allow the victim to rest until they have recovered.

Treatment of Severe Hypothermia (slow re-warming is highly recommended)

1. Get the victim out of the wind and rain.

2. Strip off all wet clothing.

3. Place the victim in a sleeping bag with another person for maximum warmth. Use hot water bottles inside a sock or heat packs, placed around the neck, arm pits, groin and in applied to the palms and soles of feet for best heat exchange.

4. Give warm drinks when the victim is alert.

5. Give food when possible.

6. Allow the victim to rest until they have recovered.

Note: If you are unable to climb into the sleeping bag with the victim for evacuation or other reasons, you may want to use a Hypothermia Wrap ---

Hypothermia Wrap

1. Lay a tarp or rain fly down on the ground.

2. Lay an insulating pad and/or two in the center.

3. Lay a dry sleeping bag on the pad.

4. After removal of wet clothing, place the victim in the sleeping bag.

5. Place hot water bottles or heat packs around the neck, arm pits, groin and applied to the palms and soles of feet.

6. Close the sleeping bag and place another sleeping bag or blanket on top.

7. Wrap the victim up in the tarp like a burrito and keep monitoring them.

* A key point to remember is that if you wrap a frozen salmon up in a sleeping bag, it will stay frozen. So, you must have external heat sources in the bag and they need to be check to make sure they remain warm.

* Also, be alert For "Afterdrop". Afterdrop is where the victim's core temperature goes down during the re-warming process. The cooled blood stranded in the extremities (vasoconstriction) will begin to return to the heart and to the regular blood volume.

Prevention of Hypothermia

In the Northwest, hypothermia occurs most often in cold, wet and windy weather. In the outdoor environment, hypothermia can occur rapidly if the backcountry traveler fails to dress for the conditions. Use hats, neck gaiters, and insulating layers to keep warm.

1. Stay dry. Wear raingear in wet conditions and wind gear as needed.

2. Be aware of the wind chill factor.

3. Eat and drink frequently.

4. Pace yourself and avoid fatigue.

5. Wear proper layers of clothing, made of synthetic fibers or wool.

As a final note, always handle a severe hypothermia victim with great care to avoid cardiac arrest. An irregular and ineffective heartbeat can occur from rough handling of the severely hypothermic victim.

Also, if you are unable to detect a pulse in a severely hypothermic victim, because of their fragile state, it is recommended that you first perform rescue breathing for a couple of minutes before you attempt CPR compressions (compressions are not very gentle). If there is a mild and undetectable heart beat, the warm oxygen will often increase the rate and strength of the heart beat so that you are able to detect it.

Lots Of Fishing Opportunities In GTA And Other Urban Areas

TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - Anglers of all ages can enjoy excellent fishing
opportunities
in urban areas close to home, Natural Resources Minister David
Ramsay announced today.
"More than 50 public waterways in the Greater Toronto Area alone offer
fine fishing," said Ramsay as he dropped a line at the Rouge Marshes today
with a group of young anglers from the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs.
"You can jump on the bus, the subway or a bike, and in minutes you can cast
for a carp or perch and feel like you've left the city behind."
This is the second year of 'Get Fishing' -- a three-year pilot program to
increase urban recreational fishing in the GTA, Ottawa-Carleton, and
Hamilton-Burlington areas. The program promotes angling opportunities for
young people and new Canadians and encourages fishing for underutilized
species. Last year the program supported 17 youth fishing events attended by
almost 6,000 participants.

Magical Lure

Magical Lure


The Myth of the Magical Lure

“What’s the best lure to catch walleyes with?” “Do those porky things really catch huge pike?” “What lure should I buy for trout fishing?” “Are poppers the best baits for bass, or are tube jigs better?” These are typical of the types of questions we get asked every day by mail and on the Real Fishing website, from anglers from all across the country. While the questions may seem pretty straightforward, they’re actually incredibly tough to answer because they all assume that there’s one simple answer to what’s really an extremely complex problem.

Getting Started In Tournaments

Getting Started In Tournaments

Since I began my career as a full-time angler in 1979, I’ve come to associate this time of year with fishing shows. Going to a show is a great way to spend a winter’s day — you can check out the latest tackle, shop for a new boat, and catch some great seminars. They’re also places to get the scoop on the year’s upcoming tournaments

Urban Fishing Fundamentals

There are several factors to keep in mind if you and your family want to enjoy a safe, legal and of course, fun-filled urban fishing excursion on one of the ponds, rivers or lakes in your area. Here are ten key guidelines for a positive fishing experience.

1. Get licensed. If you are between the ages of 18 and 64, chances are you will need a licence in order to fish. There are several types available as outlined in the Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary. Information is also available online.

2. Don't trespass. Before you begin fishing, ensure that you are not trespassing on private property. Most public urban fishery sites in the Greater Toronto Area have signs designating public access. If you are unsure, check with your local municipality.

Tasty winter fish. How was yours?

Indeed, fish, when caught from the frigid ice cold water, are at the year's best, with the flesh firm and flaky. It is during the winter that most ardent anglers regard fish as the best tasting, not having any muddy flavour, especially from waters which are quite warm during summer months.

Ice Fishing Trout

Deep-water lake trout feed best during the day, presumably when they can see the best. Shallow water trout feed best during dusk and dawn.

Most deep-water trout are caught on tip-ups, but you need a lot of line on the spool. Use smelt or cisco or suckers.

You will also need fairly heavy fishing line-preferably 25 to 30 lb. line on your tip-up.

The Power of Ice

by: Louise Roach

Using ice to treat injuries is one of the oldest methods of pain control. Proven to be safe and effective at reducing swelling, relieving pain and decreasing muscle spasms, ice therapy is an easy self-care technique that anyone can administer. Every mother knows to put ice on a bruised knee after a soccer game or on a teething toddler’s tender gums. But do you really know how ice works?

Cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy, works on the principle of heat exchange. This occurs when you place a cooler object in direct contact with an object of warmer temperature, such as ice against skin. The cooler object will absorb the heat of the warmer object. Why is this important when it comes to cold therapy?

After an injury, blood vessels that deliver oxygen and nutrients to cells are damaged. The cells around the injury increase their metabolism in an effort to consume more oxygen. When all of the oxygen is used up, the cells die. Also, the damaged blood vessels cannot remove waste. Blood cells and fluid seep into spaces around the muscle, resulting in swelling and bruising. When ice is applied, it lowers the temperature of the damaged tissue through heat exchange and constricts local blood vessels. This slows metabolism and the consumption of oxygen, therefore reducing the rate of cell damage and decreasing fluid build-up. Ice can also numb nerve endings. This stops the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain.

Most therapists and doctors advise not to use heat right after an injury, as this will have the opposite effect of ice. Heat increases blood flow and relaxes muscles. It’s good for easing tight muscles, but will only increase the pain and swelling of an injury by accelerating metabolism.

When it comes to cooling devices, different effects will result due to the device’s ability to exchange heat. Crushed ice packs do a better job at cooling the body than chemical or gel packs, because they last longer and are able to draw four times the amount of heat out of tissue. The important difference is that ice packs undergo phase change, allowing them to last longer at an even temperature, creating a more effective treatment. Most chemical or one-time-use packs and gel packs do not undergo phase change. They quickly loose their ability to transfer heat, limiting their effectiveness to reduce swelling. Their short duration of cold is not long enough to produce numbness, also reducing their ability to relieve pain.

Cold therapy should always be used as soon as possible after an injury occurs and continued for the following 48 hours at 15 to 20 minute intervals. Remember – if you hurt yourself, you need to ice!

This information is not intended as a substitute for professional medical treatment or consultation. Always consult with your physician in the event of a serious injury.

Woolly Bugger

Woolly Bugger

The Ubiquitous Woolly Bugger

by: Cameron Larsen

The ubiquitous Woolly Bugger, never quite spelled correctly to my eyes, appeals to the eyes of every gamefish imaginable. If I had one pattern to fish the rest of my life, no matter what the fish, no matter what the conditions, this would be it. Steelhead, Trout, Salmon, Bass, Shad, Pike, you name it, they will hit this pattern. And the best thing? Usually the fish will be bigger than average, the strikes harder than average, and the action better than average.

The origins of the Woolly Bugger can be traced back to the Old English pattern the Woolly Worm, which is also a very effective pattern. Most credit Russell Blessing with the actual invention of the Woolly Bugger in the early 1970’s in Pennsylvania. Although, Jack Dennis claims it is a variation of the Black Martinez popularized in the West. And still others claim it was originally a Bass imitation developed in the late 1800’s in Missouri. Whatever the origins the popularity of this pattern cannot be denied.

Besides being used for all game fish, the Bugger’s popularity can also be attributed to its versatility. It can be tied in almost every color imaginable. The most popular color’s are black, brown and olive, with purple and white right behind. But almost every color has been tied, and different color combinations are often used on the same fly. Another characteristic that makes the bugger so popular, is that you can’t fish it wrong. Okay if fish are slurping delicately on #24 Tri-co spinners, you don’t want to plunk a #6 Bugger right in the center of them. But if you are searching sub-surface for any kind of fish, in any kind of water, you could do a lot worse than selecting the woolly bugger.

What fish think they are hitting when they hit a Bugger is somewhat a mystery. To human’s eyes it could be a bait fish, a leech, a grub, a cricket, a stonefly, a dragonfly nymph, a damselfly nymph, the list is endless. And perhaps that is what makes it such a great all-purpose pattern. It is a nymph, a streamer, and an attractor all in one. We’ll let the fish classify it.

New twists on this pattern have even added to its effectiveness. Now usually tied with krystal flash or flashabou in its tail, for added attraction. A wire rib counter-wrapped through the hackle can also add flash and more importantly durability. It seems the history of the Bugger is still being written and while we all try ways to ‘improve’ this most popular pattern. Fish, that put in a whole lot less thought about this pattern will curse the day Mr. Blessing or whoever first tied one on a hook.

Lures Bass Can Hear

Lures Bass Can Hear

A Lure A Bass Can Hear

Heres a neat little trick to get a smallmouth bass's

attention in cloudy or dirty water.

This works with tube jigs. Buy some vinyl tubes.

Cut the tubes so they'll go over the hook. Put in different

sized magnums inside the tubes. These will act as rattles.

Glue the tube to the lead jig head with unclear epoxy glue.

Let harden then put a jig skit over the jig head very carefully.

You don't want to pull off the tube. Shake and its done.

Fillet Your Fish

Fillet Your Fish

Finally, You’ve Caught The Perfect Fish. Now, Do You Know How To Fillet Your Fish?

by: Catherine Kenyeres

You can’t be happier. You have finally caught the perfect fish. Do you know how to fillet your fish? Once you become an expert at fish filleting, you probably will be asked to fillet everyone else’s catch.

Firstly, get a good knife and a cutting board or hard surface and lay the fish down on it. You must cut the head of the fish off right to the rear of its gills. Secondly, holding the fish by its tail, take the knife with the blade pointing away from your body and toward where the head was; slice the body of the fish crosswise. The backbone of the fish can be used to direct the knife through.

Thirdly, take one half of the sliced fish and place the fish piece flesh side up. Holding the fish piece by the tail, place the knife between the skin and the flesh and run the knife down the length of the fish piece to remove the skin cutting in the direction of the tail to the head area.

Now, you have a perfectly filleted fish to fry.
