  10. I haven't been on this site for awhile. I moved to Vancouver island over a year ago. Needless to say I've lost touch a little bit on what's going on in Alberta Life has been good for me out here. It has it challenges Trying to find new places to fish. For most people r friendly But when it comes to steelhead it like they have taken a oath To say nothing to a albertian. Needless to say I have put the Miles on but it is starting to reward me So if u guys r out this way drop me a line. Always open to fishing Garry

  13. 250 to 3000 % is a little low you would want at least 10% browns or 15 % is even better..........but some is better then none.

  15. I have both and i like both for different reasons.........any distant walking in take the pontton float tube and if close use the pontoon boat.......also i have a electric motor for the pontoon boat in case i have to use it.....the pontoon float tube is more comfortable
  16. Simon gagne......that is a name a few will reconize, i know Don Anderson knows who he is. Simon use to live in Red Deer in the 80's and he moved back to Quebec where he was guiding if i am not mistaken....he was a very talented angler

  18. I bought my first sonar in 1982 and all it was a a screen and a red light flashing henced called them flashers........i have been usuing a sonnar in a tube for probably 12 years plus.........over the years i have learnt that for a tube all u need is a cheap one like the one i have now which was like $129 at cnd tire.......i use it for finding the shelves and the depth of the lake...it is nice when u do mark fish on it but not the use for me.....the battery i use is a closed cell from battery world over by labatts brewery cost me $15 and lasted like 6 or 7 years and it is nice and light.......i feel naked if i don't have my sonnar on my tube....just my 2 cents
  19. I fish with either my sink 3 or sink 6 line and think that is most of the time sink 6 and i would think that is the reason i catch bigger fish......keeps it away from the smaller ones. I do use my sink 2 on occasion mostly when action is fierce close to the surface like good backswimmer action or when chromnoids r hatching....if i had one choice to have over any other and u r fishing in a tube it would be a sink 6.......sorry fellows just what works for me
  20. Sorry to seem like i am just blaming them with out any knowledge on what they r doing , but i have been trying to get them to do this project years ago and i am very aware of what they reactions on this project has been and i know that there r good wildlife officers and biologists out there.......on this project i really think that we have on indivual that is hammering it all.........just one mans opinion.........could be wrong
