Big fish nets

Klause's Avatar Oct 17, 2020 | 20:54 1 So we stocked our dugout this past spring. Now we want to harvest. Where's a good source of large nets for harvesting dish out of dugouts? 80' wide 200 long. Reply With Quote

Oct 17, 2020 | 21:13 3 Shallow dug-outs have a skim of ice on them here. Are the deep ones still open?

I could lend you my banana hammock.

Is there any commercial fishing in Sask at all, probably the wrong province to be looking for a large fishing net. Wouldn't be a problem in Manitoba. Reply With Quote

    Oct 18, 2020 | 06:57 10 I’d check back where ever you purchased the fish from in the spring. The longer you can leave them and the colder the water is helped get rid of the muddy taste but can quickly become one cold, wet project. Reply With Quote

    Ya, I think Klause was looking for a real fish net.

    He can get a minnow trap anywhere... Reply With Quote
    Oct 18, 2020 | 07:32 12 Halfords in Edmonton used to have nets. Oh I remember that job well. One of the more brutal tasks in the world. They should have a show about it. Call it dugout harvest. Show the blue numb fingers trying to remove slippery, ice cold fish from twisted tangled fast freezing nets. Then show the same fingers trying to unravel frozen nets from the scattered pile at the fishers feet. Might need to be a silent movie. Cuz the cussing will be unreal!

    Rainbows I presume Klause? Good luck. There do look to be a few days near zero coming up. Hope they’re right. Reply With Quote

    I went on a fish counting exercise with some government biologists one time. They shock the fish and they float to the top stunned for about half an hour then wake up. I'm sure it was a special generator they used but kinda looked like a welder and they put the cables in the water. Reply With Quote

    A lot of people over in the Annaheim, Lake Lenore area net fish every year. You’re not far away you must have some contacts over there. Reply With Quote

    Brook IEW don’t do to well in stagnant water bodies. But try the fish culture station at Fort Quappelle.. Reply With Quote
