Each day more grebe babies are being observed on their parents’ backs. We have received numerous updates from folks in our area who have developed an interest in these birds and their broods. The nesting colonies are still very active. Even though many young have already hatched and have left the colony with their folks, many more adults are sitting on eggs or building new nests. This makes monitoring these nest colonies a multi-dimensional challenge.
Giants from the Western states and our local drivers converged at the Quincy fairgrounds for the Dwarf Car Regionals on Friday and Saturday night. One of those quiet giants is Quincy’s own Chase Nieman who became a David among the Goliaths. Chase is in his second season as a competitor in the Dwarf car series. He is an example of growth from child of a racing family to a quiet man making his mark in their sport.
The skies were filled with the dust of three classes of Dwarf cars and the screams of their engines.
Michael CondonThere will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home. ~Roderick Haig-Brown, Fisherman's Spring, 1951
Question: I have been studying up on different methods of spear fishing while free diving and have read about the use of “glitter” as an attractant for bait fish. I have an idea to sprinkle glitter in the water so that when the bait fish come to investigate, the large game fish will follow and be caught as they attack the bait fish!
What are your views and the legal ramifications of this method? I understand chumming is not legal for taking game animals in our state, but the use of artificial lures is. With my idea the game fish would not be chummed by this method but instead just attracted by the collection of bait fish. If this method actually works, would it be legal?
I am not against golf, since I cannot but suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering trout …
Kokanee fishing at Bucks Lake is a bit slow right now. The fish that are being caught have been in deeper water and are a bit on the smaller side, according to Allan Bruzza of the Sportsmen’s Den on Highway 70 in East Quincy (283-2733).
Why is that? Your guess is as good as mine.
The only thing I can come up with is that the abundant cold water this year, and to some degree last year, has the fish more scattered throughout the lake.
