the original laker taker---my cousin and i will always fish this derby as long as they have it for the next number of years,we fish winni 3 days a year and catch and release 10 to 15 salmon,thats it for the year and thats the average for most sport fisherman on winni,the charter boats are the problem here for the drastic reduction in healthy salmon,over the last 6 years charter fishing has doubled and tripled on winni,the state needs to step in and make it two lines per boat,all salmon off spring are bought with our license money ,charter boats are making money off the fish we and the state provide for sport fishing not for profit on a DAILY basis ,thanks the original laker taker
Rick your comment:
"all salmon off spring are bought with our license money" shows how much you know about everything you say about guides, etc. with implied authority.
The NH Salmon come from NH Salmon, they are the cheapest fish that Fish and Game raise (statement direct from F and G biologist) for the states stocking program. All the eggs are taken from NH lakes and hatched in NH hatcheries where they live for approximately one year before being put into the lake. In the past they have maybe bought eggs but not in recent years.
I might add no eggs (or very, very few) were taken from Winni in 2009 (not positive on the year, but I have it and can look it up) due to poor condition of the Salmon, but were taken from other NH Salmon lakes instead.
So NH Salmon are a product if NH, the cost of raising them comes from license fees, but they doint buy them.
