Finally managed to scan some old pictures. I spent 8 years of my life in Canada. During which i managed some quality time of fishing in the lakes and rivers. I always preferred to use live bait - salmon and trout row for the Salmon and Trout, earthworms and corn for carp which both worked excellent.

The size of fish in cold waters are much smaller than the fish in tropical and warm waters. The cold water slows down their metabolism. So the fish take a lot longer to grow.

the common species I caught were -

Salmon - Chinook and Atlantic
Trout - Brown, Lake, Brook, Rainbow
Large and Smallmouth Bass
Carp
Perch, Sunfish and other smaller one
Catfish (below 1 kg)

Below are few pics of my catches, unfortunately I did not have a digi cam back in the days so I have limited pics :

A real blast from the past.

Great pictures. There is something so powerful and fast about a Salmon's form.

sorry its not live bait, We used to catch the Salmon in Autumn, when they start coming up the river to spawn. We used to bag the row of Salmon or trout - 2 to 3 eggs per bag.

Agree with you M'ken, your words and Keith's pics of the salmon brought back some sweet salmon memories :roll: the run they give after the hookup its like a cheetah of the water, very fast runner
OH GOD give me a rawas {threadhfin salmon} on my next cast -Amen :(
