If most of you are like me, you are interested in having the lates and best technology that is available. Am I right? OK, read on as this article my change some of your thinking when it comes to fishing and catch and release. There have been some biologists studying different species and have come up with some pretty interesting assumptions to prudent questions. So let us take a look at their findings.
Dose fishing pressure make fish more difficult to catch? (Rainbow Trout)
Test setup was this: three lakes were chosen and net sample was taken for each and the fisher were tagged and released
Three anglers were setup with the same gear
First lake was fished everyday for fours hours for thirty days and the trout were released within the hour - result were, first five days catch rate was 16 trout per day however the catch rate declined rapidly to 5 trout per day by day 15. The other two lakes were fished once for one hour. So you can see that the heavier fished lake produced less catch rate. So what can you do to change your catch rate with smart fish? Change the bait!!!!!
Are your chances of fishing success better in a lake that contains a lot of fish or fewer fish?(Walleye)
This study was done on Oneida Lake in New York and on 215 lakes across Ontario. Their findings here delete with not only fish population but also growth rate and abundance of prey. In the study in New York your catch is greater when the prey abundance is lower. In Ontario it also had to with prey but with the added twist that 60 of the lakes had no ciscoes but had yellow perch the other 155 had both prey. So what to do, fish lakes with low population of prey but with ciscoes and lower population of Walleye will produce trophy Walleye.
So that is how science and technology put together can solve your catch rate.
Lets go fishing,
