They closed down another good Walleye lake in our part of the woods. Moose lake, no shortage of Walleye their but another well thought out plan by the lack of management team in Alberta. Last year we lost Marie, this year Moose, don't want to get going on it this morning.

 I'm worn out complaining about the Ab govt
  lack of programs ...I keep promoting moving to
 Sask.....just tough to pick a spot ....
  Now my wife is in a constant harangue about
  the govt and the health industry .
  I understand the concept of " the Kings deer "
     the robber barons ...I was raised in that environment .
    I hate to think I'll be going out that way ...

Interesting W101,  with that saying. My great Grandfather came to Canada (from Scotland) because of the "Kings Deer" he found new freedom here for himself, my Grandfather and Father. Now we seem to be back to the jolly old England rules of, everything belongs to the "Shinny Prince" and his court. The "Kings Deer" has found it's way to Canada.  :-\

Do you think that the 0 limit on pike was the right call ?

Well since I don't keep/eat pike I hadn't noticed the 0 limit.Went back and had a look at the regs and holy smokes there sure are a lot of lakes with 0 limit on pike.
That will P a lot of people off I'm sure.I can't see having a limit of one pike hurting anything but hey we're dealing with the Dippers here. ::)

   I'm looking forward to catching a few walleye but the 0 pike limit was a little disappointing . I'm normally just a trout fisherman but was planning giving and Gregg and Jarvis a try with my fly rod this year . My buddies were really choked about Winefred , Kirby and Grist lake being shut down with 0 pike limits .

No mention of Prussian Carp limits , I'm assured
 by my inside source that they taste every bit as good
  as Tilapia...I'm no further ahead  ?
  If I drive 3.5 hours ,I can keep one walleye , no pike .
   I'm excited .

For this particular lake perhaps a short term moratorium is in order, until the walleye are gone. After that I would think they would reopen it with a small limit or shortened season.

Interesting , fished it maybe a handful of times on the ice and off the shore . Caught a few pike , seemed to have the whole lake to myself while ice fishing.

The Water there is very cold and clear so not all that productive. Hence, can't support high walleye and pike numbers but sure is a beautiful place to fish. This is why they have given up on the walleye and are now fishing them out in the hopes that the pike will recover some.
