I then store the fish in cold sea/river water before cleaning and then transferring to the cooler in the car at the end of the trip. Fish still tasted great.

I do the same thing. As I understand it, the fish have to be immersed in water to bleed out properly or the blood coagulates. I see way more people not bleeding their fish.

Now pinks. I agree, next year I'm putting them on ice ASAP. The water is way too warm to have them submersed for a day of fishing.

BTW, does cutting out it's gills bleed out as well as just tearing/cutting the gills and letting moving water through them?

While bottom fishing for smaller saltwater species (flounders, greenling, sea perch) from shore, I usually bleed my catch in a bucket of cold sea water which I then keep in the shade. After bleeding,  I place them in a portable cooler bag (with a shoulder strap), in which I also pack my bait and a few freezer packs frozen the night before. I tend to hike for a short distance between fishing spots so it's a convenient and easy way to transport my catch. I then clean my fish at the end of the trip and they still taste fine. For larger fish (like salmon), which I still have relatively less experience with, what I have done so far is dispatch and bleed the fish in water like what I have done with smaller fish. I then store the fish in cold sea/river water before cleaning and then transferring to the cooler in the car at the end of the trip. Fish still tasted great.

Bombing, attacks on a large group of people, etc.

Not shooting one guy, then heading to a second location to do a second attack. It's usally focused on one target, and that target is often a large group. Yes 911 had two targets, but that was a huge planned thing involving 20+ people.

I was talking to my father about this. He's in the American Military. And was in the Pentagon when the third plan hit it. There was a total of Four plans.
He has served in the air force  for nearly most of his life, he said if this was a terrorist attack, what happened tonight would be considered a soft target (anything that can't defend itself)

Wednesdays are busy on the Hill, traditionally its busiest day, when the House of Commons does not sit and political parties hold caucus meetings with their members of Parliament and Senators. Each major party meets in its own room in Centre Block.
Basically you have our entire government in one place at one time. Imagine if it had actually escalated, we have no B team. Our government is done.
Much like chamber of the Senate , which is kind of a scary thought.

Now this is what GRINDS MY GEARS.

I refuse to allow terrorists to scare me. That's their goal so screw 'em, they don't win over me.
The media has been trying to scare us for a long time with cholesterol, sodium, AIDS, SARS, wars, GMOs, ebola, evil gun advocates, school shootings and so on.
I barely batted an eyelash when I heard the news. Don't get me wrong a person died today and another injured. This is what they have done to me, I have been completely desensitized to tragedy.
Nothing short of 9/11 pt. 2 will get any real reaction out of me because thousands die, starve and are killed every day. We don't care until it's on our turf, the "not in my house" mentality.
Now the West coast libtards are loving the opportunity to crap on Harper for this too, as typical blog-educated are wont to do.
"If Harper wasn't in charge, *insert why the world would be perfect here*"
Nothing like unprovable speculation, in the face of a tragedy, to try to convince people your political affiliation is the correct one.
Kinda went off there.

In conclusion: @#% ISIS, the media, social media and these keyboard cowboy political pundits.
Don't get me wrong I am not a fan of Harper, lol. But I see Americans do the same thing with Obama.

Hi, the name is "Jeff"

I like:
 - quiet spots, even if I have to walk a long way
 - flyfishing, but I'll pull out the gear too when its suitable
 - tying my own flies

I don't like:
 - crowds, though the odd riverside conversation is nice
 - litter
 - getting skunked while others are hooking up

See you out there.

Thanks for the info guys. 

I am uneasy fishing on the east side with a novice, so will probably stay to the west.  However, I have never fished that side of the rivber.  Does anyone have or can they create a map highlighting where it is safe to park and not.  Not a biggie, I can figure it out, but it would be helpful.  I tried using street-view but no luck.


The no parking signs are clearly marked on the side of the road. Shouldn't be an issue seeing them although most guys seem to ignore them.
