weekly fishing photo

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: This Photo of the Week is dedicated to the Halibut Issue inspired by our Town Hall Meeting in Kitimat today.This is a photo of an 86lb Halibut was caught by 3 generations of the Losier family.  Roger Losier is captured in this photo with his son, Jacque and grandson, Colby in August 2009.  This is a proud Losier family moment!  Creating precious family moments such as this one will be compromised in the 2011 Fishing Season after July when the Recreation Season is predicted to be closed.  Recreation anglers will be required to lease allocation of a Commercial Halibut Allocation holder in order to fish for Halibut after the Recreation season closes.  I believe that preserving the rights of all Canadians to fish for Halibut to be able to create moments such as this one is very important. For more details, please read the Halibut Information at the end of this Fishing Report.

Kitimat River

Ariel Kuppers reports that the Kitimat River is iced up along the edges in the faster moving water and completely frozen over in the sections where the current is slower.  Ariel also reports -20 degree temperatures.  The only facts to report this week is that the Kitimat River is iced up and it is too cold to fish.
Douglas Channel

Dorothy from MK Bay reports cold temperatures and nasty winter conditions have discouraged even the Hard Core anglers such as Victor Lick.
Victor is as eager an angler as you will find in our area and he visited the marina and went home.

Special Report
Glen Kilcup reports that the Steelhead Rivers he has been fishing this week are iced up and the water and air temperatures have dropped.

Important Halibut Issue

I appeal to all Canadians to get involved in this Halibut Allocation Issue.  I can not believe that the Conservative Government is allowing the DFO Minister to promote this grossly unfair Halibut Policy.  Please read the Letter to the Editor and please write a Letter to the Prime Minister to instruct the DFO Minister to change this Halibut Allocation Policy in the interests of all Canadians.  The precedent that this Halibut Policy sets is absolutely wrong. 
I am in Edmonton Alberta writing this report and all the  Tackle/Hunting Dealers and all the Anglers I have spoken to about this Halibut Issue are irate about this unfair Halibut Policy.  Please join the fight of all Canadians to right the Injustice of the Halibut Allocation Policy before it infests itself in other species.
To the Editor
The stakes just got higher!  In Minister Shea's announcement Tuesday, DFO has initiated a pilot program which will require Recreational anglers to buy Allocation from one of the 436 Halibut Allocation Holders in order to fish for Halibut after we consume the 12% Allocation in 2011.  Halibut is a Canadian Common resource owned by the people of Canada.  DFO's 2011 Halibut policy that will require Canadians to buy Allocation from a Commercial Halibut Allocation Holder in order to fish for Halibut by we predict August 2011. This is wrong.  Every Canadian should be outraged!  
The Commercial sector has already begun lobbying for the same process (ITQ's) for crab and prawns and Fraser River Sockeye.  We predict all salmon species will be their next target.  Our worst fear is now a reality!
The Conservative Caucus met Feb. 11th to discuss this Halibut issue.  The Caucus gave DFO Minister Shea approval to proceed with privatizing Halibut, a Canadian Common Resource.  The Conservative Government has served the interests of 436 individuals and compromised the rights of all Canadians who wish to fish for Halibut.  This Government has also set the precedent for other species to follow.  The potential of where this precedent will go is absolutely scary.
One assumption that the Conservative Government would have made in order to proceed with this policy is that the "Silent Majority" of Canadians will remain silent as we have been for 8 years.  We must send a clear message to Ottawa, "We are mad as Hell and we are NOT going to take it anymore!"
We must now increase our level of commitment and determination to rise to the challenge that Minister Shea's announcement has just presented.
The Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force has developed a winning Strategy ("Power of One" at Individual,Group, City Council and Union levels) and created the "Tools" to spread the word of this disgraceful Halibut policy to everyone in our Contact Lists.   We can also spread the word to all Canadians in our address books. Many Kitimat Residents have friends, relatives and contacts through out Canada.  Please contact them now before it is too late!  Task Members have forwarded this Halibut Information to everyone in their Contact List with excellent results.  If everyone does their small part collectively we can make a Big Difference.  The time is now. Please contact any of the Kitimat Halibut Task Force Members if you require any information to send to your contacts.
Working in concert with the BC Sport Fishing Coalition, the voice of Kitimat and our neighbors in the North West will and must be heard in amongst the voice of all Canadians loud and clear.
"The Conservative Government will be held accountable for this Halibut Policy on Election Day".
All Canadians who want to stand up for their rights and the rights of our Children and Grand Children to fish for Halibut please use the information provided by the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force and write a Letter to the Prime Minister to stop this insanity in the interests of all Canadians.
Please visit the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force Website for samples letters. or the SFI website .  DFO Minister Shea's announcement opens the door that puts Crab, Prawns and all Salmon at risk for the same type of mismanagement.
I urge all Canadians to send a clear message to the Conservative Government.  We will not vote for the Conservative Government unless they do not change this grossly unfair Halibut Policy.
