Caught this Bow at the buzzer tonight!
« on: Feb 22, 2018, 06:18 PM »
Went out in the ice late today for an hour in Moultonboro. Caught this nice Bow as we were about to head in. Weekend is off to a good start! Will post more pics as weekend goes on. Stay tuned, my friends!

I’m sure it was a blast pulling it in. It’s unfortunate that it was a salmon.  Hopefully the rest of your weekend is more fruitful.

This is just an opportunity to learn from a mistake with no harm done.

This happens every year. Now you’ll know for the next time.

The guys here will tell you, seems like every year somebody, proud as a peacock, brings there “rainbow”
To the board at the derby to be weighed in, only to walk away with a fine and a lesson learned

What is the fine for pulling up a salmon? Assuming it was definitely a salmon?

It was definitely a salmon. No doubt.

It is illegal in the state of NH to take a salmon out, and take photos during the closed season. It has to be immediately released.

Didn't see the pic but given the folks saying it was, it was.
Not sure what the price of a salmon fine is, but loss of fishing license for a year often accompanies fishing fines in NH.

 I hope it wasn't a salmon but if it was it was an honest mistake. I release everything I catch anyways so if indeed it was one the fish is free. I love to fish and always have a license in NH and in Mass. I obey all rules and it looked like a bow to me. If it was it was an honest mistake.

We are all capable of making a mistake. No problem on my end. Just one question: Where are you taking Elizabeth fishing?

 I am not taking her fishing but if I were to I would make sure the ice is very thin and I would let her go first.

Released but most likely dead now, I heard the camera flash kills them  ;D .. May want to check out a species chart before you keep fishing this weekend.

However to your defense NH has stocked salmon in 6 trap lakes and ponds not stated to have salmon and people would never think to check it at the hole just rip whatever is on the line out.. I have unintentionally pulled them out not thinking I would ever catch one in that body of water. But I am assuming this was a two trap big lake so not the case.
Big bait, big fish.

Honest mistake...I still contend we should be able to keep 2 salmon per ice season, but I'm sure it would be a logistical nightmare to track and keep others from abusing it. Would be nice though.

Give me a break camera flash kills them. Never heard of such a thing. I can see you busting the guys balls about it being a salmon but come on.

I think the only way to keep it honest would be to be able to purchase 1 sleeve of 2 salmon tags per season. Buy it if you want to keep them, dont if you dont. With that said, i know nothing about the salmon stock in NH and was just responding to how it might be possible.
Just add water.
