Striped Bass in the Bay of Chaleur

Far as I know, it is illegal to fish striped bass in the Bay of Chaleur. Striped bass are fish you can see at the bottom of the water outlets. They tell me they are a predator fish, and that they can eat salmon smolts. The Federal government has put a ban on fishing them. They thing is, is when they grow in numbers, they do pick on other species of fish. And, do they ever get big. We seen them in some warm water inlets at at least 3 to 4 feet long.  With special glasses and a beautiful sunny day, you can see them pretty well, lurking on the bottom of inlets on a warm sunny day.

Some can grow to 6.6 feet. The Federal government protects the species, as they are labelled as an endangered species.  People were saying that the Striped bass population is high in the Bay of Chaleur, and that maybe in certain areas the Federal Government should lift the ban. Hopefully the fisheries will weight in, and see if the numbers did increase. If so, we need to know what effect they do have on salmon populations, as the salmon is an important industry here in the North as well. Not only for tourism, but for guides, and outfitters.

In Jacquet River N.B., they do have a Salmon interpretation center. Here, the salmon come up to spawn in late July. There, you can get a tour of the salmon gated facility, where the salmon are locked in. They are allowed to go up a few at a time in order to spawn. This way, they are protected and monitored for study. It is a small but beautiful river.

Well, nothing new for now on the book front. I hope you all have a good day.  Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
