Yep, not like it's proven smallmouth return to their beds after being released and there isn't much science showing spawn angling has a direct impact. Every female pulled out of the water and culled any time of the year technically has a heavier impact than pulling a male from a bed for 5 minutes.

I was counting down the days to this foolishness :). Cute.

To say they're in the middle of spawn is silly, it's still early and a lot of the water ways are still below bedding temperatures. A lot of the bass are moving in behind the shad and gaspereau feeding, putting on weight before they bed down "pre-spawn mode". You make a good point that it's bad for the fish to pull them off their beds, I agree. Don't go insinuating that's what people are intending to do though, not fair to the people whom aren't and it's disrespectful. If I were you I'd be more concerned about the people culling them.

 Usually it is just the male who guards the nest and the fry will literally swim into his mouth to be protected

with any sign of danger, well what happens to those fry while that male is busy trying to get off the lure while

your fighting him.....Doesn't take a Rocket Scientist  to figure out will be going on if that nest is left unprotected.

 As for targeting the fish some people and there are a lot of them out there who couldn't normally catch a fish

unless they are taking advantage of a Species at a vunerable time like Spawning time.

 

 I am talking about the people who are specifically targeting them during spawning mode.....Geeeez like I said earlier some

Fishing Zones it is taboo to even have lures or baits for Bass until after the Bass Spawning period is over in your possession.

 

 A Bass whether it is Female or Male always returns to it's Bed to protect it  but what I am saying is what damage there is to the

young while their not there but of course the Bob Izumi  WANNA BE says what I am is saying is foolishness....YEAH RIGHT. LOL.

 

:D Cute

:). The insults cometh. Nothing in this topic indicated catching bedding bass but that certainly didn't stop you from inferring people were and then suggest the harm it was causing. Again, not that I feel the issue is one that plays a large ecological impact compared to a lot of other practices. Fight the bass quickly and return it, the impact is minimal in the grand scheme.

But that's okay, we all know dissenting opinions are shunned by you. Not news.

For the record, your attitude is the foolishness.

If it was taboo here there would be regulation in place to go along with that, but there isn't. Temperatures in most spots are still below 50's or just at 50. It's not bedding time. But what it is, bob, is for the kids. FOR THE KIDS BOB.




FOR THE KIDS DOWNRIGGING 6 FEET APART IN OVER 300 BOATS BOB. YOU SHOULD SEE THEIR SMILES. I bet if you did you wouldn't be so bitter about everything.

The way you act is the way I will treat you.
Cheers.

 Give me a break....Your talking about a Province that treats a Sports Fish like Muskies worse then a coarse fish.

 Even Smallmouth Bass aren't Native to New Brunswick.

 How I act and treat people who respect a Fishery and how I respect people who are willing to share fishing spots

and fishing techniques will probably only change when I am cremated and buried 3 ft under the ground.

 I realize that no matter what is said or done there will be people who can't see past the end of their noses.

 

 I also don't think I will lose too much sleep over how you are going to treat me in the future bnoseworthy......ROTFLMAO.

I'd be much more concerned with the "bring a bucket and fill it" mentality than a few bass pulled off their spawning point and returned. If there's one thing the maritimes have, it's way too many people that abuse fishing seasons/bag limits. In fact I saw someone stuffing a nice sized smallmouth into their trunk on Victoria Day weekend, but wasn't able to make a call for several hours and figured they were long gone by that point - not that DNR would show up on a holiday weekend for one bass anyway.

Fishing smallmouth during spawning hasn't seemed to make any impact in any waters I've fished them in NB or NS, and at least NB hasn't went like Nova Scotia and decided to up the limit to 25 smallmouth per day in part of the province. Tournament fishing in NS starts during/before spawning would occur.

Bob tends to do that quite often, actually. Welcome to NBFISHING!

But really bob, with 9895823598340593845 KM of water and lakes in our province, youll have plenty of SMB to keep the smiles on kids faces, long long after we cause the population to drop while fishing during spawn.

You realize most fish you kill by mistake, would probably result in more fish being produced correct? Its all the same game.


Good luck have fun on the water, sons.

I don't want you to lose any sleep. I seriously don't care, but you say people are disrespcting fisheries, how so? How has fishing bass in spawning seriously impacted our fisheries? Your assumptions are benine and your attitude disgusting.

You made a good point on over fighting fish and I gave you that, but you came on here with the clear intention of instigation. No body stops and takes 15 pictures with these fish. What we do is hi-def videos and we take a quick pose mid video, and take a still frame. That takes 3 seconds.

Posting pics and sharing all of your spots has way more of a negative impact on fisheries than holding a fish for half a minute to a minute. Cause once you share those spots publicly you don't know who's going to show up.

How you over reacted to this was not only immature but also disrespectful. We all seldomly retain a fish, and never a bass. Take a minute and worry about the people on here who want to cull them. They're the problem.

We're all entitled to our own opinions but don't go acting like you're right, cause there's always more than one way to skin a cat.

Like I said, you made a valid point with over fighting fish and people taking pictures. But don't go assuming that's what's happening, you literally don't know that unless someone stated were fighting over fighting a bass and taking a dozen pictures. You do know what they say about assuming right?

Tight lines everybody.

 Your right by saying each to their own........I personally do not fish for Smallmouth Bass until after the Spawning

is over and the Season is totally open and then I only practice Catch and Release.....Pictures aren't a big deal

to me.

 Doesn't take very long for predatory fish or even crayfish to feed heavily on an unprotected Spawning Bed

while that Bass is on your Fishing Line..

 I have never left a Smallmouth Bass's Nest unprotected in my life by targeting Smallmouth Bass when they are

Spawning and never will.

 Just my personal way of myself doing my part not to damage a Fishery in the slightest way.

You're stretching real far bob real far, you figure that using your downrigger and pulling fish up 200 yards and blowing their bladder doesn't cause any harm? Get over yourself.And picking fights in an overly friendly PICTURE thread. My gosh, you're how old now? and still picking fights with people one third your age, get over yourself.

 

And I'm also quite sure the crayfish problem in the canaan is the least of the issues.

If you dislike the pictures don't look at them, or better yet report them and see how fast youll be shut up by the mods as nothing in the slightest has been done wrong.

Downrigger, Blown bladder master should be your name. I can't even begin to imagine how many fish you've killed in your lifetime, living in the generation that caused most of these issues, yet still have the nerve to come here and call someone putting a whole lot of effort into bringing this site, and fishing in general back into some amazing footage, you should truly be ashamed.

I know you don't care what I have to say, and frankly after reading the nonsense that has come from you in the past, I wish you would just sway far far away from anything this site has to offer or its intentions, as we've seen what you want.


I remember an old fellow a year ago telling me not to complain about things like this, since its fish porn and all should be allowed, take your own advice and go fly a kite, myself and the majority of others would not miss your presence.

 Quite the exaggerations about bringing fish up from 200 yards.....I don't think too many Downriggers will hold

over 70 yards of steel cable.

 You are also ignorant to the fact that Lake Trout can purge their air bladders to equalize their internal air pressure

so no harm done when they are released.

 Read and learn about something before you shoot your mouth off about something you know nothing about.....Now

that shows immaturity..

 

 You can't even understand an English statement......Pictures of fish are no big deal to me I don't go out of my way

to take them and don't care if anybody else wants to do that.

 Fishing for Spawning Bass is like fishing in a Fish Bowl to me and there is no challenge to that and I personally think

it is wrong like I said above and I am and always will be entitled to my opinion.

 

 I don't care what you or anybody else thinks of me and never will;;;;;;;Just in case you didn't know it is legal to keep

fish to eat if the Season is open and they meet the size requirements and your not over your possession limit, so yes

I have killed fish in the past and not at all ashamed of being a Legal Fisherman and an Ethical One Too in my opinion

once again!!!

Right now respecting the spawning period (which varies in different areas) is a personal choice in New Brunswick. No bass tournaments are allowed during this period for a reason. Yes the fishing is great, but what Downnrigger Bob says also has merit. Everyone is entitled to an opinion so personal attacks aren't necessary and quickly escalate. Lets keep the fun in fishing.

Yet fishing bedding bass (something that wasnt even happening yet on the rivers fished in probably most of the photos in this thread when the photos were taken) is of great ethical concern to you. So much so that you need to be insulting about it. Everyone has their own ethics, but if you're going to play the legality card then please keep in mind that fishing bass is open during June. By law.

If you think culling a female doesn't impact larger than a 5 minute fight with a male you need to give your head a shake.

Good luck sight fishing the tea coloured water I fish every week.
