Robbie, Thanks for your infor.

If everything is secret, why should this website be exist?
Should DFO shut down this web due to people release sensetive information?

Click Burncoat Head, use the next day Tides for approx start on incoming tide for Stewiacke, add 30-45 mins to St Andrews, and 1- 1.5 for start at end of Gays river.

Start of Tide today in Stewiacke approx 1:30 pm give or take 15 mins.

Tides are starting to get higher with each tide as we get closer to the new moon on Friday.

Action should be pickin up as the bass move in the rivers with the tides and closer to spawnin soon.

Anyone get a temp in the last day or so or a temp today in the Stewiacke

Had that happen to me on the Shubie yesterday, ended up being eels trying to steal my bait. It felt like a nice hit every 5 to 10 minutes, and could never get them hooked. When I did hook one it was an eel, and other times they'd stay on the line long enough for me to bring it to shore then fall off. Damn eels.

Those eels leave some nasty slim on your hands if you handle them.

Yup. Gotta hate the "Snot Snakes". :wacko: Dont ya love the way they curl up your line; leaving that "snot" that no fish will go near afterwards?

By the way, you can strip the "snot" off them, pretty quickly, with old newspaper. Just make sure to carry it out with you. Might come in handy for anyone interested in keeping them. Why...I can't imagine. :blink:

We fished the shubie near the highway construction on Wednesday morning. I have no idea why a striper would take a piece of cut bait when there were so many gaspereau in the river they were running into the banks. The guy next to me would simply dip some with his net to rebait his hooks with live gaspereau. In the last week every Striper I heard taken was bloated with food.

There were lots of eels, unlike previous commenters, I hope to catch eels, need a dozen or so more for my smoker. If you want to give them away, I will take them!

If you want to control an eel, bring a rag or cotton glove, they may bite ( probably not) but they have tiny teeth, like coarse sandpaper, Throw them back if you don't want them. If you want to keep them, grab them by the head a wack the end of their tails on something hard, that will stun them. They are a delicacy, anyone who has ever tried them, loves them, smoked eel in sushi are called unagi. Smoked eel sells for upwards of $50 per pound, but good luck finding it.

Most people are revolted at the thought that they look like snakes. Some of our favorite foods are not that pretty, my grandson calls lobster " bugs" but loves to eat them.

For those adventurous enough to try them: stun them, gut them, let them soak in a salt brine for a few hours to cut the slime, nail the head to a post and skin the eel, then prepare as any fish, fried or other, once you try them you will never throw away another eel
