Commercial Fishing Nets

Recommended Posts

I went out to the weather buoy south of Port Colborne today because I saw a commercial fishing boat laying nets. I assumed its fishing finding equipment was far superior to mine. I assumed wrong, I didn't catch anything. In the past I've always seen fishing nets marked with a pole topped with a flag and floating buoys enabling boaters to easily see where the nets started and ended. This commercial fishing boat marked its nets with a yellow jerry can. It was impossible see from a distance, it was also impossible to see which direction the net was running.

Perch nets set on the bottom are the usual deal. Perch are in higher demand and price while walleyes caught at this water temperature spoil over night in the nets.

Thanks jimski2, are those perch nets just outside of Barcelona harbor ? (White buoys with black flags )

Yes we are... I'm glad I didn't renew my license.. but I guess even pleasure boaters are supposed to stay on our side
