hello fellow freedivers and hunters, first of all i,m jealous of all you divers that are near the ocean and can dive anytime:i dove and fished the med. for years (totally addicted to spearfishing!)Now because i live in canadas north i do things different.The area i fish is what remains of the albian sea it consists of hundreds of clear ,cold lakes in northeastern alberta accessable only by floatplane or atv. last weekend was like any other for me during the summer(may-oct.)First i pack my gear into a backpack,my 90cm gun&weightbelt are mounted on my motorcyle(KTMLC4 RALLY)everything loaded into my truck, then drive 50km to the unload zone.150km of sand dunes further north gets me to my favourite lakes. a bit about the lakes,good viz 5-10 mtrs. (good for fresh anyway!)with bottom mostly rocks,sand&,weedbeds.I geared up and swam out to where the dropoffs hide walleye(to 8kgs.)and northern pike(to 20kgs.)these bigger fish are not uncommon but aren,t as good to eat as the smaller ones(2-4kgs.)i photograph the bigger fish (tried to carry 7kgs..fish home once but it got beat to hell )after about an hour i had seen 8-9 decent walleyes,and two loons(waterfowl,comical underwater they followed me everywhere!)i was getting cold so nailed next walleye that came to close,great shore lunch!the riding is awesome,the diving is the best freshwater anywhere,things could be worse!!
