    Re: someone caught a 50# wahoo in sd

    The warm water event you referenced was 2004, that crop of smolts that returned in 2008 (4 year cycle) was what closed the fishery. So, warm water bad for salmon

    That was also the year that produced an adult return of 55000+/- adults in 2008 and the closures of 2009-11.

    We all are more worried about water allocations, since that is the only thing we can (perhaps) influence.

    Take care, J,

    Normal sea churning lifts cold, nutrient-rich water from its depths to the surface, where it feeds copepods, which in turn feed the types of fish that salmon and steelhead eat to grow big and fat before they return to fresh water to spawn.


    Now an unusual blob of warm water that formed off of the Gulf of Alaska and another in the eastern Pacific have merged and inundated the West Coast of the United States and the coast of British Columbia. The warm water has less upwelling and fewer copepods.

    thanks for link, (was at 267, my bad) wasnt sure if anyone was actually going to write/report about it. Was sorta a texting rumor but no spot id, along with the huge pargo that got caught this s--t is crazy.

    when I have to call my kids out of water in February, after playing for 2 hours you know its warm.

    thanks for the link.

    Re: someone caught a 50# wahoo in sd

    Here is the internet story....The water was almost record breaking warm above normal. And continues to be well above normal. They were still getting Bluefin tuna in 63 degree water off San Diego a couple of weeks ago, and the water is still around that.http://www.petethomasoutdoors.com/20...ge-county.html
