John,
As chairman of both the Eastern Regional fisheries Board and the I.F.P.A.C
I would like to know what your veiws are on the weighting of pike by the (GILLS) that happend at a recent juveniles competition organised by the Eastern Fishery Board on Lough Muckno. It was financed by C;Blayney Town Council, the CASA. and supported by the C;Blayney Angling Club.

One would think that with the E.R.F.B. and the C.B.A.C. involved that they would have had weight slings on hand for to weight pike of up to 12lbs.

There is a photo of the 12lbs pike been weighted by the (GILLS) on there web site castleblayney.ie in news tread.

I think you'll find the fish is being weighed under the chin,and not by the gills,the gills would not support the weight of the fish. Rolling Eyes

Joe,

In any dealings with the Castleblaney Club I personally have had I always found them to be pro conservation and pro pike. I would be surprised if the club members would stand by and allow that type of photo or that type of weighing method to be used. Are you sure the photo came from that particular competition?

Well it sure show the little intelligence that you have, it has taking you 10 months to fine the photo on the web site,and then to make a stupid reply about the way the fish is weighed, Do you Condone this way of weighting fish?

To weight a fish (12lbs or 1/2oz) by either the Gills or by (your quote) the chin is going against all rules of fish weighting.

So clean up your act, get yourself a weight sling.

David,
If you read the post again you will see the mentioned club only supported it,
Again it is 10 months from I made the post regarding the way the fish was weighted, and the inscription details has been removed from the photo.

Only realised the date Rolling Eyes . I did think though that there was actually a recent cross border event in Castleblaney.

Oh i seen it at the time ok joe,just chose to say nothing.
And you are entitled to say it was a stupid remark,but its not,because it is actually weighing(without a T)by the chin,and no i don't condone it,NOW THAT WAS A STUPID REMARK. Wink
