首先,我想提醒大家下周就是安省的加拿大居民免牌钓鱼周。20157412日(周六上午12:01分至周日晚间11:59分)期间,加拿大居民都可在安省免牌垂钓。

I like to remind everyone that this coming week is a Canadian Resident fishing license-free period in Ontario. It is commencing on July 4-12, 2015 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday).

 

下面就让我们来了解一下不同的垂钓方式及其规则:

Let us get to know about the different modes of fishing and their rules:

 

1)特许渔船垂钓

1) Chartered Boat Fishing –

实际上这是在五大湖区之一上得以行驶其渔船和雇佣钓鱼向导的机会。就像任何事物一样,在向导带领下会是钓鱼的最轻松的方式,因为向导会打点好一切。垂钓客无需准备渔具、钓鱼牌照、诱饵或鱼饵。

This is the employment of a guide and his/her boat on a chartered trip to one of the Great Lakes. A most relaxing way to fish as everything is taken care of by the guides. There is no concern for fishing gears, licenses, baits or lures.

此类垂钓之旅的费用通常为半天$350-550元。向导都拥有丰富经验,并掌握鲑鱼、鳟鱼和梭鱼鱼群的最新信息。你可以约上四五个好友一同出行,通过抽签决定你们的钓鱼顺序。在渔船利用声呐探测下方鱼群后,船上五到六根钓竿便会放线“下饵”。

A typical trip will cost $350-550 for half a day. The guides are experienced and they have the most up-to-date information on schools of Salmon, trout, and pickerel. Get 4-5 friends together and draw lots on the order of fishing. 5-6 fishing rods and lines are “trolled” behind the boat with the sonar monitoring the school of fish beneath.

人工诱饵会以合适深度下到鱼群前方,不久后就会有鱼上钩。这时排到顺序的垂钓客只需提杆收线制服上钩的鱼,并保持钓竿倾斜,然后很快就可以用抄网捞起一条重达945磅的鱼。在拍过照片后,你可以将鱼带回家也可以将其放生。

An artificial lure is trolled in front of the fishes in the right depth and before long a fish is hooked. The scheduled angler picks up the rod and fights the hooked fish by reeling in the line and keeping the rod tip up. Before long, a fish weighing from 9 to 45 lbs will be landed using a net. Pictures are taken and fish are taken home or released.

特许渔船的鱼篓限制和安省自然资源厅每年公布的管理规则的适用于省内20个渔业管理区域。来自五大湖区的大多数鲑鱼和鳟鱼因为污染太严重而不宜大量食用。相比之下梭鱼更适合适量多吃一点。对此可参照自然资源厅发布的“安省吃鱼”指引。

Creel limits are as stipulated by rules and regulations published by the Ministry of Natural Resources for one of applicable 20 zones each year. Most salmon and trout from the great Lakes are too polluted to eat in large quantities. Pickerels are more acceptable for consumption in reasonable portions. Follow the “Eating Ontario Fish” guide also published by the Ministry.

 

这种垂钓方式非常适合在钓上大鱼时拍照留念。但是,垂钓客也要做好因五大湖区突然风大浪急而导致行程变得异常艰辛的准备。在采用这种垂钓方式时,垂钓客不必寻找和检查鱼饵,也无需运用引诱技巧。这完全是一项只注重结果的活动。这种垂钓之旅人人都该享受一到两次,并且很适合招待来自海外的朋友。

This kind of fishing is great for picture taking for memory retention as the fish caught are fairly large. However, be prepared for very rough rides as the waves are huge when the wind picks up in the Great Lakes at a moment’s notice. In this fishing mode, the angler does not get to find and check out the lures needed and exercise the enticement techniques. This is simply a result oriented exercise. This is an activity that one should take a visiting friend from overseas to experience after enjoying it once or twice themselves.

 

2)池塘垂钓

2) Pond Fishing –

这其中包括商业池塘垂钓和私人池塘垂钓。商业池塘垂钓通常涉及鳟鱼养殖场,而那里养殖的鱼亦会用于销售。垂钓客进入养鱼场时需要缴纳几元钱固定费用,你可以携带自己的渔具或是低价租用鱼场的渔具。在通常情况下,尺寸小于约12英寸的鱼是“免费”的(但钓上来的鱼基本没有这种尺寸)。而超过这个尺寸的任何鱼类都会按照每英寸尺寸收费。

This can be commercial pond fishing or private pond fishing. Commercial pond fishing involves mostly trout farms where fishes are also raised for sale. A flat fee of a few dollars is charged for entry into the fish farm. You can bring your own fishing gear or rent theirs for a small fee. Typically, any fish caught below around 12 inches are “free” (but none of that size can be caught). Anything over that size is charged by the inch.

在我两个孩子分别为3岁和4岁大时,我曾带他们去商业池塘垂钓,结果我一整天都在帮他们往鱼钩上挂虫饵,最终我带着一堆以和超市同样价钱“购买”的鱼回到了家!

I recall taking my kids there when they were 3 and 4 years old and I ended up putting worms on their hooks all day and then got home with my “purchased” fishes at a price one would pay at the supermarket!

如果你很幸运地拥有在农村有养鱼塘的朋友,并获邀前去垂钓,那你可能会钓到大嘴鲈鱼和鳟鱼。

If you are lucky to have friends who have farm ponds in rural areas and get invited to fish there, you will get to catch Large- mouth Bass as well as trout.

在私人土地上进行池塘垂钓时,无需遵守垂钓规章制度。池塘垂钓全年都可进行,只要主人允许或是你的荷包负担得起,你想带多少鱼回家都可以。除此之外,安省还有一些类似高尔夫俱乐部的私人垂钓俱乐部,但它们都有会员资格限制和俱乐部章程。

In pond fishing on private land, the fishing rules and regulations do not apply. Every day of the year is open season for this kind of fishing. Take as many fishes home as long as your host will allow or your wallet can afford. There are also private fishing clubs that works like a golf club and they have limits for members and club regulations.

在下一篇文章中,我们将探讨岸边垂钓和船上垂钓,以及每个月最有可能在安省捕获和食用的不同鱼种。

Next time, we will talk about the Shore fishing and Boat fishing and different fish species we are most likely to catch and eat in Ontario for every month of the year.
