6th October 2001 Catfish Stocking

As some of you will know the Match pit is licensed to hold 20 catfish until the MAFF ILFA scheme.  Last year 7 were stocked at about 3lb and now an additional 13 licensed fish have been introduced.  These fish are between 4 and 5 1/2 pounds.

After spending 4 hours netting a lake the cats are driven to the weigh station by a snowmobile.  Never seen one up close before, only has a 1500 cc engine.

Bags of Cats waiting to be stocked on the Match Pit.  Just like buying goldfish really.  If you put them in a tank all together they chew each others whiskers off!

One of the new recruits.    5lb 4oz. Should make 10lb in two years.  Two more stocking due in October.

Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time
