Just started fishing city water this year I have and intend to keep a 100% C&R rate on city waters.

Doesn't make any since to me not to pinch barbs on a C&R river....eatting a fish out of the waterford doesn't do much for me.

I haven't seen anything out of the way so far this year.....with 20 fishing days since Feb 1st. Handling and releasing of fish is a little rough at times but atleast they are going back. I haven't seen any one bonk a fish there yet but only the hard core guys are fishing at this time of year for the most part.

I've had a flick at the Gut and Rennie's so far in the city but fish the waterford normally. Had a go at Kelligrew's and Topsail beach outside st. john's.
