And lastly, the good old flasher/hoochie combo has been catching mostly Bull Trout, but still manage a few Rainbows on these also. Favorite depths have been 75 feet, 100 feet, and 120 feet. We did have some great days with over 10 fish to the boat. It just seems like the fish put on their ‘feed bags’ every once in a while. So, you just have to be out there. December saw similar fishing to the previous months. However, the last couple weeks have produced some big fish for us. So, hopefully the winter feeding will continue. Rainbows up to 17 Lbs and Bull Trout up to 12 Lbs have been caught lately. Even a few bigger fish have been hooked, but seem to break the line or spit the hook. We’re also preparing for the Family Day weekend fishing derby coming up in February. Lots of great prizes this year. ($30,000 worth) Should be a fun weekend — Feb. 8-10 at www.ctrcanadaderby.comNote: Reel Adventures Charters do have boats available for this derby still, as well as tickets for the derby if anyone is interested. What are they biting on?? Looking forward to January’s fishing, as this is usually the month of our biggest fish of the year. We had some slower days with only a couple fish coming to the boat, however on a few of those slow days the couple fish we caught just happened to be the biggest fish of the week. So, we were rewarded for our patience. Tight lines………………………… Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Charters Nelson B.C 250-505-4963 www.reeladventuresfishing.com The bite has been inconsistent, so we have been going through the tackle box each day. Just have to put your time in. But, when the bite has been on, we have been catching on: bucktail flies favorite colors are lucky numbers 201, 210, 214, 215, and 228. Also, Lyman plugs have been working both on the surface and on the downriggers. Lucky Lymans have been #10, 16, 55, 69, and 100. By Kerry Reed, Reel Adventures ChartersHe’s back . . . and ready to ring in the New Year with some “take it to the bank” tips on fishing on Kootenay Lake. That’s Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Charters with all the information to land the big one.Kootenay Lake: That pretty much covers the tackle box. Bill Norman lures have also been dragged lately. Time to slow down your presentation with these lures, but sometimes that’s what the fish want. This is important as the water temperature gets colder.
-30- FLAVIEN PRAT, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “I had a good trip. She was relaxed going down the backside. But, when a horse come up on her outside (Run Like the Boss with Joe Talamo up), she grabbed the bit and was a little bit aggressive after that. I think it was just because she is a ton of horse and she doesn’t know much yet. She’s pretty impressive.“Peter told me to ride her with confidence and put her where she’s comfortable.” JOCKEY QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Mike Burns; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland. PETER EURTON, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER, AND CHEEKABOO, THIRD: “I never expect anything (when asked if Pacific Heat’s performance exceeded his expectations). The way she was training, it wasn’t surprising because if you would have seen her work in the morning, it was amazing. Her confidence level’s been up and she looks great. Her weight looks good.“The biggest question to me was not the turf but whether she could get two turns and there was no question today. Flavien said she’s a little aggressive and I think in time she’ll learn how to pace herself.”And Cheekaboo running third, earning $22,000: “She paid for the supplemental nomination ($25,000), so that was good.” JOE CIAGLIA, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “To be honest, I wasn’t looking at Pacific Heat. I thought she had it pretty easy. I was yelling for Cheekaboo (his other horse) to get up for second. It was a great thrill to have the two run together. I’m glad she’s back.(On whether he was surprised she ran so dominant first time on turf) “She’s basically bred for turf. We have a lot of Unusual Heats and they’ve done extremely well on turf, as well as going long. It was a surprise she ran good on the dirt and we had to stick with it because she was doing well on it. But we knew our long-term goal was to run on grass.”(On her form in this race compared to others): “Pretty much like the others. She took the lead and went for home and relaxed. Her one bad race, she had a bit of an ulcer in her throat and so she lost air coming down the stretch. This was a blessing. We were concerned if this was going to happen again, so we’re very, very pleased.” TRAINER QUOTES

New Delhi: Emphasising that India has a huge potential in improving the tourism sector, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to the citizens to visit at least 15 tourist destinations in the country by 2022.Addressing the country from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 73rd Independence Day, Modi said: “India has so much to offer. I know people travel abroad for holidays. But can we think of visiting at least 15 tourist destinations across India before 2022, when we mark 75 years of freedom?”Modi said that he was aware that there were many tourist destinations which do not have hotels or other infrastructures. “But visiting such places will boost tourism in these areas and automatically lead to better facilities,” he added.

Sanaa: An explosion near two schools in the rebel-held Yemeni capital killed 14 children and wounded 16, the UN said Tuesday, but the cause of the weekend blast remains unclear. Most of the child casualties in the city’s Saewan district were girls under the age of nine, according to statements by both the UN children’s fund (UNICEF) and the UN special envoy for Yemen. Yemen’s Huthi rebels have accused a Saudi-led military coalition backing the government of carrying out an air strike. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US The coalition denied conducting any air raids on the capital on Sunday. “A blast in Sanaa this week killed 14 children and critically injured 16. This is what UNICEF was able to verify, with the actual number of children killed and injured likely to increase,” said UNICEF’s Middle East and North Africa director, Geert Cappelaere. “It was almost lunchtime and students were in class. The blast shattered the windows and unleashed a burst of shrapnel and broken glass into the classrooms.” Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls The United Nations and international aid groups have called for an investigation into the Sunday explosion but have not apportioned blame. The World Health Organization estimates nearly 10,000 Yemenis have been killed since 2015, when Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened to prevent the defeat of the government in the face of a rebel offensive. Human rights groups say the real death toll is several times higher. The conflict has pushed millions of Yemenis to the brink of mass starvation, in what the UN has called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Both sides stand accused of actions that could amount to war crimes. The coalition has been blacklisted by the UN for the killing of children. Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse the Huthis of using civilians as human shields in densely populated areas.
