Rainbow Trout & Sound Blasting

//Rainbow Trout & Sound Blasting

Rainbow Trout & Sound Blasting

Recently I spent a week squatchin’ with my wife in Colorado. Nothing squatch related was noted but we did enjoy the trout fishing and beautiful scenery. Ok, so actually it was my wife who caught the two trout.  I did pan fry the 10 inch Rainbow Trout and it was the first time my wife had tasted this Western delicacy.

I am in the process of writing a series on sound blasting equipment so while in Colorado tried out some low volume playback of pre-recorded coyote calls.

The picture above shows the small gulch where the coyote den was located near our campground.

This lone Coyote call immediately garnered a response from some coyotes that had a den 250 yards from our campground.

Click here to listen to this recording : Lone coyote (soundblast) with coyote chorus response.

I thoroughly dislike the word sound blasting as it conjures up the image of playing back sounds at a 120 db level. So if anyone knows of a “kinder and gentler” term please post it here in the comment section.

    I think that call blasting with a combination of other things are the best tools out there. You can always pair call blasting with wood knocking and or calls that you might able to imitate yourself.

    sorry, no euphemism for "sound blasting" that i can think of. but NICE GOING as to the trout fishing. trout fishing makes life worth living.

    did you go on the recent CO 2009 expedition? if so hope to read/listen to your info soon.

    thx,

    Brooks,

    I was raised on trout in Northern Idaho, but my wife being from the Midwest was more accustomed to carp and catfish.

    I did attend the CO 2009 expedition. I assume that their report will be posted soon.

    I did not record anything squatchey, but I am unsure about the other members.

    northern ID? talk about sasquatch country. i lived in western MT for several years. great trout fishing.

    oh well. last year's recordings from the CO 2008 were really interesting. a shame this year was a bust.

    Stan, I don't like the term sound blasting either for exactly the same reason as you. What about if we just talk about 'calling' sasquatch as in using a duck call or a turkey call? BTW, I have discovered a guy dong some real good investigating and posting good videos of his many interesting finds on You Tube. Just go to You Tube and search on 4jaimeavalos. He is located in the southern Sierras, perhaps on the Nevada side. Not really sure where. He often indicates his altitude, which can range from hundreds of feet to over 9,000 feet. Keep up the good work. MP

    …oops. mispelled "here".

  8. Scott Albaugh July 29, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    Hey Stan,

    How about calling it "Sound Broadcasting".

  9. Scott July 31, 2009 at 9:57 am

    All methods fall under the concept of Acoustic Attraction…by wood-knocking…by mechanical call…by vocal immitation…by electronic amplification.

    I'll settle on "Amplified Acoustic Attraction." I like "Sound Braodcasting" too.

    Keep up the good work.

    Prior post should be from "Scott M." to differentiate from others who have posted. My apoligies.

    Brooks,

    The similarity of the Mississippi Recording and the Illinois Howl was the reason we posted the Mississipppi Recordings. So far that call is the most similar to what I recorded.

    Scott,

    Thanks so much for your comment about the word "sound blasting". I really like your suggestion "acoustic attraction" and I think I will start using it in the future. I have had dramatic results from unamplified sound so this really suits the bill.
