p.2 Whitefish - The Picton Gazette says:- "Immense hauls of whitefish are now made with the seine on the Wellington and East Lake beaches, from 9,000 to 10,000 being taken at once by a single seine; on Friday night last, 45,000 were taken. The fish are not as good as those taken in the fall, being somewhat flabby; but readily find purchasers on the beach at $6 per bbl.

This is the first season in which the seine has been used so early. For two or three years past gill nets have been employed during the summer months; but formerly the fish were allowed to run unscathed till the fall. Our fishermen had better be careful, or they will kill the goose that laid the golden egg."
