HaHa!!......chuckle.......:) You're right.......I don't take a tackle box on board.....I have plastic close-able trays that go in onboard storage boxes....on either side of the rear of my craft. I have a habit of always taking way too much tackle with me....(just in case it's needed...you never know....:)) On any trip I will ex [...]

Thanks for taking the time to post the reports and photos again this year, Gil. I found them very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to your saltwater reports. Regards.

The two little flashers in the pic were made, I think, by a local man that lived in Nanoose Bay and were on the market a number of years ago. They were out a couple of years and then I never saw them any more (or since). I put them beside a normal flasher for size comparison. I want to get some more of these but I have no idea [...]

I agree with Seafever that the Hotspot flasher seems to be made of tougher stuff than the others of its ilk and the green and glow is my most consistent producer. I also like the OKI Betsy especially in the silver form early in the summer with the Super Gold Betsy most productive for me in August and September.

I understand the fisheries recently did a swim count of the wild Steelhead in the Salmon River here on the Island, they counted 40 fish. There are still guides daily flogging the water and catching the same fish over and over again .Every year the counts are less and less when are we as sports fisherman and the regulators going to w [...]

FishTactics has a facebook page and we used to keep it somewhat updated with photos and the occasional report but lately we have let it go mainly due to not having enough time to manage it properly. My goal was to link all new articles, and 1 report daily plus some goof forum topics, cool photos or videos submitted on the site. I [...]

''Some'' spawning activity is a major understatement. Probably 90% of the doe's we've caught in the last week have had tail damage from starting to dig, and probably 25% have been kelts. It's extremely hard to target the non-spawning fish right now. We picked up quite a few sea liced chromers the next cast after landing a dirty o [...]
