They should be here anytime soon! - We have been out 5 times in the last 2 weeks. It has been great to see so much wildlife enjoying the herring (not so much the commercials (see my Nanaimo report). We have had a couple good hit and runs and the undersize put up such a good fight you know they are getting well fed and have the e [...]

Waiting for them to come home! - It always seems like Christmas eve at this time of the year. WAITING! Waiting to open up the big smiley present. There is a lot of bait around and the commercials are still scooping them. We hear there is a lot of immature herring being caught (under size with little or no row) So there is ton [...]

Sturgeon Fishing Tackle Tips
Get your Sturgeon fishing tackle ready and be prepared

Peak Sturgeon fishing season on the Fraser river approaches as we head into spring. It won’t be long before we are hooking up with some beasts from the river! This is the perfect time to learn all the proper tackle setups and to ensure that you are ready to successfully fight that big fish. The primary objective of having your tackle adequately setup is to ensure success of landing that dream fish. Your arsenal is only as strong as the weakest link and that's where we have to ensure that all functioning parts of the system are 100%. This is also good for the health of the fish. We’ll go over the details below.

Sturgeon rods

Keeping in mind that Sturgeon can grow to epic proportions and fight with insane strength you will need a rod that can handle everythin [...]

Fly fishing the Squamish river near Vancouver - Bull trout are on the prowl for salmon fry. If you can find a pod of trout and present them a offering 'they can't refuse' then you'll be into fish! We fly fish here and are good at it. This is a beautiful river for a guided walk & wade fly fishing trip. It's only 50 minutes from Vancouve [...]

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 [...]

tyeefisher wrote: 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.

SmokeyRiver wrote: ''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 [...]
