    Freshwater General Discussion
    Went out for a day of fishing today on Cowichan Lake. Spent the day fishing off what's left of the old mill pier in Youbou and managed to catch a nice little 15 inch doe rainbow. I decided while cleaning her to check out what they were feeding on mostly and was impressed to find a crayfish...

  3. Why not make some time...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Carp...all kinds of things spring to mind when you hear that word. Dirty. Bottom feeding. Trash fish. Invasive and above all, inedible. So, who said anything about having to eat them? Not all anglers eat their catch. And the ones that do only take the choice fish. The long and short of it is...

  10. Brad's baits

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Has anyone tried the Brad's baits? I purchased a couple last spring and gave them a try but was slipping and sliding in the boat when I tried to use the tuna and oil mix. What a mess!!! I wonder if trying again would be worth the effort. I must admit that I did not separate the tuna from the oil.
