  6. Albion Test Sets & Increasing Chum Numbers

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I noted that the chum return numbers are now really starting to increase. Last few days to be specific. I took a run up the Stave yesterday and had a good look around. I didn't see anything for chums. No jumpers, nothing. It doesn't mean they are not there of course, but what other tributaries...

  8. Oil changes when boat is in the water

    Boating Forum
    I know this may be the wrong section to post this, but I figure the majority of boaters who keep their boats in the water 24/7 are people in the chuck. I am wondering if one is able to do oil changes and leg oil changes (outboard motor) when a boat is in the water. Would an oil pump be...

  11. Outboard or inboard/outboard???

    Boating Forum
    So I am looking to get into a bigger boat and am trying to really figure out if I want to go with an outboard or an I/O. Admittedly I don't know as much as I should on the subject so some of your opinions on the following criteria would be appreciated. Ok so lets assume identical HP, both in...
  12. Prop boats in the Fraiser

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I have been fishing out on the Fraiser with a friend on his jet boat near chilliwack twice in the last week with good success. Been launching at the park for ten dollars. I noticed all sorts of types of boats from car toppers to fiber glass inboard outboards. My question is would I be crazy to...

  14. Munro

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been very busy and unable to wander far from the LM. It's getting later in the summer and warmer so I'm running out of options for going out on the odd day I have to myself. Did a little google-earthing and noticed some panoramio pics of Munro which sparked in me some questions. Dangerous...
