  4. Centerpin Reel Porn

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Down here in America we get what is called a "tax return". This pleasant chunk of cash the federal government gives back is always an excuse for me to splurge on a piece of tackle I've likely had my eye on for months. Thanks to this forum and others, it was suggested I track down a Kingpin...

    Contributer Discussions
    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...

  10. Mouth of Harrison

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was in the Harrison yesterday. Tried trolling spinners and plugs for a while with not much luck. Noticed a bunch of boats right at the mouth. We decided to join this Chum jigging frenzy right at the mouth. At first we sat back on anchor for a bit and watched everyone to see what they were...

  12. [FISHING REPORT] Vedder River - Sept. 30th

    Region 2 - Reports
    I headed out for first light this morning. Started down by Keith Wilson. I don't know the river very well, if at all, so my day was pretty experimental. The water was high and fast, in comparison to the one other time I headed out a couple years ago. I had my pin, so it was hard to get my...

  14. The Middle Vedder. Worth the walk?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Question to all of you who fish the middle vedder runs this time of year. I do not have waders, and I usally short float tipped Jigs or blades. The hike in around twin cedars ( which I did once last year )seems to keep the crowds away just enough to enjoy some personal space on the flow. My...

  19. Whats your favourite Set-up for beach fishing Coho?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I just wanted to find out what most people are using for Coho fishing from the beach... I mainly throw the iridescent zinger, but I also use blue fox spinners with green bands. Does anyone fish with a float of the beach? If so, whats your setup?
