  1. FishTV

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I was at a tackle store today and saw a nifty gadget... it was an underwater video camera that could go as deep as 100ft. It came with an attachment for a downrigger cable. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with such novelties? I'd love to hear a report... I'm not sure they'd be all that...

  4. Pulling plugs in the Harrison

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I'm looking for a stress free setting to take the family Salmon fishing. Like everyone else I have filled up the freezer with sockeye and would like take the kids and lady out for some fun also. Setting the rod in the pull holder and pulling or back trolling kwik fish is always fun for me and...

    Region 2 - Reports
    It's been awhile since I got out and went out this morning. Made it to the river by 7;30'ish. The river had risen at least 3 ft over night. I thought OMJG it's going to be a good day.

  9. What does the 'daily limit' mean to you?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I'd like to point out and remind everyone that the daily limit IS the DAILY limit! This morning on my way out from Ambleside, I ran into a couple guys in a small aluminum boat who were on their way home after limiting out in a couple hours (I know this because they couldn't stop bragging). I...

  11. Wtf???? Flossing?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I'm disturbed... I just read some freshwater reports (god knows why). People are actually proud of the fact they "floss" the sox in the river. I know I'm new to the west coast but in my opinion this is intentionally foul hooking a fish, isn't it? Makes me sick to think of fathers teaching...
  12. Custom Spinning Rod

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently took up building custom rods, and decided that my latest build would be a rod for my neice. She lives in Kamloops and my brother takes his kids out to the local lakes quite frequently, either still fishing from shore, or trolling very light gear. I wanted to build a rod that she could...

    Region 5 - Reports
    Took 3 kids out on the lake today for about 3 hours (then they wanted to go to 10 Mile to swim:D). Anyway the water temp has risen quite a bit since I was last out there 3 weeks ago and is now sitting at 72 F. Slowed the fishing but not a whole lot, got one for each of the kids....1.5lbs, 2.5lbs...

    Hi all! Ok, a little about myself....well I used to fish a ton when I was younger but have been away from it for many years now. About a year ago I really started to feel like my kids were missing out so I got back into it! Since then I have been doing a lot of exploring and had my son out to...
  16. How to keep young punks busy while salmon fishing???

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I've had the unfortunate bomb dropped on me that I now have to spend a week with the young punk demco99 in Kyuquot. :p For those that fish with kids on the chuck how do you keep them busy? ??? Puzzles? Bring a portable DVD player with Dora the Explorer DVD's? Lego? Colouring books with...
  17. Loon Lake

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Went to Loon lake with the family last weekend. Had a chance to fish with the kids on a few occasions. The highlight of my trip though is the morning before leaving back home, I decided to do one last fishing at first light. I hooked my first fish, had it right in front of my boat and next thing...
  18. Introduce a Child to the Sport of Fishing

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi guys, I just wanted to recommend that you take the kids in your life with you on your fishing trips. Children these days desperately need to get outdoors and away from the lure of tv and video games. I took my four year old grandson out for the first time recently, and he had the time of...
