  1. "Company Outing"

    Saltwater General Discussion
    So, my Boss comes to me and says he'd like to take the employees out fishing. He has a boat (50+ ft), some fishing gear and a desire to fish, but no knowledge. I'm a fisherman of sorts (kind of new to salt with some experience) and he is hopeing i can make this whole employee fishing get...
  2. [FISHING REPORT] Port Renfrew - Sept 2010

    Vancouver Island
    Just got back from a week in Rennie with my oldest son. This was my first trip over there, so it was a learning experience. To sum it up, the spring fishing was slow. Not a lot coming in, and most weren't that large that I did see landed. The Coho fishing just started to heat up the last couple...
  3. Scotty Electric Downriggers - ISSUES?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hey guys, I wanted to see if anyone had some advice before I send these down riggers back again to scotty! Everything works fine, they come up fine but wont go down, I have to pull the line out with my hands to get it to go down. I have 10 LB cannon balls on? Is there something I can do myself...
  4. The elusive sockeye

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Arrrggghhh. Just curious if anyone can help me figure out what I was doing wrong. We were out yesterday from 2 until 7 in the pack of boats of the south arm. We watched a crazy amount of fish jumping everywhere. We watch what seemed to be every boat hook up multiple times. I got zilch. Not one...
  5. [FISHING REPORT] More Fraser Sox Showing up North. Another Huge Run is Pushing Through! Sox Run Size

    Region 2 - Reports
    A friend of mine hooked into 18 yesterday, up on the north island! They said they couldn't get those buggers off the downriggers! I thought the action was hot up there when I was up there 2 weeks ago, but it's bigger now:) Then he saw a native seiner do a food-fish set and it was nasty big haul...
  6. Rivers inlet

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Been going to Rivers Inlet for the past four years I believe,and cant wait to go up there again this year. We always go up there third week of August,and fishing is great, even me who is a rookie at this type of fishing but with a great nose for finding fish LOL had no problem finding fish. Now...
  7. Coal Ports to Sandheads

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I am planning on launching the boat this weekend and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck around the tsawwassen coal ports or out towards sandheads? The crabbing is always great here but I have had little luck in the past with salmon. I am running two scotty elect riggers.
  8. Netting a fish in a boat alone

    Saltwater General Discussion
    More often than not I fish alone. I'd love to hear stratagies for netting a fish while you're alone and trolling. I generally use 2 downriggers and would prefer to keep trolling as I land the fish.
  9. One day trip to Vancouver Island - where to go....

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I would appreciate some help from the members here. I am planning with a friend to haul my boat to the Island for a single day of fishing – it will be a whirlwind trip but with our various family and professional commitments, it is realistically all we can put together so obviously we want to...
  10. Positive voltage control/Black box

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I've read about this for some time now and finally got around to doing a test. I guess it's best to be around .600, from what I've read. This test was done with metal downrigger cable. My question is, I have spectra on two of my downriggers and I was wondering if that would eliminate the voltage...
  11. Electric Scotty riggers.

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I'm looking for a set of used Scotty electric riggers for the new boat. I'm having a hard time on craigslist and the buy&sell so if you guys know of any around please give me a hand. By the way, I'm switching teams. Now that I have the boat I'm looking forward to getting back out on the salt...
