    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
