  5. Storing Roe in a mason jar.... A how to

    Freshwater General Discussion
    For the last little while I have been opting to store my roe in a mason jar after curing. Some of you may have already seen this manner in which you can seal the jar, but for those of you that haven't, I thought I'd share. First, take a mason jar, some use pints but quart sizes are ok as well...

  10. [FISHING REPORT] Cap River Sept. 19

    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. Well mother nature did not disappoint. There was virtually no one on the river so I called my wife to wake my...

  12. Reasons for the "gongshow" at bars like Jones, Pegleg, etc.?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Is there a reason for the shoulder-to-shoulder fishing at bars like Pegleg and Jones? Is it the accessibility of these locations? The quality of the bar (i.e. fewer rocks + debris to snag tackle on)? The names/popularity? Something else? A combination of one or more these things? I fished Jones...
  13. Dilema?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I was out with my father-in-law today and we quickly had 6 sockeye in the cooler... I told him that I thought we should bring up all but one rod because we'd had our share of double headers throughout the day and didn't want to go over the limit, just as I said this a fish took one of the three...

    Region 2 - Reports
    I know everyone is in the sockeye right now, but man oh man...I have to share this! We took a kid and his mom out fishing today and they had a blast with small bows. I left my 5 wt at home thinking maybe I can get lucky with a salmon on my 8wt. So while they were fishing, I thought I'd try a...

  19. Why do you never see anyone back troll or back bounce on the Fraser?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I have always wondered why I have never seen any one back bounce or back troll the Fraser. I know a big part of it is because of visibility and depth/current but there are areas that it could work. It works for guys on the Skeena, Kenai, and Columbia and they are all big, silty and deep/fast...
