  13. Brad's baits

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Has anyone tried the Brad's baits? I purchased a couple last spring and gave them a try but was slipping and sliding in the boat when I tried to use the tuna and oil mix. What a mess!!! I wonder if trying again would be worth the effort. I must admit that I did not separate the tuna from the oil.
  14. Lower Cowichan?
