  1. 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...

    Region 8 - Reports
    Well, last weekend, Wendy and I headed out of town to Manning Park for one last weekend in the trailer.

    Region 2 - Reports
    Little late on the report, but thought I'd throw out my trip. Floating row most of the morning with only a couple Spring jacks and pesky smolts taking the offer, so switched up to shortfloating some jigs, and boy was that the ticket, hit some froggy looking water, and BANG an absolutely...

  7. putting out spring gear?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I keep hearing people say they are putting out at least one set-up to target springs. I have a quick question, should I put the chinook gear on the upper or lower rod? I've had a couple nice chinooks in the last week, both have been on sox gear, and on the top rod. Would it be correct to assume...
  8. the quiet, calm areas of the fraser for shore fishing

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've avoided the Fraser entirely for about 10 or 12 years. The Gong Show I saw down there the few times I did go back in the late 90's left such a bad taste in my mouth I just never went back. That means that I have NO idea what bar is what bar or where or how busy they are. Generally, I...
  9. The Margaree

    Angling Outside BC
    Headed back to Nova Scotia to attend a conference last week, and was able to extend my stay and try a little atlantic salmon fishing up in Cape Breton on the Margaree River. I decided to hire a guide so that I could give myself the best opportunity to take advantage of the two days I had. As it...

    Boating Forum
    So I am looking to get into a bigger boat and am trying to really figure out if I want to go with an outboard or an I/O. Admittedly I don't know as much as I should on the subject so some of your opinions on the following criteria would be appreciated. Ok so lets assume identical HP, both in...

    Have fished Jones a number of times and have caught many but the biggest is perhaps last trip where I released a pretty good cutthroat of maybe 17". I've heard there's 2 - 3 pounders in there and a couple of guys I talked to have said even up to 5lb but not sure about that. I've tried trolling...
