  3. Mouth of Harrison

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was in the Harrison yesterday. Tried trolling spinners and plugs for a while with not much luck. Noticed a bunch of boats right at the mouth. We decided to join this Chum jigging frenzy right at the mouth. At first we sat back on anchor for a bit and watched everyone to see what they were...

  7. How Well Do You Know the Regs?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi folks, I thought I would throw this question out as a little challenge to see how well people can interpret both the saltwater and freshwater regulations. If our good mods feel there is a more appropriate section for this post, feel free to move it. It is primarilya 'salt' question but...

    Hi , I'm considering buying a folding boat or porta boat as an alternative to inflatable or aluminum boats. I always like to hear the opinions of people who have or had this type of boat as it looks like a great boat in the water and light weight and easy to transport. Thanks.
  13. River Coho Gear

I hate using 10 foot rods and my garcia 10000's seem like major overkill for coho. Will a 7 foot ugly stick med rod w spinning reel be good enough or do I need special...
