Thats what im talkin about :thumbup: I do it maybe 1-2 a week on the vedder (get lazy lol) but everyone seems to give me a cocked eye when i mention it. Even at freds tackle they kinda looked at me like im crazy. So i never knew if i was just waisting my fishin time or not. Seems like it would be the same thoughKryptonite said:
I get crazy looks too but its worth it to get the hook up. I think I might head out there right now and give it a go.Dubz said:...they kinda looked at me like im crazy. So i never knew if i was just waisting my fishin time or not. Seems like it would be the same though
Cool, thanks for the tip bud. Think i might try again tomorrow but for sure on monday. Is time of the day an issue with barfin?Kryptonite said:I dont want to give the impression that I do this all the time, because I dont. But at the same time, it works and like with any other kind of fishing you need to know what to set up when and where to maximize your chances at success.
Dubz, you mentioned that you were using the larger sized glows and I too would not hesitate to use them if the conditions would warrant it but when I was out the other day there was about 2.5' of vis in blasting sun. The fish were holding in about 5' of slow moving water. A huge glo with a huge hook on mega line would probably have just scared the crap out of the holding fish. I positioned my gear at the top end of the holding water by casting above and walking my rig into the desired spot. With the set up where it was. I was using the allure of a spinning lure with the added attraction of bait to bring the fish from lower down to my set up.
The hardest part was detecting the bite. No big hammer downs like you get on the Fraser fishing unscented glos, the rod would just slowly load up like a small branch was catching the line.
Me too... missed a lot of hits today. But then again I had quite a few hammer it too eace:HOOK said:I hear you on the soft takes Krypto. I only had one fish hit hard yesterday, we were all drifting roe and the takes were extremely soft most of the time only shaking the float a bit :wallbash: made for lots of missed strikes :wallbash:
Actually Nicole it was done mostly down by KWB when it was a 1 lane bridge by the old fella in the yellowish colored mazda that lived on 3 Road in Yarrow. He caught a ton of steelhead down there. I heard there was a plaque of some sort in that area recognizing him?? I'm sure the veterns like George Dyck, Peter Vandermullun(sp), or the son of Mike(Mikes Reel Repairs) could attest to that. In the past couple years guys like Werner and Jim J. have bar fished in the area where the dragline used to be, but not as effective as the old guy...Nicole said:Bar fishing used to be done in the canal, around the dragline run
Remember the days when guys used to bar fish between the 2 hwy bridges on the Sumas all the way down to Marshall Cr. in the fall for coho? Getting old sucks!Kryptonite said:I remember bar fishing in the canal below the highway bridge and around the corner with my dad when I was a kid. There were usually a few guys down there if I remember correctly. I cant say that I actually remember catching any fish though...
