I love bass fishing and I have been looking for good bass fishing in BC. Thanks for your posts. I have been to Silvermere and was casting from the highway side didn't catch anything. I dont have a boat so I am stuck with shore fishing. Any tips on bait? and bait color? were do you buy your bass bait? When the bass fishing picks up I might try and take my dad out. I have been looking at your rates on your website.
Soft plastic lizards work good, worms , creatures, 4" minnows and swim baits as mentioned before. I was in prime bass fishing while i was at school in Missouri. They seemed to like the 6" red and black worms, anything green and 6" green, purple with green flakes usually using a texas rig for me pull reel three times pause and repeat. Worked down there not 100% up here as i find there are more fun things to fish for. Although its hard to not smile when a bass smacks your top water lure.
Thats a pretty nice hog in your profile pic as well OP.
Check some of the site sponsors on the site i'm pretty sure they have some stuff, Canadian tire, you might need to go in there as not all stuff is listed on the site.ll. i'm pretty sure i've seen them in there before.
Down South, top water buzzbaits (many colors I prefer white or black); deeper spinner baits, again I prefer white, black or yellow and black blend. My best is catching at daybreak on a top water buzzbait. Salt.
You usually have to let them hit the work and take it a little bit. Because the hook might not hit his lip until he eats it all. He might hit the tail and have have the other bit hanging out of his mouth.
Yeah I find if I pause for a second before I set the hook the bass has choked the bait back far enough to get the hook in. Even when you cast out your bait let it sink down then reel it in a bit and let it sink and repeat. this gives the bass a chance to get a good strike on the bait well it is sinking. Unless your are doing top action of course.
Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser river over the past 2 weeks has offered up some nice surprises including a 9 foot beast on May 6. Freshet is here and that means you can't fish anywhere now. Experience is needed during freshet to find fish.
9 feet 4 inches White Sturgeon caught by Terrace man and family on the Fraser river near Mission BC on July 27, 2017. Our guests are experiencing some wicked Sturgeon fishing right now. Expect very good fishing until mid November.
Another great week on the water, lots of big sturgeon, some 5lb trout on the Pitt and some excellent salmon fishing out of Vancouver.

Change is in the air. After publishing over 800 sport fishing columns we

At this time, I would like to once again thank all...
