hey Family

you have the basic idea i guess

the best way to explain bar fishing is "LAZY MANS FISHING" hahahahahahaha

all you do is rig up a spin 'n' glow with a large weight most i think still use anywhere from 16-20 ounces (yes huge i said) and then you cast that out as far as you can for most places put the rod in a STRONG rod holder (as once in awhile sturgeon will grab them) and then hang a bell which is what i do then just sit back in your lawn chair and wait for the bell ti start ringing

that is pretty much it

oh i forgot this part. you have to have a heavy spinning rod you WILL NOT be able to cast that weight with a steely rod NO WAY it is hard enough with a heavy spinner.


hope that helped

Sure generally it is fishing from a sandbar.
More specifically it is essentially still fishing off the river bottom with a giant weight (16-24+ oz) and an large irritating lure like a spin&glo the size of your thumb.
It is the most successful method to entice Springs in the Fraser to bite.

hook beat me to it.

Cheers Stone, you got er' right on the head. It's more of a social than anything, good friends, good drinks, usually good food and lots of BS stories of the ones that got away and remember the times stories. Definately a great way to unwind till the bells start ringing.

Right on Crazy Drifter ....... and less hissy fits by bottom bouncers who are pi$$ed off that someone crossed their lines.

Why make enemies ...... make new friends ....... socialize ....... have a beer (or better water) ...... share a story ..... have some treats ........ get sunstroke .......... no ..... drop the sunstroke. :?

heavy spinning rod
Hey Hook,

Are you sure only a spinning rod will work? I've seen lots of level wind setups bar fishing. Are you saying they are using a level wind/bait caster with a spinning rod?

That's probably just a mistake Big Green ...... I'm sure Hook knows that many many people use level winds bar fishing ...... or at least I'd hope so.

what i meant by what i said is that those big spinner bar rods make life easier casting those 16-20 ounce weights

and i actually havent bar fished in many many years unfortunately :( not since i was like 15yrs old i would assume they would be casting with heavy weighted steelhead rods ? and a fairly big level wind for that though, yes?

tight lines

Hey Hook,

Thanks for clarifying. Now that you mention it, I would have to agree, especially for beginners. I am not a beginner but I have noticed that my heavy duty spinning outfit cast the weight a lot easier and farther than my abu 7000 and 11 foot baitcaster rod when bar fishing.
