I am thinking about it, but I am having a hard time getting myself motivated to get out there to get a couple more Sockeye. With the amount of people that I know will be out, and the amount of netting that is going on this weekend, I don't know!! :? :)

Well - I know I'm not out there right now! :D Actually - I went yesterday and it was very slow... :? . Hooked two and lost both. I think the bulk of the run hasn't arrived yet. Plus - the netting may be having an effect... :?:

It was a bit slow on Wednesday as well, one fish quick, then nothing for about 4 hrs. When we were about to leave, I hooked one, then next cast another. So we stayed for a bit and would up getting our limits in about another 25 min or so!! I guess they took there nets out of the water and a run of fish snuck threw!! :shock: After what we had seen the entire moring, 5 fish in 25 min was a bit surprizing!! :)

you won't see me out there. I am a sport fisherman. I make sure the fish I hook actually bite my hook. Better than flossing fish that don't even know there hook until the hook is loged into the side of there mouth. I don't see any point to that. Where are the ethics behind that? Flossing fish is for cowards (beeks, euro's) Flossers continue to floss on our other local rivers, and the vedder, and chehalis, and these beeks screw it for the people that do know how to fish with bait. I have the DFO # on my speed dial now. The next flosser I see is gonna get it. (a big fine that is) I'll be waiting in the bush, I'm gonna snipe you out!

Steelienightmare, I understand your comments but they were not needed in this post. There are too many other posts going on about ethics/flossers etc...go post your comments there. The fact is I enjoy sockeye! Therefore I will floss my two socks then go Bar Fishing.

Lets keep this post out of the tiresome arguments we see all over every board right now!

I have a 16ft Red Starcraft Aluminum with a 55Hp Yamaha. Walkthrough windshield and a Riverside Fly and Tackle sticker on the drivers side (ya I know...I haven't picked up my BCFR stocker yet :wink: ) I would look forward to meeting you on the river.

Sounds like you are calling everyone that flosses fish a beak and someone that doesn't have the first clue about actually getting a fish to bite your hook!! Well, like other true Sportsman, I like sockeye, and eventhough all of these sockeye are not biting your hook, it is still more sporting than going to the store and spending $25-30 on one.
One more thing a had 3 out of the 5 I took home this week that were hooked in a way that they could not have been flossed. 1 right through the lower jaw, at the front hook pointing down and the other 2 were in the tounge. So it seems that some will actually hit. They were on the retrieve using a 7-8' leader.

Anyhow, if you have doubts on whether or not people who floss can actually catch fish, I could post up to many pictures to count of Big Steelhead, monster coho and massive Spring. All caught short floating roe, blades and wool.

SO yes, Steelie trav was right about that post not needing to be herre, but since I started the thread, I felt that I needed to reply to it. One more thing, I just asked if anyone was going fishing. I didn't say for what or where. I was kinda hoping that someone would give me an idea of whatelse I could go for. Still have some eulies, I just might go Sturgeon fishing. I haven't done that for a couple months. Or perhaps hit the Veddar. Haven't decided yet!! :wink:

BS you're the biggest beek on all of these sites. Once you catch a fish you don't shut up about it. You think you're the best fisherman around. Do us all a favor and shut your yap, when you go out and catch two sockey on the fraser, cuz the sportfisherman don't care. A monkey could catch a sockey on the fraser. BTW is that thickrick you have on your AV, on the fishing with rod site :roll: pretty gay if you ask me!!

Pretty ignorant and intolerant comments Steelie,,,,,,,I'm thinking its maybe someone else who should "shut his yap"....
I thought we were a group of widely diverse people who enjoyed all forms of fishing. But, it seems some just can't wait to unload with both barrels on anyone who strays into their range.....Sad really!!!! :?

Hey nightmare Isnt this what this site is for, last time i checked the idea was to post about the fish you caught what else are we suposed to talk about on this thing??? I think your on the wrong site if ya dont want to post what fish you caught & where ya caught it, isnt this the main idea so we can give pointers to all the guys that are not pro's ( like myself ) So stop beak'n off to everyone else about what they post if ya dont like it dont read it,
Im sure there are plenty of other sites that would love to hear your rant just not ours, 8)

ya sorry ladies and gents, I crossed the line. Sorry BS, forget my last comment. I'm sure you are a good rod. I just don't agree how these sockeye are being caught, and how it is screwing up the way people fish the fraser tribs. I should just shut my yap, and walk away from these people. Sorry to stir up the pot over nothing, sorry Big Steel, I was way out of line.
