    You can buy a long handled dip net, I think Trotac has them.
     
  3. I use my big catch and release salmon net. Bring in a few hundred at a time. The small ones fall out but who cares kinda deal.

    Well I will post a fishing report on the reports page. Fishing Hali on Sunday between albert head and William head. It was on fire for dog fish! We got our dog fish limit in no time. They were eating everything, I mean everything!

    Question for you old timers: When you find herring, how do you fish for salmon around it? Still on the bottom? Same presentation? Thanks
    (sorry, this isn't a report, just a question related to the discussion)

    Had luck in the summer trolling around balls at 30' on the rigger.

    I'm not really an "old timer" just old-ish but in my experience, salmon are usually just below (and sometimes to the side) of the bait ball. Downrigger trolling at a depth = to the bottom of the bait ball works well as does dropping a cut plug/banana weight combo to that depth.

    Scott,
    We just got called "old timers," I remember when other guys were old timers and we were bright eyed and bushy tailed! Damn

    9 till 2 on the hook on the mud flats yesterday. Picked up a 32 on the tide change. Before that we got a good taste of the "world class" dogfish fishing experience that is available to the Victoria angling community. Weather was great after the rain stopped.
