    Pic of commercial fleet in Barkley sound

    I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I'm trying to find that aerial shot of all the commercial boats setting their nats in Barkley sound fishing for sockeye from years back. For some reason my googling isn't yielding positive results.

    How Hearty are Hali?

    Tonight my daughter & I went out for a night walk on the super low tide (1.3ft tonight). We came across a juvenille (roughly 5lb) halibut. The tide wasnt yet at its low, but the fish started to bury itself in the sand. Not sure if it could survive being exposed I 'helped' it into deeper waters...

    WTB Rear Drag Spincasting Reel

    I need to replace a spin casting reel and am hoping maybe one of you forumers may have one kicking around that you could spare. It needs to be the larger variety, able to hold a 100+ yards of 15lb line. Anyone got one kicking around?

    Mystery Salmon - Coho or Spring

    I realize this may seem like a silly question. I took these pictures of the salmon I caught yesterday and we still don't know if its a Coho or Spring. We asked the creel survey person and they thought it was a coho, but to me the jaw doesnt match. You can see it has a square tale, like a coho...

    Making your website clickable in your signature

    Im sure this has probably been covered before, but I've noticed several users have their website in their signature in strictly text. You can make it a clickable link by adding the url tags similar to how you'd add a link to a forum message. To do it yourself just remove use this template...

    What I learned today

    The lesson of the day is, NEVER PULL A HALI IN BY THE HARPOON. I'll attempt to phrase this out while I cry in my beer. So my friends and I had a plan to fish the hump in CR early this AM. Met at big rock at 5am, and set to it. Now begins the tale of woe. We set to it, 2 lines down...
