    Boycott Vancouver Boat Show

    I hope everyone will be boycotting the boat show. You can write all the letters and send in all the emails you want but DFO simply ignores them. A failed boat show will make the media and do more good. In Hawaii when the fish started disappearing all the fishermen stopped buying licenses. There...

    Lings at Thrasher

    The lings made a great comeback after being closed for all those years and now it seems they are being fished more heavily than ever. The pics I see are of large fish that I believe are better left alone to breed , wouldn't it be better to take a smaller better eating fish than a photo op ?

    Big Lings at Thrasher

I was there back in the 70's and 80's when guys would jig garbage cans full of cod, I give it another couple of years and it will be all shut down again. The...

    So today my wife and I returned to the ramp and I see a large 30 foot plus Harbourcraft with a blue extended cover waiting outside in the river. We went in and it continued to circle in the river, we noticed a few oriental people with coolers on the dock and some in parking lot. I guess once the...

    New forum rules

    So I just recieved an email about the new forum rules and looks like censorship by some who are offended by anything as trivial s being called an "idiot" or perhaps a photo of a girl in a bikini. I hope no one here uses the word "Christmas " because that would be offensive to me as I only...
