    Now that’s a fish!

    Still a few fish kicking around the harbour ... have kept a 15 and a 13 this morning but haven’t been able to get a coho to bite in spite of seeing a few jumping.

    start in the tidal portion. Mouth of tribs are most productive for Chum but you catch most coho on the incoming tide no matter where you are. Bar fish from the boat with roe or if you don't have the patience/gear just use a large spinner/spoon on a spinning setup. You'll be rewarded. Just a reminder that you're only allowed 1 rod/person in the lower Fraser. Good luck!

    Thinking of heading out to sand heads tomorrow or Sunday, but not sure if it is a good idea or a waste of time. Does anyone have fished sand heads in past few days? Any report? Thanks.

    Woah woah woah wait a sec. You can take a boat up the Fraser from the harbor and fish? How have I never heard of this?! Where? How far up? Do you anchor? What kinda gear? The wifes gunna kill me.

    Yesterday I pickup up “chum roe” at Barry’s and anchored the boat close to the annacis channel and bar fished. Messy with that stuff and kinda hard to keep on the hook. (I still got it’s smell on my hands!). Managed one small fish that I dropped back. Saw 2 other boats just under the Alex Fraser. Think there are better areas than where I was. Lol

    Odd Coho and Chum. Short bite windows. The Cohos reel in like they are dead.
