    Fished NA and SA today. Got a few early at NA but it slowed down. Went to sandheads and lost a few fish but ended on a double header and letting one go since we only needed one more for the limit

    Guess what he wants is an X marks the spot!

    Seeriously though...today was slower for some depending on where you were. It can be frusterating and I'm seeing some people frusterated by their recent results.

    If you have been out more than once and are not getting bites....copy the instructional diagram posted earlier and my long email about "S for Sockeye". If not, Sox are $5 a pound At the Steveston dock....so $25-35 per fish.

    FYI...in the dummy flasher department....the blue flasher thing making the rounds on Instagram, Facebook, and this thread is horseshit for off the mouth of the Fraser. You don't NEED Blue Glow Flashers. It is irresponsible to make people believe that. Get your old beat up working flasher down. When the Adams run gets here watch the Commercial Trollers if they get a shot. Observe what they use off the Fraser...they will be too busy to mess with dummies since they have a squirt on every flasher...and note what flashers they use. I rest my case

    Check out the many guides posting pics of exactly what they are using... many NOT using Blue... ;) Just get a flasher down flashing....end of story.

    Lots of these staged sox are a little desensitized now and there are 200,000-300,000 holding out there right now. Food for thought.

    The best is yet to come. Get out and pit some fiah in the freezer and eat well this winter.

    Yup....it's no secret. Same tackle, troll slow, work from 30-90, find a school anywhere from North Arm to Sandheads and stick with them.

    Ya. I think the stores had an abundance of blue flashers to get rid of...
    Now let's start a thing about red Kone Zones.

    Lol, no I dont need a big red X. Haha.
    In and out in 20 minutes sounds like me and my wife in the bedroom last night ffs.

    Everyone wants details.

    I already have my 2 day sockey quota sitting in my freezer, can't keep any more until I eat a few. Been targeting spring for the most part but the damn coho keep stealing my bait.

    Cheers, leave details or not. No big deal.

    There were a few of them out today from sandheads to t10. Pretty sure they were just running plain Crome flashers. Sure the 50+ lines they run helps in the flasher department

    Use dummies...boating 12 Sockeye in an hour doesn’t happen unless you’re using a net. ;) Your results may vary without.

    I never even thought of using my kone zones for sockeye, do they work?

    20 min's? When in the room and thinking about fishing I leave my socks on foaming about Sox and then go look at fishing gear . :D:p

    Your 2 day Sox limit only applies to when you are away from your principle residence, like all possession limits . If you are taking them "home" you don't have to be peeing bright orange to fish 3 days in a row with limits. ;)
