For anglers that live in Walleye country, spring time is Walleye time! Check your local regulations on Walleye openings in your area. The dates will correspond with the post spawn period. The further north you live or will be fishing the later openings (ice out in the Territories is late May or June; Walleye post spawn will be 1 – 2 weeks later).

After spawning, Walleye will work their way to the nearest richest feeding areas to put on the feed bag. Read More

For those anglers that have played a large Salmon on light gear without a flasher, Dodger or weight etc… you know the thrill of the battle that can only be experienced fishing this way. The first thing I noticed was the salmon fought differently they were not fighting the flasher or weight they were fighting me. I noticed a lot more surface action, high jumps and tail walks. Definitely great excitement for all. Here’s, how you do it. Read More

I recently got wind of a Small Mouth Bass lake here on Vancouver Island that has 8lbs Small Mouth and 10lb Rainbows. Hearing that immediately put me into research mode to verify the legend. Well. It’s true and it’s only an hour’s drive from my farm.  I’m not equipped for fresh water fishing right now as I have to build a small boat. Luckily I still have my electric trolling motor and spare sonar.

Anyways, all this talk of Bass made me think of the Baitrix Soft Bait Minnow and put me back into research mode. Searching out the local sporting goods superstore and local tackle shops, I found lots of minnow baits to choose from. Being naturally competitive I purchased 2 brands that had wild claims of being the best. One claimed fish would hold onto the bait for the longest time. I could see them catching fish but they all looked like Muppet’s to me. Read More

I’ll bet there won’t be many sport fishermen out being a weekday. I’m going hell or high water. I know where there are some halies close to town, If I can get to them before the locals do. I’ll have to catch my fish Thursday and Friday before the weekend anglers get out and scooped them.
For most of March Halibut will stick around the sound as long as there is bait. The Herring all but collapsed in the sound due to over fishing. Traditionally the spawning Herring kept the Halibut close to shore and in Barkley Sound. I don’t know if there are enough pilchards and herring to do the job anymore. I sure don’t want to go off shore in my 20 foot open boat this time of year.
