The Pinks and the Cohos here - As the Chinook fishery slowed this week, the pinks and cohos more than made up for this. Never seen pinks in our area this early. The Coho are a nice sizes. Both are jumping like crazy. Hard to keep them in your net. The bait is back in large numbers in and around the Grandé area (yeah!). This [...]

Balancing Long Rods
Written by treblig | July 22, 2014
Balancing Long Rods
On average I fish for 6-8 hours of repetitive handling and casting my fishing rod!

Using an unbalanced rod has caused fatigue on my wrist, arm, biceps, shoulder and even my neck and can become impossible to handle. I have had injury due to unbalanced rods including cramps, loss off feeling, stiffness, and loss of strength in my casting arm by the end of the day.

All the strain will affect your quality of fishing and effectiveness in catching your prey.

Here is why you should not overlook balancing your rod ...

The type of rod you’re using will determine how to balance the rod with what reel and the position of that reel.  In my case whether I am fishing for steelhead or beach fishing I use long rods. My rods vary from 11 foot, 11 1/2 foot, 13foot and 13 1/2 foot. I hold the tip high so there is a lot of [...]

On the other hand I went to Nile Creek and they are there but [...]

ITS HERE! CJ Special Salmon Lure
Quote from Robert Van Pelt article

''The Original  CJ Special Salmon lure is developed and designed by ardent angler Charlie Jones. Charlie hand tools and finishes his lures to a craftsman like finish. Charlies passion has been delicately furnished into each and every lure that he makes.

While testing the CJ Specials along the coastline of British Columbia Canada, we have had a great opportunity to catch multiple species of fish, including Salmon, halibut, lingcod and other groundfish species, as well as trout, steelhead, bass, musky & pike…the CJ Special has also been very successful at catch tropical warm water species too!

With all the hoopla surrounding Charlie and his infamous lure, he spends countless hours in his workshop making new lures. Last year Charlie licensed his product to a company who has a [...]

Some Great Fishing Close to Ucluelet Harbor - Over the past week some of the best salmon fishing around Ucluelet has been close to the Harbor Mouth.
