Author Topic: commercial sockeye fisherman

WOW! I went down front street in New West Minister today. I could hardly beleive the amount of commercial boats. I feel the next couple of days are going see very few sockeye getting caught. I can't see many if any sockeye getting past the maze of commercial nets.It was unreal!!

it's so amazing that the fish can get through those nets, I was out today and got my limit

2socks 1 red spring!! double crown for me today.

You have to remember boyz how far up stream you were from New West.It would take the fish at least two days to move up to the upper fraser Valley area at best. Thousands of fish still get by when the nets are out. I was told that the Commercial fishing on Tues was very slow as a result they are recalculating the numbers.I laugh at all the flossers that complain when numbers change or things get closed down. You try calculating the somthing with the amount of variants that fisheries has to deal with. If you want to be fishing for the next 50 years and more! Think about the over all picture. P.S. My freezer is full of sox!

glad to hear guys are still catchin! I can't wait to get some more time off work.

good luck all!!!

Hey, I went out today up the river a bit more. Hooked into a good sized spring and one sock, while my friend hooked into two springs, one big and one small, and got into five more socks, but we couldn't get anything to the beach. Not too much happening. It was my first time BB and it's definitly not my favourite method; losing more rigs then hooking into fish. It was a good day though over all, (saw a hawk go after a duck) and a few other people getting a few socks and springs.

When I was there, i saw five springs get hooked into and numerous other socks. But yeah, there definitly are alot of springs.
