Author Topic: ID your catch!
Fupa

I feel kinda obligated to post this but after my last visit to Pegleg i saw about a dozen endangered wild Coho being caught and retained. Remember a spring is spotted with BLACK gums, a Coho is spotted with WHITE gums! Also i know its difficult with the 12+foot leaders but plz try to ID your fish before you drag it up onto the rocks.

peace!

posts like this are going to make the dfo close the fraser for sockeye.
cagey

abe, it is not posts like this. it is the idiots who are catching/keeping the coho. the problem with sockeye fishing is all the non-fishing idiots come out of the woodwork, they have no idea as to the rules nor do they care.

I dont think the DFO is scouring the internet forums to determine when they shutdown the sockeye fishing....
daver

haha, abe's post would only happen on this site, he doesnt have the nerve to post on FWR or BCFR. i love this site.

ya i should have a v8 lol. i never heard of a bait ban before awell i guess even the best of the fishermen can screw up some times. maybe next time i'll go floss some socks with seacaster in the vedder jj
abe

just to clear this up
1: that spring bit
2: after checking the way point on my gps
40*08'34.59"N
122*07'20.04"W
and telephone conversation with dfo
this location is inside vedder river fish boundry it just seems like its the fraser when theres low water as there is now.
you are alowed to use bait there for salmon.
3:if i do hook a coho i know what they look like and release right away unharmed
