    Pro Gear Pacifica 2500 for surface iron?

    Nice! Yeah that’s what I was thinking, I’m going to go down to the bay and test out some jigs today and I’m going to play with the pro gear! I just got done servicing it yesterday for an upcoming trip. It was a hand me down reel from my dad years ago, but it feels like it’ll cast a mile after...

    Pro Gear Pacifica 2500 for surface iron?

    I kinda like the padded handle. It’s just not very corrosion resistant. Dissimilar metals and all that jazz.

    Pro Gear Pacifica 2500 for surface iron?

    It’s a pretty smooth reel compared to my other jigmasters. Thought it would be a good reel to let someone learn with if they came out with me.

    Pro Gear Pacifica 2500 for surface iron?

    Anyone ever use the Pro Gear Pacifica 2500 for throwing surface irons? Figured since it’s basically a jigmaster that’s got a beefed up frame why not?

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    I don't feel bad for releasing the fish. Those guys can pound sand for all I care. I care more about protecting this fishery than their personal feelings. So pretty much I'm done trying for sockeye this season. It's pretty difficult when the tribes don't lift their nets. Oh well.

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    So the end of the day total. 0-sockeye, 1- wild chinook landed and released by the guy fishing next to me. I netted it for him and unhooked it, then released it. Then proceeded to get harassed by every person on the bank for "making" the guy let it go. Idk so much for doing the right thing.

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    Haha had to be a dad yesterday. My daughter woke up with a fever so I didn't get out there, my buddy went by the soccer fields and said it wasn't very good. Just a couple people with fish.

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    Fish counts in the trap are up so I am going to try youngs bar in the morning. I will report what i see and do!

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    Damn, yeah I've been thinking the same thing. I don't know what is holding them up right now. Very possible it's the low water or even possibly the water temp. But 60 fish in the trap isn't bad, yet isn't ideal.

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    I went yesterday morning to Young's Bar, saw 3 fish get pulled in the entire time I was there. Saturday's count at the fish trap was only 60 fish. So they're coming, just not in high numbers yet.

    Bear Archery "Charge"

    Haha basically that I joined the Navy and spent about 2 years from home doing boot camp, training and living in the barracks at my first duty station and didn't even look at or pick up the bow. So essentially I lost my interest in using it at all. I just wanna get rid of it so that someone who...

    Freshwater Skagit Sockeye

    Sounds about right, judging on the water clarity further up the river it should be pretty damn clear down there. So pull out the shy gear and get ready to finesse some salmon in! Haha

    It's a great time if you put the time in to learn the different techniques of fishing for these fish. Plus there is a damn good diversity of fish you can catch out here!

    Drifting out of Forks?

    Thanks, that's pretty much what I've gather by talking to a couple people. I went down the Sol Duc with a guide and I can tell you that I would crap my pants if I ever tried to row that thing! Haha Have you heard any reports out of the Bogey lately?

    Drifting out of Forks?

    I'm looking to go out to forks in a couple weeks. I understand the Bogachiel is a normal drift and the Sol Duc isn't even an option for me at my skill level! I'm not looking to feed the river, so what are some of the safer drifts? Thanks! -Nick
