Westside, eh? This guy is good, he really breaks down the b-b'ing rigging for you. He points out that some guys are using 20' leaders but he prefers to only use 12'.

Apprearntly 20-25# fluorocarbon line is the key so the fish don't see the leader.  ::)

Hmmmm - good advice?

You decide if this helps you. That braided knot does look good though.

I would say floro only because it sinks. But Mono works just fine and the added stretch is perfect. Whatever works I guess.

I tie dark green wool and corky 2" behind my hook to not interfere with a hookset. So many ways to floss. Whatever

Yes many ways to bounce. Biggest thing is just go out an get them while and if you can. Finest eating fish you can get out of this river and you never know, you may not get another crack at them next cycle 4 years from now.

Yesterday everybody I talked with limited out. It was a great day for flossing.
Ruined only by the double-dippers. Had to chase off a whole group off of Croft Island.
They were four guys who limited out while I was sitting behind them, waiting for a spot to open.
They left with their 8 fish, and then came back an hour later with the intention to fish again. 
Not cool. Not cool at all.

They did get a piece of my and other people's mind and left. I took their license plates and will be watching.

Awesome work milo,  enforcement knows this happens all time time but unless they are out their documenting it itís hard to charge. With the DFO office in mission getting shut down and officers retiring and positions no being back filled they is hardly any left.

Itís really up to the public to stop this and shame the f out of these people.

Sockeye is a shared resource by all Canadians. They are stealing from us when people do cupcakes like this. We all loose as a society.

So I thank you

...what pikers! Don't they know the proper way to double dip is to go home and bring back the wife, kids and the grandparents?

Opening will be confirmed tomorrow.

https://www-ops2.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fns-sap/index-eng.cfm?pg=view_notice&DOC_ID=211924&ID=all
Looks like a shorter proposed opening than last time, yes?  Wasn't it 24 hours last time?  This is only 16 hours.

Popped my cherry! Fished for sockeye and the Peg Leg both for the very first time today. Trial by fire, I guess. Amazed at how many people are there on a weekday. 11-3, managed to land one, hooked a few more. Two guys (friends, I guess) next to me argued over which colour wool to use. One insisted on green because it infuriates to fish. The other guy also insisted on green because they can't see it. lol, probably the latter.

Question: An older couple was fishing below me. Well, the man was, landing four fish between them while the wife never left her chair. I presume she has a licence but she has to bring it to shore, no? nobody said anything.

Another guy snagged my line a few times, when I unhooked him, I noticed he didn't pinch the barb. I told him but he just giggled. wtf?

Is all this typical for the fishery? I mean, it was fun and most people were cordial but it's a difficult value proposition coming from downtown to combat for two fish, maybe. I guess you really have to get closer to Hope for the best action?

Quick question Re: limits.

If say 3 people are on a guided trip.  The limit for the guests would be 6 sockeye.  Can the guide also catch his two during the same trip for a total of 8 in the boat, legally?

Not for me, just looking at some guide pics on social media...
