Ok, I will be the first to hang thy head in shame I am going gear fishing this weekend and its all new to me. Using a hoochie? A spoon? A spoochy? I have no dammed idea what I'm doing but kayak fishing for massive chinook just sounds Frickin awesome! Let's hear your confessions.

Well Garry, you will be happy to find out I'm better at flyfishing than gear fishing;) Only 3 fish got in 2 days by 60 kayakers'. I ended up ditching the derby and going for rock cod, allowed 3 out here per day. Got 3 nice fish today but no salmon, they all are moving up the river with the rain we had. Some people paddled up to harass them but not me. Probably paddled 20km in 2 day, I'm beat
Boat fish gear pretty hard for salmon, ling, halibut and prawns. Been known to hunt, too. Staying out of the protein section of the grocery store is a way of life. Don't know if it is cheaper but it sure is fresher.
Going back to fly fishing after a three decade absence for the challenge.
