May 8 fishing report update

We had 4 boats out on the water yesterday, they landed 30 sturgeon between them which is a great day on the water. Some very respectable sized fish beinng caught with our largest this week measuring over 8ft.

Water levels on the Fraser have risen over 1 meter the past few days due to warm weather and there is more to come, the good news is that fishing is still very good so no reason to get too excited about it. Most of the fish are coming on eel and eulichon but salmon eggs are also working well.

STS Guide Doug Elias has been testing asturgeon combo that is what i think is under rated and overlooked by many anglers. The penn Squal is one of the newest lever drags on the market and has been working well for sturgeon for the past season. Doug just matched it up with a Ugly Stik tiger and is very happy with the action and power this rod has. I would suggest tht this is a boat rod more than a shore rod as it is shorter than most shore rods.

Here is a great shot from this week. Gotta love those jumps from sturgeon.

Our good friends at Pro-line Sports heard i was heading to Costa rica for some fishing and hooked me up with some Costa Sunglasses. These glaasses are amazing for both prtection and visibility, yesterday while fishing for sailfish i spotted a sea turtle and dolphins from a far distance and could see much further into the water than anyone else, thanks Al. look for them at your locl tackle store, definately the best glasses i have ever owned.
