The Vancouver Boat Show begins tomorrow, Jan 17 and runs through until Sunday Jan 22. Although STS does not have a booth this year, we do have several sponsors that will be at the show and STS Guide Doug Elias will be at the show representing Pure Fishing (Penn, Abu Garcia, Fenwick). If you’re looking for a specific product drop by and see Doug at the Harbour Chandler Booth or Stevenson Marine. Doug will be rotating between these two booths.
Speaking of trade shows STS will be attending several shows in Alberta, USA and our own Abbotsford Boat & Sportsman Show. Drop by and say hello and meet some of our newest guides and of course our veterans like Tom, Thomas, Doug and Vic. Hope to see you at one of these shows.
If you’re looking to upgrade your electronics, this is a great time to find some discounts on the latest and greatest. For those of you who fish the Fraser for Sturgeon the new Humminbird Helix has really taken off. This unit offers amazing detailed bottom structure reading and side scan sonar. Drop by and see Don at the show, Humminbird will have most of the new 2018 models on display at the Humminbird booth.
We have not been out on the water fishing this past week but we have been out working the Fraser using our side scan sonar for various projects that we are involved in.
These fish will begin to move around and look for food once the water temperatures begin to warm in early spring. This is also a great time to get out on the water and take advantage of these hungry feeding fish. The Eulachon ( small bait fish) will begin to migrate into the Fraser by mid to late March with peak migration around middle to the end of April.
Steelhead season has had a slow start, the Vedder River is producing some nice fish but anglers are really having to work for each and every bite. Hopefully this fishery will pick up over the next few weeks. If your looking to get out on the water and catch a few salmon, our Vancouver winter saltwater fishery is in full swing. STS Guide Doug Elias has been ut several times over the past few weeks and has produced several nice fish. Although this fishery is a bit inconsistent, we do have some great days out on the water in January through to March.
Over the next few weeks our 2018 bookings will increase substantially, we still have some great dates available for both salmon and sturgeon charters so if you are looking for that adventure of a lifetime, please give us a call or shoot us n e-mail.
Hope you all have a great week.
