Re: hello From Canada

Welcome aboard. I did that for 10 years on the west coast.

Re: hello From Canada

Welcome to the forum, I never did get over the commercial fishing thing, still at it, if only on a part time basis. I don't know if there is a support group for people like us, but I don't think I'll ever quit fishing.

Re: hello From Canada

Welcome, I'm a fellow Canadian currently based in the UK and I elected to moor up in a fishing dock rather than a fancy marina. I see those fishermen go out there in all kinds of weather and I have tremendous respect for anyone in that line of work. Good luck and safe sailing...James

Re: hello From Canada

Hey - I caught a salmon once :-) but welcome to CF anyway. Perhaps we need a "How to catch ....." thread!

Re: hello From Canada

How to catch; you start with a beer in one hand and a fishing pole in the other, then wrap your arms around the pole while balancing the beer and try to light a cigarette. You will get a bite every time!

Re: hello From Canada

Welcome Aboard Cruisers Forum Peter and enjoy...

Used to commercial fish in the late 60's and early 70's in the Fla. Keys for lobster and stone crabs/

A lot warmer there...

Re: hello From Canada

I'm from Canada, grew up on the prairies. My fishing experiences were limited to fresh water lakes in Northern Saskatchewan. The big ones rocked the canoe!! I now own a sailboat and looking forward to fishing in the tropics.

Welcome to CF BigDawg!

An even better way to catch fish is to have a case of beer on deck while being tied up at a Commercial fishing dock. You will have fish for supper. lol

Welcome to CF BigDawg!
I also grew up in the prairies (Alberta) Fished the lakes there for Pike, Perch and Walleye. Moved to the coast in 72, got into Salmon fishing, Bought a Salmon troller in 82 and got out of it in 94. Back to sports fishing in greater comfort.
