Youfish.tv

For about a year and half now, my Facebook page has been filled with clips from youfish.tv.

The site was developed as a place for fishermen and fishing industries alike to all join together and share their stories from around the globe, as well as for hosts to have a place where they can share their episode content for people to come back to and enjoy for years to come. I am one of those fishermen who's used the site to upload hours and hours of my own video content to, and I get a thrill from seeing how my viewers love to relive those experiences with me.

The site has so much potential, and it is my wish that we spread the word, so that countries across the world can share in this pastime that we all love. So record your videos on your phone or camera, capture the fish that gave you the struggle of your life, and be a part of this new online world. And if you're not able to fish yourself, you can indulge in the fish stories that so many others have shared.

Enjoy,

Gary

Tribute to a Friend

I'd like to use this post to say thank you, and goodbye to an old and very dear friend that passed away last night. Glenn worked with us for many years as our accountant, but by no means did the friendship end there. Glenn had a passion for fishing, and we shared some wonderful days on the water together. His quiet demeaner didn't hide his love for a good story, or his ability to tell one. He was a humble, hardworking man. He was a kind, intelligent and genuine person, and he will be truly missed by our Nice Fish team. 

Fish on, my friend.

The Secret with Luck

When you hear me say that catch line at the end of every show, do you really know what that means? You might think that it's easy for me to recite 'Luck Is An Attitude' because who wouldn't have a good attitude when they tend to do alright catching fish. But there's so much more to having good luck on the water. 

I was once told, 'luck is simply opportunity meets preparedness.' What that means to me is that if I happen to have the opportunity to be on the water, I plan to be prepared with the knowledge I need to succeed. That means knowledge of the area I'm fishing, knowledge of the bait and lures I'm using, and knowledge of the type of fish I'm targeting. All of those things combined will usually turn up a pretty great day of fishing! It's not because I'm a lucky guy, it's because anyone who goes out there prepared to take on a challenge will likely be feeling pretty positive about it! And for those who aren't quite sure yet, it's not that hard to obtain the right knowledge-many tackle shops in your area are happy to fill you in on what's working, what's being caught and where to go. You just need to have the attitude of a person eager to succeed.

Summer Recap - Home is Where the Heart Is

Summer has always been the busiest season in the life of a fisherman. Summer means early mornings and stories over the barbecue as the sun fades, it means screaming reels and excited highs that can only mean a big fish was just landed and for us at Nice Fish, Summer also means we get to travel, meet new people, and take a little piece of action home with us, as we capture the best moments on camera.
This summer, the Nice Fish boat and I were settled at our home away from home, on the beautiful RV resort at Pedder Bay Marina, in Sooke, BC. It's a place where everyone shares the same love for fishing and it doesn't matter what the time of day is. 
The getaways were fewer than other years, but we did film with a few new guides this Summer, including Max Fish out of Ucluelet, BC, and our friends at Vancouver Island Lodge, which is a brand new Sooke resort. In addition, we were invited to the grand opening of Cabela's in Nanaimo, where I met fans of the show and signed autographs, while rehashing tales of shows gone by. It was a lovely end to a lovely Summer, and I couldn't appreciate more what a beautiful place we live in, here on Vancouver Island.
