This week on the water
The 'Tyee' salmon are here! The first 30 plus pounder of the year came in this past weekend, Johnny Nikuforuk on the 'Mega Bite' pulled in a 34 pounder to win top honors at the BC mining industry 'Hooked on Miracles' fundraising derby for the BC Children's Hospital. The Long beach tack has remained the sportfishing destination of choice however zones along the outside edge of Tofino Sound have produced great results too. Nothing like fishing the 'rocks'!
June 21st, 2016
Large schools of herring and needlefish down off of Long beach continue to attract feeding salmon and halibut to the area. Humpback whales have been present the past couple days, always a great indication of a productive zone. Low swell and a light variable weather pattern continue to lead to comfortable offshore conditions. A strong westerly did keep us to the calm waters of Clayoquot Sound last Monday however we managed to pick up a few nice salmon including one of the largest of the year.
June 11th, 2016
Fishing has been steadily improving as of late and the salmon are getting bigger week by week. Coho opened on June 1st however we are yet to see our first on the 'Red Sky'. We've been starting to pick salmon up mid water during the past couple days indicating that the Chinook are coming up off the bottom to forge on Herring schools higher in the water column. June is prime Halibut season, our biggest keeper of the year came in recently measuring in at 130 cm, that's right around 70 pounds! We still have some dates available if you want to get in on the action.
