This week on the water

'Spring' Salmon bit well this past week in our regular offshore tack. Early Columbia River runs of Chinook (King) salmon provided some great action on bait and rubber. We took advantage of calm sea conditions to make a full day trip up to the bottom fishing zone north of Tofino that yielded plenty of Lingcod and Rockfish. We dropped the anchor on the way home and managed a nice batch of Halibut. There will be fish and chips...

The snow line was back down on the mountains this week and the swell was pumping with what will likely be one of the last big swells of the winter. We took shelter inside the Clayoquot Sound and managed some nice salmon and a few rockfish for the kids. At one point we played an extra large salmon for some time, unfortunately after bringing the fish back in from being deep in the backing the hook popped out... The next few weeks is peak Spot prawn season prior to the commercial opening in mid May. The weekend and coming week is looking great weather wise and we do still have some trips available.

Lingcod are open again as of April 1st
and our first trip of the year did not disappoint. Focusing on the reefs west of Flores Island proved productive and we look forward to another solid season. Yelloweye and Vermillion Rock fish in addition to halibut are in the mix on our bottom fishing day trips often resulting in solid catch.  The offshore conditions were beautiful over the last week allowing us to fish salmon in some of our offshore tacks.
