It's great to see the Coho and Pinks in the mix. The Chinook are ranging from loads of undersize to mid 20s with a few in the high 20s. They are full bellies and very powerful, most are fiesty fighter. 3.5'' spoons seem to work best, with the Pink Sink and white (The ghost) being the favourite. And Anchovies with the green glow or Watermelon being the hot heads.
Ling fishing is very good when the winds aren't blowing us around..

Get out and wet the gear!

A great Spring for Springs You can't talk to anyone who has a boat, about how good the salmon fishing in the area is. It seems if you have a hook on and drop it in the water, you're going to get into fish. The ranges are a l...
Good numbers of Chinooks hanging around. We have not been fishing the Nanaimo area, because of the great fish at Thrasher Rock. A few of our fishing buddies have been fishing the Nanaimo area and getting into some fish, when their boats w...
