Three weeks since the Salmon Enhancement Derby! $ 35,745 Raised- Yes it is all about THE FISH


Hello {tag:firstname},





Three weeks since the Salmon Enhancement Derby!

$ 35,745 Raised- Yes it is all about THE FISH

 The fishing just keeps getting BETTER!!

Coho/Silver are very PLENTIFUL & Huge. Average weight 14.5lbs. we have had several 19.5lb on the cleaning tables with lots of talk about 20+lbs being caught.

A couple of GOOD things to Know:

In general, the Coho are deeper than normal. So Fish/Catch between 50- 110 ft. this is inside between Centre Is. & Double Is. Use dummy flashers off your cannon ball setting your release clip up about 6ft. Anchovies, Coho Killers & King Candy Glow White Anchovy all are working well.

Why Dummy Flasher- the answer is simple. Coho are the wildest fighting Salmon out there. Most are well over 12lbs so they pack some power in their twisting, jumping, rolling fight. With the flasher not in the game your opportunity goes up by 50% on boating the fish. Most off these Coho are still Chrome bright & Very Feisty.

At Flood tide the Glory Hole in front of Catala Is. and Saltery Bay Seaward are producing well. 20ft down with the same bait with at least 3mph. speed- THEN HOLD ON!!!

2016 Season has been the BEST YEAR ever.

Yes, after serving the Cruising and Fishing Public for 24 Years this is the BEST SEASON EVER on a number of fronts.

*Our existing customer base continues to be loyal to our slogan “Service is our Business”

*Many customers who had in the past fished the Tahsis/Nootka Sound/Esperanza Inlet area found us.

*Lots of New Customers from near & far Discovered the Fantastic Fishing/Catching out of Tahsis & it’s services.

*The Esperanza area in & off shore is the BEST of the BEST Fishing on the entire West Coast of Vancouver Is. (WCVI)

*Day by Day, Week by Week, Month by Month the CPU (catch per unit of effort) in and off Esperanza is the HIGHEST on WCVI. DFO creel surveys support this FACT.

*It also helped when the season started the US Dollar was $1.30. It still remains at $1.25

*It also helps that the variety of fish to be caught HERE from Halibut, Ling Cod, Salmon & Hundreds of species of ground fish are generally in GOOD Abundance.

*It Also Helped when we got the reputation of: “If you are going to fish out of Westveiw Marina (with your own boat or on an All-inclusive Fishing/Catching Package/Charter)
