May has always been kind of an in between month, between GREAT prawning in April, before the commercial prawners get here in the 2nd week of May, and June when the fishing really starts heating up. BUT, not this May! The halibut & lingcod fishing have been over the top GOOD! Early salmon fishing was much better than recent years both inside & outside waters produced lots of fish. Inside Esperanza - Low Rock, The Pins and the eastern shore of Centre Is. were all hot for winter Springs. In Nootka - Wash Rocks, Burdwood, Boston Pt. and the northwest side of Strange Is. just before going through Princesa Channel on the Kendrick side there is a pair of humps that hold lots bait & winter spring. Outside is crazy good for migrating Chinook already when the weather permits. Any where on the Highway is working especially at the “T”. Ferrer Pt. & at the red can on outer Bajo Reef are already producing Chinook up to 25lbs.
It would appear that the projections for HUGE Salmon runs to & off the West Coast of Vancouver Island are accurate!!
“Come Join in the Fun & Catching”
“This is an email sent to a party who was inquiring about an Albacore Tuna fishing trip. They booked in less than 10 minutes after reading it”
The Booking for Albacore Tuna Charters have gone CRAZY!!
That’s a GOOD THING. As presented in our last newsletter: with the El Nino predictions in mid-July off West Coast Vancouver Island assures us that the TUNA will be here this summer.
TUNA Charter Sharing: we have two trips looking to partner with other people to fill Tuna Fishing / Catching Charters.
