BEST KEPT SECRET ON THE WEST COAST OF VANCOUVER ISLAND
The Salmon Have Arrived:
Yes we have GREAT Success in catches of Halibut, Ling Cod & other bottom fish.
But, the Springs/Kings/Chinook were few and far between over the past few wks.
That has all changed. It’s as if the Salmon Switched to the ON Position.
Beano Creek, Maquinna Point have turned on in Nootka Sound.
Rosa Harbour, Garden Pt and the World Famous Ferrer Pt are ALL RED HOT!
As per normal well rolled Anchovies is at the top of the list for Catching.
Coho Killers, Small Coyote & Lighthouse lures are close 2nds
Coho and Chinook are also showing up in GOOD Number on the Highway.
The “T”, Potatoes, Glory Hole, Esperanza Reef, The Guitar, & Pins are all holding lots of bait & Salmon.
If you need to look at a chart or get GPS coordinates to these locations
stop by our Tackle shop and we will help out with that.
Fishing deep is the key to success on the outside combined with some decent weather.
Bigger spoons, 6 inch, Trolled at approx.. 2.5mph work well.
Titan, Coyote, Lighthouse & Tomic Spoons all work well on the outside.
Colours: 602, Pilchard, Cop Car, Kitchen Sink, Live Image Green & Blue, Green Herring & Nasty Boy
ALL on GLOW spoons work best.
Since we started Charter Boat Fishing in early April the Halibut in the
35 to 60Lb fish are over the top plentiful. This 5 to 6yr. old regiment
of fish are very abundant and are remaining close inshore as a
result of ALL the bait that is at the mouth of Both Esperanza Inlet and
Nootka Sound. X large herring on a spreader bar or off the downrigger
Is working best.
These fast growing fish are on nearly every rock pile near the mouths of Esperanza & Nootka.
Typical catches are 12 to 24Lbs. But 30lbs are on the cleaning tables daily.
The New F.F. 10in. Swim Baits with a 12-24oz head and Mega Bite Swim Tail Jigs are the baits proving to be the most productive.
