Fishing report June 12th

Great day on the water today in vancouver waters. We left the dock in Horeshoe bay at 7 oclock in the morning flat calm and sunny. We baited the crab traps on the way out we already had a few in there from the day before so a great start to the day. A nice 15 minute boat ride down the West van shoreline looking at all the multi million dollar homes as we have our morning coffee. We started fishing off Ambleside beach we had 3 hits in the next hour or so landing 1 nice Coho. Then we moved down the shorline more off Dundarave and had a chance at 4 more coho only landing 1 more. Not the best ratio but coho are like that some times 2 for 7 it should only get better if it does not rain each flood tide should bring a few more coho in with some springs in there as well. A boat beside us got about a 12lbs spring. We trolled the West van shoreline till about 1130 then cruised back to the crab traps picked up a few more crab and back to the dock. Not a bad day on the water great people, a bunch of crab, quite abit of action salmon wise, and 2 nice hatchery coho for the barbeque. If  possible fish this area during the week, it is better than the weekend to stay away from the crowds. The Gulf islands have still been ok some boats have been in the right spot at the right time and have done very well while a boat half a mile away gets nothing we’d still love to see the fish move inshore more so it’s in a more consentrated area. T10 there has been a few Springs taken which is off the middle arm of the Fraser river. Till next time cheers Mark
