What a beautiful day to be on the water in the Strait of Georgia. We left Horseshoe Bay at 1130am and headed out of Howe Sound to the South end of Bowen island. We got our gear down around noon 4 miles of Roger Curtis. We trolled around for an hour or so and didn’t see much. There was no wind and the Stait of Georgia was flat calm
we headed over to Gabriolla Island. On the way over we saw Dolphin to make the ride more enjoyable. We got out gear down at 3pm at the Grande we then saw a big bunch of birds and 8 to 10 bald eagles
feeding on a school of big herring that was on the surface. We started to show feed on the bottom as we were nearing Whale bone Bay. We then started to get quite abit of action
with bottom fish we ended the day with 9 rock cod
, 2 flounder, 1 lingcod, 5 pacific cod, and we did get a nice Spring salmon
. It was a great day on the water with plenty off fish probably would of done better for salmon but there were just to many bottom fish. We stopped fishing at 7pm to get back before dark
. On the way back we saw the Dolphin in the middle of the straight again. The crab traps
did well with a good number of large Dundeness crab. The fishing should just get batter hopefully the weather stays like it was today and we’ll be able to get across the straight and to fish off the South end of Bowen Island. If you have any questions feel free to call until next time good luck.
