By March 18, 2011 Uncategorized No Comments

Welcome to 2011 it’s that time of year to start hitting the water.  This year i have a new boat and have moved up to a 31ft pursuit.  In the last month there has been some good fishing in the vancouver area.  In English bay, at the Capilano river, has been the most productive fishing. From Dundarave to the Marker right off the Capilano river has produced some nice winter Springs with a few undersize Springs as well. The Gulf islands have produced some nice fish also at Thrasher and at the Grande with someone getting 4 legal at Porlier pass a few days ago.  The west side of Bowen has been a bit slower than usual, but in the last month there have been 300 Dolphin in Howe Sound, a great sight to see but not so good for catching fish.  Defence islands in Howe sound has had some good days with the biggest fish being 33lbs to date.  The weather hasn’t been that great but with the forcast looking to be better. A lot more people will be hitting the water in the next few weeks and if we have fishing like we did last spring, it will be a great couple of months.  By mid April we should be off the south end of Bowen island and if it’s half as good as last year there will be fun for everyone.  Most fish have been hit on spoons and a few on bait.  The crabbing and prawning remain very good and should continue.  Tight lines, give me a call if you’d like any info on anything be glad to help you out in any way i can.  Looking forward to a great 2011
