May 10th 2011 fishing report

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today was not a very nice day on the water on the South end of Bowen island. It was howling south east, we headed out for a few hours anyway to see if we could get lucky. We got lucky and hit a nice 15 or 16lb Spring at 123ft on bait, we hit nothing else for the rest of the day, but it was not easy fishing when it was blowing over 20 knots. The few boats that did get out mainly got a crack at one. We didn’t stay out long as it looked like the wind was only getting worse. Did well prawning again, hopefully the wind comes down which it’s supposed to and we should get back to doing what we were a few days ago. Nobody fished the Gulf islands as it was too rough. Good luck till next time we’re out quite abit in the next week so should have some great pics and reports to come.

May 8th 2011 vancouver fishing report

Another decent week around Vancouver with the gulf islands really started to come on. With the weather being better this week people have been out on the water a bit more and more fish have been hit. Howe sound has died off a bit but not many people have been fishing the sound since the South end of Bowen island has started to produce. There seems to be good days followed by a slower day. One reason for this is the killer whales have come by a few times this week so have a few big groups of dolphin. The salmon have generally been caught between 100 – 150ft on a mixture of spoons, hootchies, and bait. The fish that have been caught have been 14 to 20lbs real nice fish for this time of year. The Gulf islands from North of Naniamo to Thrasher has been nothing but excelent. Mainly fishing offshore 2 to 4 miles many boats have been limiting out with fish between 15 – 25lbs and it should continue with the South end of Bowen getting better also as the fish move down. Most of the fish over the other side of the Strait have been caught between 120 – 180 ft on spoons and hootchies. Crabbing and prawning remain good. Good luck till next time
