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

The fishing in vancouver has picked up a bit in the last few days since the last report. The South end of Bowen island has started to produce, not in great numbers, but most boats are coming home with at least one nice Spring salmon. The weather still has been a problem with rain and wind it is the end of April so Spring in vancouver has to get here soon and give us the weather we’re used to at this time of year. Most people are fishing the South end of Bowen island now but a few fish have been hit up Howe Sound and on the West side of Bowen island for the few that have gone there. The Gulf islands have started to be better also from fishing right off Thrasher rock to fishing a few miles off the rock. I will say it again hopefully the weather starts to be like the weather we’re used to in Vancouver at this time of year and warm up stop raining and we can get back to the fishing we’re used to. The crabbing and prawning remains great now just need the vancouver weather to start to be nice and we will be out most days chartering the vancouver waters. Good luck till next time.
