    Default Anyone hit Van Harbour lately?

    I'm on the fence about hitting Vancouver this Saturday. Anyone heard anything?

    Yup,

    Was out on Saturday. Had 6 hits, 4 shakers, 1 barely undersized and 1 good sized one that spit the hook. Fished the entire flood along west Van... didn't stay to fish the freighters on the ebb (gets dark too soon). Water was like glass, and considering the 25-30MPH Westerly that went late into Friday night I was shocked at the conditions.

    Kitchen Sink without a flasher just about a Kone Zone seemed to kill it!

    Did drop prawn traps and came away with my limit... with just a 5 hour soak.

    Bird.. here I am thinking what the hell is this guy talking about... spoons? Kone Zones? lol.. took me a bit to realize you're talking about the prawn. They were BC Spot Prawns. Good luck out there.

    lol, I've got the coons out by the anchorage close to Pt. Atkinson. Always worried if I drop em out of sight they will disappear. Did the fish show a preference for spoon size? I lost a few 2 3/4" at Defence islands lately. Wondering if I should bother restocking.
