    Are there any good prawning areas near Port Hardy, or Port Mc Neil? I have had luck on the mainland side, but never North Island. Any suggestions would be appreciated! D

    OVERVIEW – Salmon fishing was GOOD this past weekend from Port Renfrew to Race Rocks for Coho. There were very, very few big springs around and not too many smaller winter springs. Most of the salmon being caught are wild and/or fin clipped coho. Halibut fishing was GOOD this past week...

    Fished from a boat in the lower vedder for something different. Fished jigs with prawn, jigs with roe, jigs, spoons, spinners, roe...nothing but a couple coho chasing spinner close to the boat. But, I did hook into an unexpected snag in an area I had been drifting. My float dipped very slowly...

    Was out at the mouth of the Cap today, dropped the crab and prawn traps early and was fishing by 8:00AM. Had two or three hits, and then right at the marker I got smacked by this 20lb-er. The boats were pretty thick in there, so I punched the throttle and headed out to the shipping lane...

Most of the salmon being caught are wild coho but some fin clipped coho are also showing up in the mix. Halibut fishing was...

Sockeye Fever has hit the lower Island although the numbers of sockeye caught this past week are down. There haven’t been too many big springs caught but they are still around.

    I am thinking of getting an anchor puller to lift up my prawn traps. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on doing this? I've heard of people tearing or even ripping their traps right off with this method and am trying to avoid this by doing it right. I am hoping I can use the same buoy that I...

    OVERVIEW – Salmon fishing was MUCH BETTER this past weekend from Port Renfrew through East Sooke. The rain during the week has moved the fish along in their migrations. There are sockeye just about everywhere and the season opened for them this past Friday. It should be a real good week coming...

    Is it worth dropping the prawn traps off Point Roberts? It looks nice and deep off the bell and lighthouse park. PM me if you have any knowledge of this area.

    Next time I'm at one of my favorite lakes that I think would hold a decent population of Crayfish I thought that I would take the prawn trap along and try to catch some Crayfish. Now I don't think the catching part would be that difficult but I've never tried cooking any before. I'm just...
