Left the dock around 9am fishing not much later. Had an awful experience with a jelly fish, I was such I washed it's tentacles from my hand but found I had not when I rubbed an eye. No I did not get some one to pee in my eye. Had to be a pirate for an hour - luckily I did not have to a just my junk at the time. Towed most of the tackle box with an anchovy out too between 30-80 feet. All we had to show for it was a hit on the deep line at noon ish that felt good but didn't stick after the first run on a green apex and a hit on the shallow line from something not very big. Went in at 2:30pm. Saw two boat in the distance playing around with net but not much else.

Have fun, Jason

MERCY. One of my alltime childhood fears [size=10pt][size=10pt]JELLYFISH[/size][/size] - at about 13years old had me relentlessly waterskiing... refusing to let go of that rope...from Belcarra 15km up Indian Arm almost all the way to Wigwam Inn...& it wasn't the calmest day out there! (needless to say...my legs were JELLY after that!) I'll i could think was that i didn't want to drop...cause a jelly fish might get me.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but it seems to me, back in the day - there seemed to be red/purple jelly fish everywhere? (i guess my frame of reference was limited to Burrard Inlet, up the Arm... etc...)

A sunny summer's day a few years back, just up the Arm from Deep Cove, I came upon a monster-GLOB of white jellyfish.... at first i thought i boated over a whale or something... so i doubled back... to see what it was...it was something else... kinda wish i had a marine biologist aboard - There were THOUSANDS & thousands of them! Lit up the surface a bright green... down to a depth as far as i could see. (of course, nothing on the hummingbird)

Anyways... thanks for the update BigJay... I'm heading out tomorrow - gonna give Bell Bouy a shot... I'll let ya'll know how we fair.

speaking of those big whites, talked to a guy a berry's today and he was saying that dfo expects a run of
250,000 of them for the harrison and vedder rivers. the usuall run is apparantely 70,000
lets hope he's right. it could be a great sept.

The Harrison Whites are here! Had 3 fish on, one 16# football in the box at the bell before it got too crazy. Newbie buddy kinda got his knuckles in the way on the second one. He'll never do that again :wallbash:. Got a good look at him as he tailwalked about 40' across our stern! Anchovies at 40 & 46 feet. Buzzed down to the T10 but it was just too choppy. There were a few fish caught in the earlier AM, but by the time we got back up to the bell, the wind had picked up there as well, so we headed in to buy $200 (!) :( of gas. Prawn traps were LOADED.
