Just curious what some of you are pulling down there boatwise and in what vehicle? Living on Kits Point I see lots of boats (decked out with riggers/mounts) getting dragged to and from and always wonder "is that someone from BCFR????"

Just thought I would ask......then I know whether or not to throw a friendly and sarcastic "gesture" ;) out of frustration that I am not on the water. :peace:


Me....tall, short brown hair, devastatingly handsome, generally wearing flip flops, shorts and likely en route to or from the winestore on York. :thumbup:

Pippen, try to come up with a good obsessed fishermans greeting gesture, like the two hands a couple feet apart, like we do on the water, meaning "got anything".

Best Regards. Dog... Towing one of the worlds most beautiful boats. A 16' double eagle. one manual Scotty. Beauty Evinrude and Johnson on the back. All from 1980. Cooler on the drivers seat for good vis and cold bevs handy.

Good idea.....until someone doesn't know what I am doing, is frustrated at the lack of fish and I get "two hands a couple of feet apart" with "middle fingers" saluting the ole "got nothing". :confused:

Thanks Jim!! Unfortunately I am currently "without" boat as I sold mine about 2 years ago. I have been looking down in the US for a boat and the broker I use has told me to still hold off until the fall....the wait is killing me!! Have found some great deals that I wanted to jump on and made a few offers which were "denied". It seems as though although boat prices are low compared to up here that people "need" to get their investment out of the boats they are selling.......which "I guess" is understandable. :confused:

A buddy and I (looking at co-ownership) have been going back and forth on a 26' Pursuit in California and hoping the owner meets us in the middle as they are quite desperate to get rid of it. We definitely "low-balled" as per the broker and have been back and forth a few times on counter offers.

Hopefully I will have something for "winter fishing" but definitely next summer. Due to the fishing locally I have been letting the cards fall as they may.

Will definitely let you know once things are "signed"; "even though" you are associated with Ortho. :peace: ;D

We always share a few fishin' lies at the 'buck in the am.. ;)......I am almost tolerable by 8am.....arn't I? ::)
If you are not in a hurry, Pippen, I would really take your time with the boat purchase, even though the dollar is starting to sag a bit, and might continue to do so. A friend of mine recently bought a 48 ft. sailboat for less than 1/2 the local price and had it shipped by truck to seattle then sailed her to Vancouver. Landed in Vancouver and been turning heads ever since......JUst keep your eyes open, there is always a deal somewhere..............You got any kites for the park?......Ortho 8)

I'm riding a blue cherokee sport with a 17.5" stratacraft, maroon trim and will be getting you out as soon as fastball seasons over next weekend. I hope some fish start showing up as i've got one legal spring in about 8 trips this year

I launch there with a silver Range Rover and a blue Hydra Sports. In case you hadn't heard... the springs are at Pt. Grey.

There's a local guide on a Mako called Predator and he sent this in his latest update. You can reach him at the number listed at the end of the following which is his report. Since it's his report I thought I should put that plug in there for him;

***********************************************************************

Hello Fellow Anglers

The Chinook have hit the Fraser!!!!

This morning those of us fishing off Pt. Grey experienced a VERY good Chinook bite that lasted all morning. Most of the fish came in between 15 and 30 lbs, but there were a few larger ones, and I got a report of one that may have reached well into the 40's. Most boats hooked into several good fish, several were broken off by inexperienced anglers, and I think boxing 3 large fish was about average. It really was good fishing. We had an "average" morning, boating two "reds" of 16.5, and 21 lbs, and a 26 lb white in addition to releasing a couple undersized Jacks.

Most fish were getting hit on anchovies between 50 and 80 feet, but the odd one hit a hootchie. These fish will often take lures, so it is always a good idea to pop out the odd spoon or hootchie at times. this can be especially true when fishing between T-10 and Sandheads. While the fish were at Pt. Grey this weekend, they may also have been further South, and if the bte dies at Pt. Grey, I'd be looking to T-10 and Sandheads to find the next concentration of fish.

I'd expect to see the action to continue for a few days at least (since the fish just arrived), and it could even pick up further as we often find the best fishing off the mouth of the Fraser around the full or new moon phases (next weekend). We may even see the action continue on a steady pace right into September, as the West Vancouver net pens come on-line this summer with 3-yr Chinook returning. This could occur in late August or early September, so we may just find that we will experience several waves of Chinook arriving for the rest of the summer. It's about time we had some good local fishing!

Of course many of you have heard that the sockeye fishery was closed almost as soon as it was opened. I guess the early fish arrived in larger than expected numbers, but the summer fish (the ones we target) came in much lower. I don't expect to have any changes occur now, so we can put to rest any hope of a sockeye fishing this summer

I am already quite booked through the next week or so, but do have a few openings early this week, so the timing could be great for those who can take advantage of it. At the present time, I am open Mon. Aug 11th (am, pm), Tues. Aug 12th (am, pm), Wed. Aug 13th (am, pm), and potentially Thurs. Aug 14th (am....but I have to be back at the dock by mid-day). My next opening would then be Wed. Aug 20th (pm), and I am also open Aug 21st and Aug 22nd (am, pm).

As always, feel free to pass this information along to any associates whom may appreciate the report. If you have any questions, or wish to book a charter, e-mail me [email protected]), or call me at (604) 329 - 8642.

Yellow 19' fibreform behind a beige GMC 2500. It's my father inlaw's rig but I'm usually with him.

Nice to see the charter reports but I'll have more confidence that the fish are in in bigger numbers once members on this and like boards start reporting better success. That said, we will try to get out thursday morning to test the waters. Let's hope we get some action.

For the record...there were 18 boats fishing the BellBuoy Sunday morning. Of the 15 boats 13-14 were guide boats I recognized. . If you weren't on the water you missed out on a helluva Spring Bite. Most were reds from 17-45 lbs. Several were TYEES and every guide boat had 3 or more Springs on board. Anchovies were the most popular lure of choice. If you didn't hook a half dozen springs or more, you obviously need to work on your gear/tackle/technique.

The Orcas came by Monday morning and it was game over. This morning (Tuesday) many guide boats were on the water from Sandheads to Atkinson looking for the fish but they are nowhere to be found today as they were on Sunday.

We can only hope that we are so lucky as to have another few days with a fishery like this around Vancouver this fall.
