August will be prime and big fish too. Untill may 15th we are only allowed springs (which will be the only things around in May) between 45 and 67cm's (excluding hatches) and by May there will be quite a few mature fish swimming around that will have to be released..... probably worse for wear, not too worth it IMO.
The halibut will be around in May, sooke is good but not the greatest spot. If you want a serious day and some meat in the freezer head the extra hour and a bit to Port Renfrew, weather permitting you can get to the banks for some unreal halibut, gound fish, springs (no slot limit there) and the coho usually start showing on the outside around then aswell (smaller fish) and ya get them while hali fishin on a buzz bomb 5-15ft under the boat :thumbup:...... till ya get bored.
I would head to Renny.... my :2cents:
