Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

I head up there for some Salmon and bottomfishing now and again. It's a great area to fish. I haven't been up there yet this year, probably heading up in August. I don't know if the Salmon fishing has picked up, but the Haibut fishing has been good.

If you are interested in general info on fishing the area, do a search of the site. Search for Telegraph cove or Pt. McNeil and I'm sure you'll find some good stuff.

Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

Fishing has been good for Hali's and OK for springs

Last weekend the wife and I picked up two hali's 25,12 and two springs, 18, 32. Caught these on anchovie, white hootchie and......a green glow Bait Buster :eek:

The back side of Malcome, Lizard Pt and such have been producing some fish, but it is not fast. I have not heard much about West Craycroft and that area, but if there is fish in Hardy, McNeill and Campbell River, then they should be there as well. The weather has been crappy, so getting out has been fun!!! It appears that everything is about 2-3 weeks behind.

I will be out all this weekend, and will post a report on Monday.

Cheers

SS

Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

If you are looking to tye into some huge Halibut , go right across Johnstone Straight to the mainland from Telegraph cove, look for some humps on your fish finder & chart,thats where they will be, But be carefull with the winds as it is a fair run there & back to port

Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

Go across to Malcolm Island and fish the "North Shore" which is the area between Donegal Head and Lizard Point (check out your charts).

You can also fish the area either side of Mitchell Bay.

Be careful of the currents as you go through Weyton Passage especially between Stubs Island and the Pearce Group and then Stubbs and Donegal head.

You can also fish off of Craycroft Island in Blackfish sound in front of double bay.

be careful of the Nortwesterlies that blow up in the afternoons as they make some pretty good chuck especially on clear sunny days.

Watch the reg's in a triangle that goes from Donegal Head to Stubbs, there is an area of no bottom fishing.

Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

Has anyone ever fished this area in a kayak? Or anywhere for that matter for larger fish like salmon? I may be kayaking in Johstone straight later this summer and was wondering if it would work in a kayak. I wouldn't want to get tipped over while handling a large salmon and loose all my gear.

Re: TELAGRAPH COVE

Barbless,
in California kayak fishing is the new craze in sport fishing. You can definatly catch big fish from a kayak, guys in Southern Cal. have caught marlin from kaykaks. Sport Fish BC even had an episode where Mark was fishing for halibut from a kaykak. There even a line of special rod just for kayak fishing, the have a ring for a lanyard on them if it goes in the drink. Pretty sure there's a magizine about it too.
have fun, Jason
