Well it is that time of year, the Holidays are over, the retail rush has subsided, and we start to head out on the local salt scene in search of some winter chinook. We had a charter on Monday, Jan 2nd, our first of 2012 and despite the forecast for rain and gale force winds, the morning was stunning.
As the tide turned to the ebb, the bait seemed to disperse and the bite died off. We pulled our crab traps and did well with limits of Dungeness crab. Expect the fishing to pick up this month and some larger fish to show up as the season progresses.
If you are interested in booking a charter, please call Dave at Pacific Angler, 604-872-2204.
If you have a boat and want to learn from the pros, you can sign up for our Local Saltwater Salmon Course where we teach you how to hook salmon in the local waters 12 months a year, with a theory session at Pacific Angler and full day on the water as well.
Here is our 2012 Course Schedule for a list of all our courses and dates.
I am looking forward to some more winter chinook charters and some personal fishing as well.
See you on the water or in the shop,
