For those who know how to fish....this is the result from local waters right now...

Fishing is heating up right now. There's plenty of opportunity to catch these babies!

Here are the results on a friends boat on Tuesday and Wednesday...the pic with 2 are from Tuesday, the 4 from Wednesday.

Was out yesterday, had a pink, a good smack on a popular hootchy with a GARGANTUAN hook that didn't stick, and a BIG spring on a 'Chovy that peeled line but didn't get hooked well so went bye bye...

Time to GO FISHIN'!!!!!!!!!

GAME ON!!!!

[Location? Top Secret but in Vancouver... :cheers:

:eek:No word of a lie. GET OUT THERE NOW for SPRINGS. Fishing around Vancouver for Springs is ON FIRE!!! Leave all the gear at home, and make sure you have big hooks on your Anchovy rigs and heavy test. Flashers and Anchovies, don't even think about anything else.

Just had a phone call from another buddy. Limited 3 anglers on board. 21, 23, 23, 27, 19, 29. Broke off 3 and lost 4. Fishing 4 rods!
That's great fishing for Vancouver. Wonder if they've all showed up en mass? NO PINKS either!!!!!

Another report I got earlier tonight... A friend of a friend bagged an 18 and lost a 35-40 lber at the net this morning. They were inexperienced anglers, but regardless, a 35-40lber is a NICE FISH! :thumbup:

Time to go FISHING!!!!

i was out around the bellbuoy yesterday (aug.29) morning fishing with the wife for the 1st time in a long while, we started fishing around 8:30 am and had a great morning, we kept our 4 springs 37,25,18 & 12. the biggest and smallest were whites, all on chovies 30-60' . we also broke 2 other nice ones off (between chovie and flasher 30#leader)and missed a couple of pop offs. i use 30 and 40# leaders, i know i should use only the 40 here but i'm stubborn and don't mind losing the odd 1. i also prefer the smaller hooks and don't have a problem with them and believe i hookup easier with them, #4treble and a 2/0 with the smaller choves and sometimes throw a 1/0 or 2/0 trailer on the larger choves.
cheers and tight lines

hey.

I know the night bite was good last night, VERY good.

It's slowed off somewhat today--yesterday was apparently exceptional.

Boat out there now just boated his 3rd Spring today, has lost 3 others. Has seen about 12-15 fish caught by other boats all day, but it's a weekday and there's not a whole lot of people out there.

Another boat apparently had 4 springs the morning.

Another boat had one on but it went away shortly.

Hoping to get out tomorrow...

went out with my daughter for a couple of hours this a.m. (31st) to the bell buoy, had 1 good hit there and only heard of a couple of fish caught, trolled across and down to the pink appartments with no action, sounds like it was better in the afternoon yesterday hopefully the same happened today, we were home by 10:30.
re: roscoe-pco, i would expect an extreme member would know the regs but i guess not, by the way my #4 trebles ARE pinched.
cheers and tight lines

ferret did I read that right use a #4 treble in front of the other hook----
ITS SINGLE BARBLESS in all waters when fishing for salmon!!!!!
The most popular hooks for fishing anchovies in saltwater is using size 2 trebles then followed by size 1 then size 4. More lower mainland guys use size 4's but on the island it's mostly #2's and #1's. A guy should read the regulations for the area he's fishing to get the right info instead on making uniformed remarks like "ITS SINGLE BARBLESS in all waters when fishing salmon. That's only for freshwater not salt where you can use multiple barbless trebles or singles when fishing salmon.

re singles & trebles in the salt... I think that there is a small triangular area by the Cap where trebles are not allowed. 14th St pier to Prospect light in Stanley park to one of the North poles of the Lions Gate bridge, you can't use trebles, and you can only run 2 singles which have to be smaller than 15mm point to shank, which makes my #5 gammies too big, i think, but I think the rule is really meant to stop snaggers from chucking huge trebles from shore like they used to do over there. I like to run a 3 hook whole anchovie setup with no holder. That would be bending the rules there.

Fishing report: I landed a 22 pounder solo around Sandheads today. 4pm. 65 ft down on a slatter-glo-green hootchie. Was eating it by 6pm. That more than made up for getting skunked Wednesday 5 to 7pm at Q62 (the Bell).

Good job Dog. I once casted pilchard out with three hooks in em for tailor (or blue fish). Not as good as one, however they were conected to the shank of the next. # 1 is the best it the anchvies are large enough.
Have fun, Jason
Again I saw magician clean up... like he had an electroshocker on his boat, fish jumping on... amazing.
Got all of em in too... my god.

We were out Thursday,
Fishing has cooled down some what compared to last week, water was choppy and blowing 24 off the airport. Still, a few fish were caught. Pt.Grey to QA, QB were the best spots yesterday producing a few springs in the 20's and a few pinks. Fish still appear to be 80 to 50 ft. range with herring or chovies the best bait, although white and green spackle/back hootchies brought in a couple. Any time now the big whites should pick up and that load of pinks should start to load up better. Hope the wind stays down to give us all more enjoyable time on the water.
