Spent 2.5 days on the Coast, Bamfield area.
Hali fishing was poor (for us), only managed a 20 and 30lb.
Did get a 80lbish skate, that was kinda cool.
Coho are THICK, tons of feed around, probably got into 8-12 coho in the couple hours we spent on them, good size already too, largest one going 9/10lbs.
My buddy and I limited out on springs after cleaning up on coho, largest being 42lbs :happy:, runners up 25 and 22lbs. The rest were 15-20lbs. We threw back well over a dozen springs in the 8-15lb range.
The big kahuna took us on 300 yard run, right into the 75 yards of dacron on the MR3, after catching up with him he went on a hell bent scream right to shore into the kelp. Man what a hog and by far the highlight of the trip.
I stopped counting at 30 springs, reminded me of a previous year further north.

Lotsa guys fishing over unproductive water as the algae bloom had moved, so that means so did the krill-pilchers-springs etc etc.
The last morning we hooked 5 springs in 40 minutes to cap the trip off. We were the only ones in that "area" too as everyone was fishing where the fish "were," it was awesome.
Caught a mean sunburn and watched a pod of transient killer whales play with and then kill a sea lion on the first day. Very cool to see other than on National Geo. That was a first for me.

Best of luck, I'm sure you'll do well.
It's turning on (or getting better!) pretty much everywhere.
Catching more fish on the inside strait (Georgia) than past years already too.

Thanks for the report!

That's good to hear. Where have you heard? I'm sitting at home dhere in Kelowna debating about bringing my boat to fish on the inside. It's not big enough for the open water (a 12 foot Princecraft Aluminum with 15 HP that I mostly use it to fly fish for pinks close to shore) but I will be in Qualicum Beach for the next 15 days and would love to fish with someone who would be willing to accomodate a decent fellow who will pay for gas, food and other expenses in a better boat east or west coast.
