The fishing was pretty good this past week so nothing to complain about there. The weather has been a bit trickier though, and again it looks like we are in for a mix of sun, rain, and different winds in the days ahead. If you can pick a day where the wind wants to cooperate its definitely worth getting out there.
As usual, the fish have been close to the bottom as that is where the bait is hiding. The fish have had a mix of herring and anchovies in their stomachs so the 3.0 and 3.5 size spoons have been working well. Hootchies have also been working well and this should be no surprise as the slender profile is very similar to that of an anchovy. Gibbs Skinny G is also an excellent choice when the fish are on anchovies. Always remember to check out the stomach contents of your fish and adjust your presentation as needed.
Prawning has been consistent and crabbing has been so so, with a few pockets of keeper size crab here and there. If you have some time off this December, give us a call and book a winter chinook fishing trip. It’s a great way to spend a winter day and the chinook and prawns are always popular on the dinner table.
See you in the shop or on the water,
