Well, as predicted, things did perk up a bit this week! Some anglers hooked some chinook up in Howe Sound and there were a few chinook taken in Vancouver Harbor as well. Productive setups have been glow flashers with a 6 foot leader and a glow spoon, like a Pesca 2.5 or 3.5 in It’s Not, Bogart, and Leprechaun. Keep your gear close to the bottom, look for bait, and cover lots of water.

Prawning has also been decent but it is set to close soon, so make sure you check out the regulations, especially if you prawn in Howe Sound.
Howe Sound Prawning Closure: From January 1st to March 31st – Subareas 28-1 to 28-5 (Howe Sound) will be closed to prawning. Please see: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/species-especes/prawnclos-fermcrevette-eng.html for complete details on closures with maps.
Todd, one of our guides, was out this week and here is a picture of the bounty. Some nice chinook and some prawns! Crabbing has also been good in the harbor.

Take a break from the Christmas hustle and bustle, book a winter chinook charter for some wintertime fishing action. The seas are often flat calm, the fish fight hard, and they are some of the finest eating salmon of the year.
