With the unsettled weather typical for this time of the year we haven’t heard a lot from the local saltwater. A few boats have gone out in search of the first winter chinook but other than a few undersized fish there hasn’t been much to report. Prawning has been the most productive part of this fishery so far.
Chinook fishing should pick up as we get into December. You really have to hunt for these fish, and that can be a challenge, but when you do find them they are eager to bite. When the sun is out, you can have some spectacular days out there making it all worth the effort. While you are waiting for the sunshine and the fish to arrive have a look at last weeks report where we recommended our favourite spoons and flashers for this fishery.
If you would like to book a trip for winter chinook, some BC spot prawns, and some dungeness crab, give us a call at the shop and book some prime dates for late December and all of January, February, and March.
