  • was out a few hours this morning and had a hit early on a bit west of the bell at around 60 ft on an anchovy, but lost it right by the boat.. Looked to be in low 10s. Other than that, just a few shakers. hope others had better luck.

    • I am heading out to the T10 or Bellbouy on Friday morning. By the looks of this forum it looks pretty freaking slow out there. Any other new fishing reports?

      • Was just in Horseshoe Bay having a snack before getting the ferry en route to Tofino and David Korsch/ Predator came in with some guests with just two smaller fish. From the distance I couldn't tell if they were smaller springs or coho.

        • Lots of shakers working the beaches along English Bay on the flood-more than I've ever seen in more than 30 years of living here.

            • Out today off west van, cap to point Atkinson. No hits for me. Ran white glow hoochies between 60 and 40 feet. Marked some fish near the mouth of the cap but that was it. I was fishing mid tide so that might explain the no hits. Didn't see any nets out in the 5 hours I was there.

                      • ya I'll be out at t10 tomorrow as well in a buddies boat. I think we'll start at the bell early in the morning and head to t10 for the ebb and low slack. Will be checking this forum on my phone so i'll post any real time updates (hopefully there are some) and appreciate anyone else out there doing the same.

                          • I know Peahead has already talked about and posted some photos from August 26th, but I thought I would add a few to the forum. Assuming that I can figure out the buttons above as they are all BLANK! (Yes, in both IE Explorer and Firefox.)

                            Well, that seems to have worked

                            OK, photos are kind of backwards here - The last one of me with the small Chinook caught on the Tomic Plug (a 503 if I remember correctly, a UV Purple Haze color), was the first fish taken that morning - about 5 minutes after setting the gear.

                            The second last photo of me shows my second fish and the third fish of the day. Greg rigged a standard Anchovy teaserhead and flasher combo for that one, plus all the other fish caught that day.

                            The second photo is back at Greg's dock - that's me teasing a seal with one of our catch - he damn near jumped in the boat about 3 seconds later!

                            First photo is back on the fishing grounds - it is the 5th fish caught and also the biggest. We let Greg have that one after he let the two of us catch all the other fish. (THANKS GREG!!!)

                            - -

                            For those who haven't heard, I'm back living in Richmond now having retired from guiding due to health reasons. I'm living on a disability pension and doing quite well. If anyone needs a deckhand for a day I still love to get out fishing - give me a call.

                            • I was out again this evening from 3:00 to 7:45pm. Same results as last night. Only one jack around 4 pounds landed. Did not see any fish caught although I heard about some that were caught earlier in the day before we got out. We fished the bell area. I think some of the fish were caught out around the T-10.

                              • Glad to hear you're doing well Sushi Hunter. I wondered where your Nootka advice and reports went as I always appreciated them. Take Care.
