2015 Nanaimo Reports

Discussion in '2015 Saltwater Fishing Reports' started by Sculpin, Jan 5, 2015.


  1. Yes it was a good day.. until I was setting up my brand new ACE line hauler to pull the traps at the end of the day... 2 idiots fumbling around with a new piece of equipment and I pull the pin. "Ploop" down goes the arm. Aside being a big piss off and a shot to the ego we managed to salvage the day and haul up 800 ft of rope by hand to find a prawn dinner :) Next morning about 10am Smiley and friend show up with a new arm fresh off the press from ACE here in Nanaimo. Thats what you call a class act, and a good crew. Looking forward to next weekend.. Thanks guys!


    PS Going to put a safety wire on this one so it doesn't happen again :cool:

    Sorry about your loss, but, you are not alone in this regard, just talk
    to my next door neighbour. He lost one at Twin Island.

    fogged in, in truth I am only guessing, but they were big enough to have been berried so it makes sense that they were female
    They are born male and change to female as they age.

    I couldn't beat the Pollock off with a stick yesterday, anything I tried I would reel in on of them little brown suckers with all the fins..weird .. never seemed to have that problem out front before, trolling 220 in 600' with bait n spoons..
     
  8. I had the same problem yesterday too. I think the best way to deal with them is to recycle them into the crab trap :D

    I managed one 12 lber between the 1000 cod. I was pulling a grey ghost bucktail behind a flasher. After getting tired of the cod I put on two 6 inch plugs. Still caught a rock cod.lol Saw one other boat had a 16lber. Can't wait till the new recruits start showing in in a couple more weeks.
     
  10. Was out sunday from 8 to 10 am got two salmon at 125' about 1 km off the fingers. I cought on cop car spoon with green glow flasher and the other on chovy with green flasher. Lost my first hit that was on chovy. Nice way to spend the morning. 20150412_094030.jpg 20150412_094030.jpg

    2 keepers and one undersized this afternoon. one just legal and the other was about 16. kitchen sink coyote and army truck hoochie. still tons of those cod out there, been checking the gear every 10-20 mins and about 3/4 of the time at least one line will be dragging one. would probably be a bit more salmon action if a guy could keep the gear in the water more.
