Ran out to rats nose today and it was very slow for us. One keeper Chinook and about 5 undersize. Lost a Hali as well. Stopped and anchored on the way in and picked up a 50lb hali.
Jerrys first of the year !!
Team Mills Landing !! nice work pal..
( comin over next week Jerry with familly , i need a favor )
Options guys ???
Right on! Jerry's smile says it all . That tuna looks like it has some size to it too. Congrats guys.
Thanks for posting Felix.
Where did you anchor? Sounds great!
anywhere along the edges has been great this year!
Found a hump 10 miles or so off Beale. Worked out good for us
Thanks! We're headed out to Bamfied tomorrow so looking forward to checking it out! What did you use as lure / bait? Depth? Any help appreciated... haven't fished for Hali before....but have many options we've bought and salmon belly ready
If you are salmon fishing as well then keep the heads. Either use a whole head if smaller or cut a bigger one in half. Use that on one hook and a salmon belly on the other and your good to go. Make sure you hook it in a way that when it is swallowed it will be able to hook the fish. Find a hump in the 150 to 300 range. There are a lot of contours off of bamfield so just find something that looks good to you and give it a try.
thanks, that helps a lot Maybe see you out there
Fished swale rock yesterday morning. Us and one tin boat were the only ones around. 15 minutes in my rod went off and started screaming. Landed a beauty 25lber on a purple coho killer. Go figure. Fished another hr past the 9 tide change an just small stuff. I was a happy man for my birthday. Terry
Heading to Bamfield in 14 more sleeps , any one know the price of fuel ?, curious is all .
Thank you for the reply morganic
We were out again today at 7 mile. Picked up one 20lb spring and a wild coho that we sent back . Anchored up again and had our two hali fairly quickly. Unreal weather out there.
Thanks for the report. Its been a few years since I've fished in Barkley and offshore. Never had much luck around 5/7 mile, but have done well at most times at the Rats Nose when possible to runout that far in my small 21' boat. Im planning on a couple of trips out there soon - im old, my boats old, and dont plan on heading far offShore.
Is there anything specific to look for at 5 or 7 mile to choose the best fishing location, without giving out your numbers?
Ya I just anchor for hali anywhere that has a lot of structure around it. I haven't fished out there a lot so my Advice isn't worth very much. When fishing Chinook I troll the structure near the edge as well and look for bait.
