The 632 was the RVP. My RVP inspired custom went 1 for 2.
I think anything would have worked to be honest.
The fish had squid, needlefish and the Herring in them.
Thanks to a local guide for pointing us to the right area.
Late reply sorry. Fished grants reef Friday we had great action on army truck and blue meanie 210/230 feet Around slack tide. There were a couple othr boats in the area who we're doing well also.
Out today. Had to wedge the boat into the water due to a really low tide at Kitty. Took awhile. According to my Buddy, the lowest he's seen in a while. Thank goodness for aluminum boats though, we pushed through a channel and off we go to test out the new hydraulic steering. Worked like a wonder and also managed to alleviate an annoying hum on the kicker. Did a little fishing from 3-5
pm. Sloppy NNW wind to start but layed down soon afterwards. 4 hookups but only 1 fish in the box, a beauty, on a plug dragging the bottom.

That's Rob at PNT Parksville. He's the one that comes up with all the custom plug colors that are then stamped RVP.
Fished grants this morning early. It was alittle lumpy. We picked one and a keeper ling we lost three keeper chinooks for sure plus lots of coho and pinks. Good action worth the run over.
Nice picture Prairie Locked. Is that you fishing of the paddle board
Yes, I was trolling in close
23.5 pounds. Picture taken with the boys of some Dutch tourists. Wild and white female, 36 1/2 inches.
Edited for all the dickhead comments apparently. Thanks for the heads up from some of you that are at least decent people.
Someone's pretty dialed in..
Nice fish prarie locked.
Anyone been seeing any pinks out at Kitty and area?
was out 545 -830.windy so came in.no fish.Care taker at the park said 3 fish came in yesterday (derby day)largest was 12lbs.
Fished the Hump yesterday evening. Tried flasher and army truck hoochie and no luck. Switched to a plug at 230 feet and caught one small spring and one dogfish. Seen some good size bait balls all hugging the bottom. Lots of weeds in the water. Hope the water column clears up soon. Good luck out there.
Going to be camping on hornby this week. Any chance of casting from shore for salmon? Pinks maybe?
We're also looking at heading there. Interested in the answer!
Well, on the last day out in the Valley, managed 3 keepers at 12, 13 and 14 pounds. Was a great afternoon on the water. Lost another one that I figured was over 20 right by the boat.
Now back home so will need to wait another year. Overall, I found it to be a great fishing season for us. Until next summer!
