Thanks for the report. Sounds like you had a great couple of days with Shawn!
They bit like crazy this morning. Limited out 4 persons in 3.5 hrs
That was the last week or so.
Shall I continue?
I'm booked for every day until past Labour day with repeat clients and don't need any business from this forum
will let you know when those fish finally arrive down our way
Just though it was a strange post from Blue re hook ups and slow Spring fishing the next day
Ahh, fogust on the West Coast.
Might be fitting to add this old saying with the tension swirling around, lol!!
" Shut up and Fish "
Dam and here i was going to book a trip
This year has been weird, for me, out of Tofino. Some days hard to scratch up a couple, other days double headers (even triples) of good springs. Maybe 2 days back to back in the same place, but not a lot of consistency for larger fish. Halibut is an off year for me so far after a spectacular year last year. Even coho have been here one day gone the next.
There've been more pinks this year than years past, or at least I've caught more than in years past. The weather has been spectacular and not too windy most of the time.
Uh that's fishing.....here one day and gone the next
Been fishing out of Tofino for the last 3 days. First two days water conditions were fantastic, the fishing was a bit tougher for me. Went 3 for 4 each day. Biggest was a 16 lb spring. Today it was blowing and nasty. Fought my way offshore and managed to hook 22 and land 15. Biggest was was 25 lb caught by my son and we had a 20 as well. A big thank you to FishTofino aka Shawn, who was kind enough to help steer me in the right direction to get some fish! White hoochie and small herring aid at 107 to 135 feet was working best.
Nice work bud. Yeah those Robertson fish are coming in hard! We were 15/24 on Saturday
Lotsa nice springs around yesterday and today. Pretty much any depth. Highest hit at 20, deepest at 129. Halibut still hard to come by (for me)
Yo pal. Let a few thru. I'm waiting for them down here in sooke. Only got 1 spring so far. Lots a pinks
Should be some Coho down there, sure not too many offshore here.
Springs still smallish. Biggest over last 2 days 20# twins yesterday. Today spent 1.5 hours NOT catching Halibut, then 6 springs in just over an hour. Almost always only one rod down while busy on the other side. 1 DH yesterday, 2 today.
Today was even hotter, for me, for Springs. After 8am had moved to 'naked chovies', and ended with a double header at 9:30.
Still can't find a Halibut though... 0 for 2017
Hows the weather looking this weekend? Heading over tomorrow.
