    Good luck out there vanislehunter! I'll be out there too.. Not sure if ill make it up to porlier unless I find a couple accomplices with gas pitch. Will likely just stick to the cable area where it has been decent. Massive bait balls starting to show up blacking out the sounder.[​IMG]

    Tried to fish porlier today, too rough for my little boat. Tried on the inside of Galiano where there was lots of bait but no love there either. Pulled the crab traps and one had two flounder it. Decided to jig there for a bit and picked up a couple more. Got dinner for tonight at least. How'd anyone else make out?

    Tried a few hrs on the tail end of the ebb tide through the slack. No bites today was a fair bit of bait on the sounder.

    Been pretty quiet on here for about 3 weeks. Where'd everybody go?
    My last two outings came up empty handed for fish. The wind on weekends always seem to blow up so i've only been able to get out in the evenings after work. I was at tent last weekend from 5 to 7:30, some bait on the sounder but no fish biting. Last night I ventured out to porlier and fished from 5:45 to 7:15. It was a glorious evening to be on the water hardly any waves. Fished from 60-140ft in 140 to 300ft of water but couldn't hook into anything. Was pulling irish cream coho killers and gibbs ghost. Maybe they are only biting in the morning?

    Anyone else been out or hearing about anyone catching fish yet?

    Crabbing has been great though. The other day we pulled two traps and 30 crabs in them, 18 keepers. Picked the 8 most delicious looking ones and had ourselves some well deserved (I feel like I deserved it anyways) glutton time!

    I will be over at galiano this weekend and will most likely put in some fishing time. I may head to Tent area to fish but that will depend on weather, etc. Also, for you galiano folks there is a fundraising concert / party at the Hummingbird pub this saturday, Apr. 5th - see pic for details.

    Gearing up for a few days of fishing this weekend. Haven't had much luck the last few trips out. Have tried Thrasher and Tent Island in the last week or so with no bites mind you I haven't exactly put in full days. I'm thinking about trying a few different spots over the next three days. Will likely fish Galiano up to Porlier then maybe Thrasher Rk or Tent Island area. I have also had some good days at Pender bluffs in April.
