    Looks good Jeff keep posting..... I tried the other day here and I am jealous of your hauls. I should have taken a picture of the 6 prawns I got and shown you the difference the commercial fleet can do to an area when prawning is as good as it seems to be in area 17. It can be wipeout as fast as you post the pictures of them LOL :)

    You get enough to freeze them and be done with prawning for the year.... What are you doing this weekend maybe I should come prawning with you. :) weather looks great.

    Sunday trolling all day :p come may 1st it will be Commie set for as far as the eye can see, like it is every year out here. Just happy to get a few in the freezer for some coming guest's from Tumbler ridge and Alberta. as with my salmon I give at least 80 % of it away to friends.

    Commercial prawning opens may 9th FYI. Was down in Stuart yesterday if I had to guess I'd say there were about 80-100 floats between the Thetis ferry and tent and this was a weekday. I'm sure that has no effect on the prawn populations.....on another note, got a 11 pound red a couple nights ago out off the fingers. Pretty slow still but you might just get lucky and trip over one.

    seem to be migrating south in regards to your interest and opinion about locales south of Kitty, hey?
     
  12. I was out last thursday fishing off the fingers, I got a 11lb red and a 15lb marble spring. The Water was awsome. I was going to head out to thrasher but I talked to a man at the dock just coming in from fishing and he had a nice spring inthe boat but had lost two right at the fingers. So I thought I would save some gas and valuable fishing time. Lol... green glow flasher and chovy @ 130ft on the other rod green flasher and cop car spoon and I tried a kitchen sink but no action on that gear View attachment 11280
