    Nootka/Esperanza Update
    Fish Ferrer Pt. Friday and Saturday June 27 & 28. Weather was wet running out but once we were beyond Centre Is. ( yes it is spelled correctly check your chart) the rain backed off both days. Our fishing party was composed of our daughter, son in law and 4 grandchildren AND of course Grandpa (ME). What a Great present (their visit) for my Birthday.
    Fishing Friday was red hot lots of Chinook & even more Coho. Grandpa had to be extremely patient as the family only fishes once a year. 16 bonified salmon hookups 7 of which were confirmed Springs. Boated Friday 1 Springs 3 Coho. Saturday water lots choppier
    6 Strikes 6 fish - 3 springs 18 - 22lb the largest Coho was 11lbs the other 2 much smaller. The crew learned very QUICKLY how to play those fish!!!
    Gear- flasher- with anchovy on one side the other side used Coho killer. As usual bait won the Day.
    Looks like weather is going to finally settle down this week & allow for more comfortable catching. Fish On John

    King_Cod Lots of boat leaving the marina daily between 6-7 am. On days like today 75% are headed offshore. They are usually headed for the highway at the pins or the "T". About 11 miles out. Some are after Hali, Some Springs, Some Both. For the next 8 weeks both will be in good number out their.
    If you would like to fish the Esperanza side - come up from Nootka early and we can hook you up with one of regular customers.
    Always good to have at least a couple of boat together when going outside,as you know.
    Lots of 18-28 lb Springs came in yesterday from the Highway.
    Let me know - like to meet you - I'll buy the coffee!!!

    Checking to see if anybody has heard of when the maps for area 125/25 might get updated on the fisheries site. With the rule changes this year, it would be nice to see the new maps showing additional open areas.

    I was just going to ask the same question about maps for area 25/125. Where are they? We're getting into prime time. Am I missing a link on the DFO site? I just don't see the usual detailed maps that show all the different sub areas.

    The charts for 25/125 are now on the DFO site for Chinook-- if you can not find them email me direct & I will send them to you.
    john@westviewmarina.com You will like the new Regulations/Charts

    Could you drop a link to the Chinook maps here as I'm sure many like me have been searching with no success.

    John I have been rumbling around the DFO site for 1/2 hr looking for the colored maps on Chinook and coho. They have disappeared!! Can't find where the over 77cm and under for Chinook are. Do you have the correct link-all I have ever used is the general info site and notices site but can't find them. Thanks

    Sorry Guys--AS you may not know I'm not much of a computer guy.
    I got the maps hard copy from our Creel Surveyor. Cathy my wife scanned them for me so they can be emailed out.
    We will try to figure out how to put them on the forum. Sorry about my lack of computing skills.
