    I am in around Nelson Island/Quarry bay area a lot, wondering how Texada South/Pilings would probably be. Seeing as Powell is a long run, especially for Coho/ Harwood, etc?

    If you cut across to Texada where the Hydro transmission line comes from Nelson Island to Texada, fishing can be really great in that area of Texada.

    Thanks, I was thinking of heading in that general direction! Sounds like a plan... Either way I wont be surprised if it is better than east side of Malaspina Straight!

    Maybe I'll find a spot to pick up some Dungey's finally too, kind of a rocky, no-crabs, dead zone where I'm at! :p

    Can't say I have before. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast, so the Sisters would be a bit far running out from Halfmoon Bay. I got a chance to fish Sangster/Lasqueti last summer and it blew my mind how many boats were out. Its great to see the inside improving so much over the last few years.

    Hi, fairly new to Campbell River and still learning the area. Is Coho on the northern tip of Texada? And where is Grants? Would it be best to drag the boat to Comox to launch or run from Campbell River?

    Correct coho is northern point of texada on your charts it's called kiddie point. Grants is a reef between harwood Island and savary island west of mystery reef. I would motor from Campbell River less hassle.

    Yes Coho point is the north end of Texada. Grant reefs is on the east side of Sentry Shoal. If you draw a line from Campbell River to Coho Point you will pretty much travel over Sentry and along Grants. If you look on a chart between Middlenatch, Savary and Harwood you will see Grants. Depending on the size of your boat you can run to Grants quite easily on a nice day just watch the weather.
    However closer to home for you is the area off Quadra Lighthouse and the marker cans. You will see a lot of boats will fish that area as well as across from the old pulp mill site to the bluffs on Quadra, I seem to remember they are called Copper Bluffs?? on the map.

    Made it to Grants for the afternoon. Had just a blast. Land three nice springs and my fish coho sighting of the year.
    Got into some yellow eye and lings as well.
