BAH. Anchored to the east of Sooke for halibut in the 'forever flood' zone this morning and had nada. Lost my GoPro (along with UV hoochie, circle hooks, bait canister, and spreader bar...please return for reward). Fished this evening (yes, hard ebb, again) for a few hours around trap shack and straight out from Sooke using hoochies (with the Jughead), bait, and the handle of a silver spoon shaped similar to a coho killer, without a hit...except for a couple rock fish. I'm losing my confidence. At least the crab trap had a 7'' dungeness (but newly molted) and a rock crab. Livin' the dream. Had a few beers maybe.
