Was out for a couple hours off West Van / the Cap last night. We picked up one coho at 32 ft. and lost another at 18 ft. (both on Silver Horde spoons). Fished three lines between 15 ft. and 32 ft. and a bottom bounced an anchovy on a fourth line (no action on it).

Heading out to the local waters in the early am leaving out of the South arm, was thinking on heading out around Galiano, Lions Island. Good choice or not, any reports? Any feedback would be great. Thanks

I have been fishing this area pretty hard since late may with some pretty epic days so far. That said there have been somedays that have been dead slow. If the springs are around there have been days with 15 bites in a 5hr trip. Nothing bigger than 22lbs in the boat yet this year but did loose a couple that were probably close to 30 or bigger. last weekend had a double header an hr before high slack that we managed to get 1 in the boat at 17lbs and lost the much bigger one that nearly spooled the full reel.

Thanks for the report fortyfour. Once out of the arm, is it about a 30 minute run?

it depends on the water, wind etc and of course size of boat and HP but yeah it can be about 40 mins to Thrasher for starters, we are heading across on Friday.

I was out yesterday locally along the west van shoreline. We hear of a few nookies being caught around the bell bouy, and one tyee south of bown. (friend of mine). We worked from fisheries to the mouth. We founf the Ho's, who were biting chovies and white hootchies. The biggest was 7.5lb coho. We caught 6-7 between 11:30 am and 2:30pm.
