    Picked up a couple of springs at the green can yesterday morning. Black hoochey, kite flasher with 140 on the rigger. Lots of bait showing and fish were full off 6-7 inch herring

    As for Coho season, I called the DFO # Powell River and was told that the BC Tidal Sport Fishing Guide website is what to go by. I guess we'll have to see if there are any changes made by June 1st and go by what it says there on opening day.

    This is the correct information for Coho. The DFO regional office called me back and explained that the 2014-15 map is for last season. This season has not been determined yet.

    Good to know. Thanks Brick.

    I wish they would do away with this Apr 1 - Mar 31 non-sense and just go by calendar year. If "2014" was printed atop those maps instead of "2014/2015", there would be no second guessing.

    Link to the map is written like this, copied right from their web-page: "Map: 2014 and 2015 coho and chinook openings for Area 15, Powell River"

    That certainly doesn't read like the 2014-15 license season but rather for the 2014 and 2015 calendar years. Particularly as all the seasons mentioned fall within a single calendar year, with the exception of the RCA closures, which are year round.

    I wouldn't want to have to be a Fishery Officer explaining a ticket in court if someone were mislead by such poorly written material on the web page we're all directed to for the most up to date regs!!

    Only had one bite today and it was a doozie. Trolled around the flasher hoochie combo for few hours with no bites. Put on the MOP Nogs needle spoon and within half an hour I was into my first Tyee. Unfortunately it broke me off after a couple minute fight. It was up on the surface and jumping right away. A real slob of a fish, Im talking that fat fat mid to high 30s Ive been dreaming about my whole life. Easily 10 to 15 lbs bigger than anything Ive ever hooked. I had my one rigger up and in and was working on the second when a combination of poor knot and touching the drag when I shouldnt have and POP it was gone.

    Im not one to scream obscenities at the top of my lungs. Normally calm cool and collected. But today it happened. LOL Im sure anyone on the hump around 1:45 heard me.

    130 ft of cable in 200ft of water. West side of the hump. High slack
    Wish I had a picture for you fellas. Believe me!

    Lots of big bait balls everywhere.

    LOL. I was about 300 feet away putting my gear away and noticed you had something on (only boat I saw playing a fish today). And then I heard the scream of frustration. My buddy and I looked at each other and said, "I think he lost it". Too bad it had to happen on a beauty of a fish. I've yelled four letter words a few times over the years after losing fish.

    What a rush that must have been. I bet you will get another chance!::)

    I will get another chance! I've only been fishing the salt just over a year and I spend a lot of time on the water. I think I catch a fair bit of fish but still looking for my over 30lber.

    Heading out right now to go find another big boy.:cool:

    Well done. In how much water are you fishing at the green can and how deep is your line ?
  13. capt. crunch

    capt. crunch Member

    Water 170-270
    100-130 on the rigger

    yea, Ive heard of a few biggies lately. Ive only been catching 20#, not that Im complaining, actually fishings been great:)
    Im still waiting for my first CR tyee. Ive caught many on the west coast, but I have hundreds if not thousands of logged hours over there. Been fishing hump to lighthouse last few nights on the bottom of the ebb. Lots of big herring down there. Anybody use tomic spoons on this side?

    Fished the green can today. 1for 3. Red 10lber. Lots of boats south east quadra. I stayed away from the pack, that's probably where the big ones were. Lol.
    Awesome day out!

    fished the ebb today and yesterday, got 2 springs one 10 and a 25 pounder. Plus a couple keeper lings as incidental catches. Not super hot out there but a few to be had, couple weeks and it should be hot is my guess

    Fished the green can on the flood this afternoon. Saw plenty of fish caught but none for me.
