    We were in 160-200 feet of water and close to bottom at all times. Didn't mark much bait most of the day so the one keeper we did get we were happy with. I've heard it's been better this week so I may try again this coming weekend, weather permitting as usual.

    Fished Porlier today. Lots of boats out there but we only saw one net out. We had one hit at 155ft in 172 feet of water. didnt stick for more than a few seconds. Beauty day out there, but not a lot of bait and not a lot of fish either. How'd everyone else make out?

    If you guys could go anywhere from nanaimo to pender bluffs tomorrow, where would you find yourself trying for springs? I55, you got any more info you can share? I'll be leaving from Crofton so Chemainus is an easy run for me. Depth of water, depth of lures etc?

    Off of Hope bay on Pender Island is good for Winter Spring (although they may be gone by now), Hoochies and literally dragging bottom worked best for me. Bottom is silt, so as long as you stay clear of crab and shrimp pods, you're good, and not going to get snagged.

    Around these Co-ordinates: 48.783776, -123.244168

    Good Luck.
