Careful you can't give away all the hotspots and bling. No wonder its blowing a gale out there...have to wait til the afternoon when forecast is for lower winds. At least there's a nice flood this afternoon.

LOL :) - Pat where your boat is housed, you have mega spots with tons of protection to fish from, Nanaimo isn't the only local local hotspot. Some spots you'll need to travel through the lump, but in the end you will get to something fine. :)

Went out yesterday (Friday) with my neighbour, the Big Dog, fished out in the deep off of the Fingers and picked up a 25, 15 and a keeper. The 25 was on a 5" spoon at 130. Like Jeffy's it was a white spring. Then got a few lings to round out the day. Broke in my new jigging rod and reel, thanks PNT. Beauty day on the water.

Ya, that tub is pretty comfy in most stuff so we can get out in lumpy crud conditions. We were one of only a few boats who made it out on Saturday. Wasn't much into getting up at the crack of rooster fart on a full moon, when the better bite and tide was better later in the day. Some nice fish north from us, but no need to burn the extra fuel to get there with all the action close to home. Today was a lot of fun, even got a high teener on a recycled 5 inch herring we salvaged out of the gullet of a fish we caught! What a hoot.

Fished Fingers for the first time yesterday.
7-2. No springs for us. Saw 3-4 caught. Counted 60 boats.
Water was sloppy in the morning and got better after noon.

Thanks for the info that was given to me. It was nice to do a day trip and see some new area.

Thanks!
