    Thanks jeffywestcoast. That fish put up a great fight. I didn't see too much action out there but it was a perfect night to be on the water.

    Saturday my son and I managed 4. Long day on the water though. First one at Winchelsea, (16), lost a couple springs , also lost a real scappy coho that was easily over 10lb as it cartwheeled beside the boat. (I know it is not June yet lol) Then in front of Rocky point we found some fish and in half an hour picked up three more. 14 and a couple smaller ones, around 7-8lb. We also picked up a bonus ling in the 10lb size. Surprisingly most fish were around 100' mark in 200 feet of water. Lures were Homeland security, bait, spatter back hootchie, and a pink and black one I cant recall the name. So nice to be able to share a good day on the water with my son.

    Went out this afternoon 5-8. Blowing 15-20. Fished entrance going with the wind. Released an undersized, got on to a double header. Bagged a 15lber, lost the other one. 115ft army truck hootchie.

    i was fishing in the area 3 weeks ago and hooked into a nice 15lber and when i got home (edmonton) i processed the fish... the meat was very pink in color. I was surprised because we fish prince rupert most of the time when we are on the coast and the Chinooks are more of a orange meat.
    Is it just the difference in diets?

    The wind almost beat us on Saturday, but we persevered. Made it all worth while as we fished the high tide and caught our limit, and released some smaller ones. Biggest was 18, then, 16, 12 and 8. Those Amundson reels sure make it sweet when these scrappy fish take off on long runs. Who ever wins the Brendan Morrison's Tofino Saltwater Classic prize of the Amundson reel will be in for treat. IMG_0933.jpg
