Post your 2017 fishing reports here!
Such a fun day on the humps yesterday! My first day out on my own and decided to run 2 rods (go big or go home). In 2 hours i was into 2 keeper springs. Theres a bit of a learning curve dealing w fish alone! Especially spunky winter springs. So no blood on the deck but a super fun day. Got them both in deep water (think bigger loop around humps). 120 in 275+. Green flasher w a green/blue/glow small spoon (herring aid by gold star). Zero crab....bait not even disturbed. Too cold for the mud bugs?
Here's to an awesome 2017 season.
Nice. It may just be the angle but it looks like one of those spunky winters may have have opened up your hook a little...
That, and took some paint with him too. lol
Where are the 'humps', I live over on the Port Alberni side and was thinking about giving the east side a go.
Just outside the french creek marina. If you look at your charts you will see 2 pinnacles at about 195' surrounded by water 225'+. Ill pm you a picture of my chart later.
I couldnt figure out how to pm you a pic. Here it is. My chart is in metres.
is there anywhere to shore fish for herring?
Great thanks, another question if you don't mind, any concerns (eg low tides) with launching at the French Creek launch or is there another more preferred launching spot?
French creek is a good launch. They recently redid the launch dock.
You can get herring fishing off the breakwater during the spawn. Ive never got them that way but ive seen it done. Ill be jigging a few buckets up from the boat this spring.
Went out today. 3 undersized but no keepers. Talked to a lady at the ramp who got 1 undersized but yesterday the two of them limited out in a couple hours.
First day out today. 3 nice keepers and lots of shakers. Green and glow spoons right in the mud. Beautiful day too
Went out Friday with the neighbour and landed a 15 and a 8lber off of Finnerty. One on a blue splatter back at 120', which we always have luck with their, and the other on a white glow hoochie at 80' right at high slack. Beautiful day.
Hit the humps yesterday productive morning 4 just underside to the boat then it dropped right off in the afternoon got 1 pin popper in the afternoon 4or 5 good runs then lost him at the surface all in all a great day
