Fished Wain rock 10 - 12. About 20 minutes in....Not paying attention and thinking to myself wtf am I doing out here in the chop and cold. I look back and the line's off the clip!! Awe it's off.........No it's there! A crazy fight....The fish ran right at me then quickly turned and burned like 5 times. I was very lucky netting it as it went for one last burn in the wrong direction right into the net. 15lb wild on an AP herring spoon 43' in 70' View attachment 31390
That's great and its unclipped so might not be American. I wonder if that is one is from the small spring run heading to Cowichan River that should be entering soon. Good catch. I am not surprised I was in the narrows just over a week and ago and it was loaded with herring.
