    A buddy of mine was out a couple weeks ago and picked up 3 cookie cutter winter feeders on anchovies 100-120ft not far from the harbor. Weather has been pretty cold and miserable looking forward to this upcoming season along with better water conditions :)

    I know that summer is coming and guys have been thinking of where to go on the coast this summer. I found an edited un-posted video today from a Perfect Weather day out at Ucluelet Last August. I uploaded to youtube and posted the link above. This is out on the Banks about 4 to 6 miles off shore.

    Love the video.
    But I can't help to notice the young kids without life jackets.

    Any new reports from Ukee? We will be there for 5 days at the end of June. Hopefully there are some nice fish on the banks by then. Can anyone share some general near shore spots that are productive for bottom fish. I know the offshore spots but I've never been successful for bottom fish inshore in the Ukee/Bamfield area.

    Thanks in advance,

    Brian

    Fishing in Ukee has been off and on Chinook wise, some days hot other days a grind. Halibut fishing is starting to pick up. Here's a couple pics from the last few trips.

    Can anyone comment on the parking situation in Ucluelet? We will be arriving on June 22nd departing on the 27th. We have rented at Terrace Beach Resort but it doesn't sound like there is room to park the boat (19' Campion). I am fine with launching each day or I would consider getting moorage at the dock. I still need a solution for the trailer. Any from the regulars?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    You should be able to call Island West or just drop in, launch there for a fee, and pay about $4.00 per day for trailer storage in their compound. If you plan to launch and fish at dawn, you'll need to go during office hours the day before or call and explain. If you moor there you also get very reasonable access to their walk in freezer. ( I prefer salt ice and filleting at home). The boat basin is cheaper for moorage. June should be wide open. Later in the year it's busy everywhere and you'll need to reserve.
    There is a free launch, but I don't know anything about parking the rig, plus you still need a place for the trailer each night.

  17. Thanks for the weather update fishtofino I'm guessing tommorow ilk be staying home as I'm sure the 672 campion Explorer wouldn't wanna be out in that... I've got caught out on the banks a couple years ago when wind came up and seas aswell... Lesson learnt for the 3 hr journey back to ukee... So guess I'll be waiting till Monday or someday next week... Are there many fish around??!
