    Used to fish the back side kelp beds of Separation Point in Cowichan Bay with cut-plugs and hammer springs!!! Caught my first spring at camper creek on a cut-plug, oh times have sure changed.

    Just in from rennie, managed 4 springs to 15lbs and 3 fat sockeye over a couple days.
    Springs were all in the 530 to 630 night bite

    Sockeye were way out and way down!

    Fun trip, got to fish with my son on his boat Friday, he did good too!

    That sounds like a violation of the seiners contract, and a theft from the government. I may be wrong, but I think the test seiners get a flat daily rate and the government owns those fish.

    If any of you guys are around on the weekend of Sept 15th, my 3 brothers and I are going to be staying at PGM. On the Saturday night we're going to host an Open Mic Jam at Bridgeman's at the marina. I think a few of you may have been around a few years back when we did this in front of the fire pit by the food truck. At least one of you will know the spontaneous song written about the "Head Girl at the Dairy Queen".

    Is anyone still fishing Swiftsure? If so, still getting chinook out there?

    Its been slow for chinook for a while, from what i ear, tons of coho

    Thanks, yeah I figured the coho wouldn't be too difficult to find. Probably the biggest challenge will be getting clipped fish.

    Beautiful weather for the derby this weekend!! Flat calm and sunny almost all weekend. Fishing was decent, our boat landed 5 and lost at least another 5, nothing big though. Winner was 29 lbs, 2 fish also weighed in at 27 lbs. As usual it was an awesome time put on by a great group of people and it looked like everybody had a lot of fun.

    Headed up to Renfrew to fish this week. What hot lures, should I have in my tackle box. Where and how deep?

    Thanks & Tight lines!

    Chovies in UV and glow teaser teaser heads, along the beach in 40-100 feet of water. If youd rather fish gear, I like AP spoons but the gibbs stuff will work too. There should be a few big fish swimming by there in the next week or two. Good luck!

    Another great season for us. Lots of springs, sockeye and coho. And of course my largest fish ever, 50 lb halibut. We were also lucky enough to see some great whale shows. Already looking forward to next year. Would love to get out with the Jackel next season and talk fishing and baseball!
