Any gone fishin location I believe.
I picked up my ticket yesterday at Gone Fishing in PA. Father-in-law in my boat and the Step father-in-law and his son in another.
Tickets bought a month ago, crew is hot to go!
Last week it was surreal to think that we'd be fishing in 2 more weeks. Be gone, snow!
Fished Vernon bay and Pill point Sunday morning with a buddy , caught and released 4 keeper springs and around 6 undersized in a few hours. herring aid and Irish cream spoons were the ticket. lots of bait around.
Any size to any of the keepers? Thx for the report!
Am packing my long Johns in the bag for the weekend. Hopefully a bit of sun will warm my old bones this weekend. Looking forward to a Cariboo Sunday at the Nook.
How was the derby last weekend
Great weekend out there. Weather awesome, lots of sun. Lots of small fish around and derby winner was close to 18lbs. Lots of boats out. Great start to the year.
Brad and I went over to the nook for the weekend. We just went over to hangout ( boat not ready to go yet . It was a little cold in the mornings Saturday am the book was froze over. You guys place look good . When are you guys heading over cpp ?
Hey guys wondering if you could point me in the right direction, I've never fish halibut this time of year and going to go give it a whirl this weeken. Do I have to go a lot further out this time of year or can I still pick some up in close? Any coordinates would be a great help.
New halibut fishermen here
Thanks in advance
We don’t usually get over to Poett nook till May. But when we go Hali fishing we head off shore , usually 5 mile. I don’t anchor up , we troll for the Hali. Long as the weather and tides behave it’s pretty fishing . we run 20lb downrigger balls to stay close to the bottom keep our speed around 1-1/2 mile hr. I’ve never tried inside ,
Anyways just give it a whirl. And good luck.
Halibut should be close following the spawning herring any rock pile near swale might be good look for 300 feet going to 210 should be okay this early John looking at April 1 weather depending
Awesome much appreciated!
Watch you tube trailing halibut there are about 5 good ones
Nice to see some guys giving positive help. Wasn’t expecting much as most of us tend to be tight lipped.
no such thing as inside halibut
Anyone have a weather report? Thinking of running outside tomorrow. Weather report has been changing daily.
Is there any chance of winter springs around Pill Pt. I have some family visiting and wondered if I should bother
It’s worth a shot. Done well there for winters in the past. Haven’t been there recently though.
