    Nothing worth talking about at Sail
    Went to Austin around noon, quite a few feeders there but nothing big (<6lbs)

    If Pil is slow try either Vernon Bay or Rainey Bay. We pulled out some nice ones over 12 lbs in both spots lately

    Took the boat up this past weekend to grappler for the summer. Fished a couple hours each morning just on the wall and hooked quite a few fish but all pretty small. Largest a 6lb hatchery fish. Lots of bait Sunday morning jumping around the boat. Blew up my Sounder at the end of last year so was fishing blind. Small spoons seemed to be ticket

    Ran the boat out to the nook on the weekend. Fished for a couple of hours. Got into a couple of fish One around 5 lbs. and the other 8lbs. Both where wild. Released both. Anchovy was the ticket at 75ft off diplock. Did one set for prawns 160 for a 6hr soak. The road was in pretty good shape

    Olde school I only made a couple of pass at diplock , seen a couple of bait balls on the sounder. Besides the two that I caught and released , that was it. My son was dragging a spoon. There was no action on that. Mine where on anchovy in a purple haze Teaser head. Had my 3-1/2 year old granddaughter out for the first time fishing. Didn’t want to push it. So we kept it to a short trip. Anyways good luck out there. John.

    Spent the last two weekends in April in the sound. Chinook fishing was spotty at best for us. We did find a few nice fish over by Kirby and ling fishing was pretty good. There are a lot of undersized lings out there!

    We tried a few spots for salmon like Cree island, swale rock, Vernon bay, diplock and pill point but the only place we found them were kirby, satilite passage and around sandford island.

    Planning on being back Sunday and Monday of the May long to try for halibut so hopefully some more salmon move in and the winds lay down.

    So this happened. A buddy from work and his wife had a couple in visiting from Atlanta Georgia. He's a big fisherman the others not so much. I offered to take them up to bamfield for the long weekend as I thought it would be awesome experience for them. I said I'd organize everything and we could split the expenses with which my buddy agreed. I included my travel and cabin costs(since my wife ain't coming and I'm essentially a host that has to do it all) and it worked out to about 1000$ for the five of us for 3 nights some fishing and all meals. I told them last night it would be about 200$ per person which I assumed was reasonable. Well I woke up this morning with a text saying the Americans couldn't afford to go and they were bitter and they weren't going to get up for their ferry reservation. I tried phoning them this morning and texted I would cover some for them and said 100$ per person but got no response. I'm pretty sure they didn't get on the 745 ferry. So was I being unreasonable. I think my offer and the opportunity to do a bamfield trip was more than fair. What do you guys think

    A very fair offer that was ignorantly rejected by people who probably have no clue of what it costs to go on a trip. If anything your proposed costs are on the low end!
