    Caught a nice 25 pound halibut in 210 feet of water today. Very slow currents, no wind and beautiful sunshine. Didn’t even see another recreational boat fishing.

    So what this is saying that with all that glacial melt we've gone up in salinity a bit....weird...and water temperatures havent really fluctuated that much? Forget Mars let's just build underwater.

    Very hard to read this by eye. It really needs to be plotted on a graph. However, in my opinion you may be right about salinity not showing much of a trend. No surprise there as that has not been reported a great deal in the scientific literature. What has been recorded everywhere is rising acidity, which is not recorded here and sea surface temperature rising. I can clearly observe a small but steady rise in sea temperature, especially in June, July and August. Plot those on a graph and take a look......

    Out at Pedder today. Trolled for a couple of hours in the morning and nothing but a little shaker. On the hook by noon and my buddy landed 1 dog, 1 ratfish and then around 2pm he landed a 30 lb hali while all I had was one little nibble. Lucky I had my buddy today. Picked up 5 nice crab on the way in. Great day on the water.

    Found this yesterday in a kelp bed outside of Pedder bay. Looks like it's a commercial set-up but markings are not clear enough to make out who own's it. Here for pickup if someone on here owns it.
