    Stayed in the gulf islands this weekend. Thrasher was going off yesterday am offshore. Had 6 in the boat by 9:30 with multiple other hookups. 110-180. Hid from the midday wind then was out for the evening tide but the whales went by and seemed to clear out the fish. Went back out for a quick one this am on the way back and got two more down deep 180-200. Spoons and hootchies were working

    There were a few p cod around

    Exact same setup I took out in favor of pod and outboard. No regrets what so ever.

    20 hits 18 to the boat released all the small fellas nice and safe in the water.. kept a couple of keepers
    sure was dark and crappy early on am.... but the sun and the tide change later on brought the bite back on in the afternoon
    several double headers made it fun going solo running 4 ... out in the middle off R.C.

    No Bananas at 95’ is enjoying lots of action off Bowen this morning. A bit lumpy but gorgeous.

    Taking boat up to Sechelt for the long weekend, any advice on spots to troll up that way? Have only ever had the boat up there once and trolled the south end of Trail Islands with some success but would like to try some new grounds. Cheers in advance!

    Was out in the slop on Saturday. Lots of action north of Cowan. Put 2 in the box and bagged a 3 man limit of prawns. Also did a tack on the way home at the bell and hit a 20lb fish and got Sealed! White glow hoochie and blue splatter back hoochie worked for us.

    Just released 6 more fish. Half just under. We're closer to RC now in 600'. Anchovies and spoons.

    Ended up picking up a slab mid south bowen in 450'. 100' on an old rusty 4" cop car. So if we're counting ALL the fish it was probably 15. Really there were only the 2 keepers and about three others that were very close. The others shouldn't even be mentioned lol. Resized_20190416_120547.jpeg
