    Fished today at Sandheads had a late start at noon. Released a wild coho and picked up two pinks and then hit a beauty chinook at 71' on rigger in 275 feet of water . Ended up weighing 20.5lbs All all the day was slow but that sure kept the spirits up on board Screenshot_20190903-211015_Gallery.jpg

    Congrats to the handful of boats that managed springs today.
    Slowest I've seen it in weeks. We were out from 11 till 5 and didn't see any significant fish in anyone's nets.
    We played with about 20 pinks and they're looking pretty green and humpy already. Had couple of double headers and one triple.
    Flat calm and beauty day though.
    On the run back to Captain's Cove lots of pinks seemed to be breaking the surface everywhere but not jumpy....had never seen that before.

    Went out this afternoon before 2 pm today at Sandheads. Beautiful calm afternoon and evening. No fish though. Picked up the odd shiny pink then after 5 pm at Sand Heads in the 220 to 250 range a cluster of boats started to pick up a few springs. Then it was our turn and another Fishing Doc did the job of pulling in a nice red chinook on a spoon at 55'. Then when we were going to pull in the lines for the day my side went off. Picked it up and the fish took off. It starts thrashing on the surface. Takes a huge run then jumps out of the water. I'm slowly working this fish to the boat across the surface over 100 yards out. Get him in to 75 and he starts swimming back and forth. Then all of a sudden comes fying right out of the water for the third time. I feel a couple jerks after hitting the water and he death rolled me right out of a chinook salmon. That fish was on a large anchovie in glow head at 55 feet. Couldn't beat the weather though. My fishin buddy from work Dr. McCormack with his catch, hope he doesnt mind landing in this forum. 20190903_191906.jpg 20190903_185402.jpg .

    Interesting- I sit down on English Bay most evenings watching for whatever and have yet to see any Salmon jump-very odd.

    Put in a few hours this morning, NA to T10, missed my only hit, mangled the herring’s belly just missed the hooks. Otherwise slow, worked the gear and the depths. Definitely slower or just unlucky today. Oh well that’s fishing.

    Tried NA to QA - Knocked a nice one off with the net this afternoon. Started getting rough so didn’t stay long. 70’ in 150 FOW. Trolling 4mph seemed to help. 2 other hits one grill.

Unfortunately...fortunately we left Vancouver for other fishing grounds at Tropical Runaway, Cayman Brac in the Caribbean. Totally a different fishery here, but still exciting. Trolling at 9-12 knots at the 600’ contour line off our home shoreline about 1/4 off the beach. Wahoo and Dorado is our primary catch with Bonita as a tidbit for sashimi appetizers. Have yet to drift for Yellow Fin Tuna, which we may be taking up as the Sargussum weed makes trolling challenging. Will be back for winter fishery. Thanks for all the posts, glad for all the B.C. anglers. Check out our facebook page at Tropical Runaway, Cayman Brac.

    Out yesterday off T10 from 10:30 - 3. Landed one chinook about 15lbs, lost 2 other screemers. All on chovy. Deep rod at 100 hit all the chinook. Didn’t see a lot of chinook action, still a good number of pinks.
