    Fished Cliff Pt. from 10 AM to 1:30 PM today. Brought back 2 teeners and released a lot of shakers. Definitely not on fire when we were there.

    Great up dates folks Thank you. Sounds like the fish are moving, hopefully some fresh ones are on the way in. Am getting excited about our trip coming next week.
    Whats the deal e o about no ice? Is it cause of no retention? Or what? Should I get sea ice at Campbell River on my way up?

    Boatland
    3125 N island Hwy Campbell River

    Ice isn't salted but good for the beverages

    Fish cooler will probably cost more maybe double. 8 bucks ?

    We fished Clifffe point most of the day yesterday lots of action on hootchies spoons and chovies. Some nice coho starting to show up with chinooks mixed in. Usuall depths 30 - 50 feet.
    Evan dropped my buddy off to catch a few waves at Grants.

    It's raining today see how that affects the bite.

    No prob. Hub City Fisheries in Nanaimo also has sea ice. I just called Harbor Chandler and they gave me some other ideas since I won’t be thru CR when CR Seafoods is open.

    Cliffe point was very good this morning.
    Chinook and coho. Anchovies and green and white hootchies was working well. Our crew went down to the narrows and picked some coho there also.

    Another great trip to winter harbour.
