    No issues there Spring Fever, always happy to pass along tips as well as receive them. Just didn't want anyone thinking the fishing was super slow. The fish are bouncing around a lot in Barkley Sound. Probably because they have too much choice with all the bait everywhere.

    BTW, I like experimenting as much as anyone...but usually save that for fair weather days when you can afford to be picky. Tried and true stuff is battle tested. I often find guys really over-think fishing. We are trying to fool an animal with a pea size brain, so simple is good.

    Welcome back, when will we be seeing the El Grande Loco plying the waters of Barkley Sound? Time for a little bump and grind NAS Car sportfishing action. BTW, checked those photos on my dock from 3 years ago, and they are pretty similar but for some random dude passed out in my lawn chair. :cool:

    Buenos Dias,
    Camped on the hook in Effingham Bay last Sat, fished Sunday AM Meares & Cree. Released the chinook that weren't bleeding & still had our limits by 10:30. Good day on the water, no Hali's but we'll get em on round two. Normal depths 91' bait on one side coyotes on the other both produced but bait was better.

    I'll be out there this week shoot you a text.

    Back from a weekend in Bamfield - Friday afternoon we fished the wall and managed a couple undersize and a 12lb spring. Saturday morning went to Kirby from 07-1100 and managed 4 springs, 17 being the biggest and the rest about 8 pounds. Also threw back a few borderline keepers to live another day. fish caught on everything including anchovies, army truck hootchies and spoons in the 70-100 ft depths.
    Fished Saturday afternoon along Bradys beach and the wall and didnt get anything else other than a couple undersize. Of all the boats we saw out there, there were folks getting into the odd smaller fish, but it didnt seem like too much was going on overall.

    I went offshore on weds..stopped at 5 mile and the dinosaur, no bait and no fish, so I headed out the Rats Nose.. LOADED w bait and lots of fish. Mostly the 8lb size ( too many really ) and a few teeners. My depths were deep, 145 to 175'. A couple small hali came up to the 175' rod so there must be a fair number out there. I didn't try after the 2 one the troll.
    Thurs was enough sw wind that I stayed inshore. Fished from Mears to Cree and got one 18lb at 77' on a green/blue hoochie. I saw several other fish netted in the morning but then left at 10am once the tide was swinging.
    I went to Swale and Diplock to hide from the wind but had no luck w fish.. water is quite warm in the sound, 61.4 on my sounder and there was little bait showing.
    I did hear of a 26 and a 28lb coming from Keena? ( sp?) bay so maybe the surfline is a worthwhile try.
    Not sure how much this report helps, but that what it was for me
