    I think the spring/summer thread has run its course so to speak.

    Time to start a new thread :).

    Maybe 10%. Most of the prawns were medium in size. I would think in another month there will be alot more with eggs. Thew ones we got with eggs were just starting to show.

    Get out there and let us know......we are wondering

    JUST ONE MORE Member

    Jlewis and I got out prawning a little while back and had great water and managed a couple hundred crimson beauties. We set a little deep on four of our traps and the current was taking them to Vancouver, but luckily we chased them down..The crabbing was ok but a whole lot of not quite big enough ones. But it is a long winter and we are looking forward to lots of time out there. We did get a 15lb ling, and let him go of course. I'm hoping to get a few winter springs this year; so fingers crossed.
  9. Went out prawning today between 2 pulls with 8 traps I got 30 prawns. And I lot of crab counted about 25 between 2 pulls with 3 traps and was able to keep 8 really nice rock hard ones great weather but no prawns:(

    im guessing there is lots of bait out near entrance island , i was flying santa around with my dad in his float plane and about 7 miles out there was around 100 pacific white sided dolphins jumping in a big pod, guessing there feeding on herring , maybe anchovys to,,?

    scouting for fish from a plane sounds fun! The dolphins would have been neat to see.

    Heading back to Nanaimo here this weekend. Has the fishing been good? is it worth putting the boat in the water for a few weeks? :cool:
