    All this chat of reports and legal fish, and bbq's and not single report as of 245pm Friday? Maybe you are 'working' too hard over there? Shame on you...

    Out today not a sniff at tunstall bay down to Cowan point. Ok prawning, crabbing ok. Boat behind us ran across to Thrasher this morning saw them back at the dock with four nice springs. Damn! Should have gone beauty day out there. We had quite the experience out there with the kicker catching on fire! Holy Shit!! The excitement never ends with this boat!

    out yesterday for a couple of hours. Almost twenty boats around Thrasher. We found three keepers, 9.5-11.5 @ 135 on 'chovies, and of course lost one no stick that may have been bigger, returned two other undersize.

    There doesnt appear to be anything in the regs about a closure in those areas. ive been fishing the coal ports throughout january with good success, a few keepers each trip.

    Time to wake this thread from the dead. An associate of mine went across the way Sunday--Gulf Islands looking for the bounty which has provided some awesome days for local guides this winter and it was dead as a nail. Meanwhile an associate dredged a 14 pounder in front of the freighters Sunday an hour after high slack with undersize shaking the rods. A local angler jagged a nice one about 18 pounds from Tunstall and another local pro found some fish in Howe Sound as well.

    Fishin' Fever...catch it!!

    Time to think about getting your ride ready for the coming season...

    I fished Soames point yesterday with small lures. I got about a dozen soles 5 of which were decent size and I kept. I also felt a seal that was following me around rip off a few nice fish. I got a small octopus as well which was cool but I released it.

    Hooked two Springs south of sandheads and landed this one today. Saw a few others landed as well. Turned out to be a nice afternoon on the water. image.jpg
