    Thought I would try and get something started for the Port Hardy area. Fished Friday at Daphne Point with hootchies to start then switched over to spoons, no luck. Went out this morning and trolled Duval for three hours at low tide tide change, landed one and lost another, both on anchovies.

    It was 24#, fought like hell. Probably ran 100yds on its first run then, shot across the surface like a torpedo. Lost another smaller fish about ten minutes after boating that one.

    Love it when they take a long run like that! I wont make it to Hardy until the 3rd week of June this year. But with the forecast, should be some awesome fishing

    Just returned from 3 days up in Hardy, fished Nahwitti bar and Cape Sutil on Friday, boated halibut and thick with bright red springs, Taylor bank on Saturday for a couple of chicken halibut and then Duval yesterday but only undersized Springs.

    Just got back from Pt hardy also. Fished all day Friday at Nahwitti bar for halibut. Got skunked. Slept in on saturday fished everywhere for halibut and finally found a few at Pine island area. Only targeted halibut and was very slow for us.

    The Fishing in and around Hardy bay has been steadily picking up for springs over the past few weeks. Went out twice last time out of camp, 1 for 2 on the first day, 2 for 3 the second. Fish between 10-15lbs. All fish caught inside of Duval. I don't have a big enough boat to make the run out to Cape Sutil but I've heard the fishing has been killer for the past few weeks up there. Seen a pick of my buddies haul from up north today, 5 springs and 4 halis. Hope this helps.
