    Only saw two small school from the Nanaimo to HS Bay ferry yesterday. Visibility was very good. Didn't ask to go look at the sounder. I think I'll do two more WCVI trips before trying at the end of August.
    They go by Ukee, but the place I would try (the deeper area before you get to Amphitrite Bank) is loaded with commercial crab pots usually.

    I find they don’t update the app until the regulations are in effect. So watch for the change on Wednesday.
