    Sat I Hali fished JR with two moms, and three 12 year olds. The water had a 1/2 foot chop and it was sun/cloudy.

    Fishing was great during the Ebb and we had four on and they landed two (not that easy for a 12 yr old) and the biggest as 47lb. Only caught one dog but I got four gray cod which I very rarely see in the Jordon River area.
    Salmon belly was the bait most fish hit on.

    During our trip back to Sooke we probably past 20 boats hali fishng.

    Saw you coming off the water as I was headed out. Where did you hit your fish? We trolled infront of fraser and aldridge not even a hit. Saw very little bait.

    Well then Wolfie, I guess I better get you your .25 cents so that I catch some fish this year. Ive had some good days of fishing but all of them were way down at the bluffs and having our boat at cheanuh its not a short run down that way.

    You might want to give Pedder a try. Much closer. I picked up a couple of decent springs and lost another in an hour on Sunday while waiting for the tides and wind to lighten for hali fishing. The usual tack from the can to the hole. Tons of fish on the screen.

    You guessed wright F.G the place to be @ the moment is the bluffs spoons & plastic @120' ft has been the norm.

    Went out from Cheanuh to Secretary/Bluffs/Trailer Park. Water was not nice to start with then got worse as the day went on. Got a good fish on to start off the Sooke harbour mouth, then a seal got it. We tried to get the gear back for half an hour but the seal won (did get the flasher back but the hook ended up in the seal's lower jaw). One hatchery kept and a small fish released then ran back to Beecher Bay at 1:30. Saw a boat get a fish when we arrived so we put the gear back out. Half hour later we got a 15 lb. down at 170 ft., went in after one more pass.

    Well Wolfie, Double or nothing sounds fine to me! Plus the pinks always help the hali bait bill! And they arnt half bad on a 6 weight.

    Was out tuesday got one 8 pound hatchery off Swordfish Isl.

    Out friday trolled pedder can bouy to hole for 3 hours not even a hit. Marked a little bit of bait but not alot.

    Might try on sunday.
