May 25th Fish Report For Esperanza/Nootka Sound

By Reel Obsession, 🕔Tue, May 29th, 2018


Halibut fishing has been excellent in all the regular spots. The pinnacles at 8 mile, the C&B, and the “T” have all been very consistent. Mackerel has been the best bait, but octopus and herring are also catching fish. We are getting lots of fish over the legal slot size, so make sure you have your tape measure. Try to use circle hooks to keep the fish from swallowing trebles and J hooks then injuring them upon release. Do your best to leave the fish in the water and avoid bringing them onboard for a picture. Halibut are not that good looking!

Salmon fishing has been a little slow, but more fish have been showing up by the day. The 120-140 foot contour from Low rock to Grassy have been the best spots. The bait is very small, so match your lures accordingly. The Gibbs Delta Skinny-G in No-Bananas and Bon Chovy colors have been our best lures. Trolled on 4-5 foot leaders behind Oki purple glow/silver and red glow/jelly fish colors have been working well. The size of the fish is good right now, with average fish in the mid to high teens.

We recently had one boat become available June 4-6 and also July 6-8. These are the only boats available until August 31st. Give me a call or drop me a line to get in on our world class fishery and enjoy some incredible west coast hospitality at our West Coast Vancouver Island Fishing Lodge.
