Early May Report
Things have perked up locally and in the Gulf Islands. The last few days have seen some better numbers of fish off the South End of Bowen Island, the Gulf Islands and into Vancouver Harbour. There are obviously some slow periods, but persistance typically pays off with some good hook ups! Right now you can expect to hook 3 to 6 fish a trip, and if you catch the bite even more!
The chinook fishery that takes place off the southern side of Bowen Island usually lights up during the middle of April.. This year the fishery has gotten going a little bit late. None the less, they are here now!! Anchovies have been by far our best producers down 60-120 feet. Other anglers are reporting good results on green and white hootchies, coyote spoons, and gypsy spoons.
From now until late June extended 10 hour charters to the Gulf Islands are a great option. May and June are typically VERY consistent over there and it is not uncommon to hook a dozen chinook salmon a trip over there! In addition there is good opportunity to fish for ling cod up to 25 pounds on our Gulf Island trips!
Crabbing remains good in the harbour and crab traps are dropped on every charter!
