Vancouver Winter Chinook...december 22nd!!

After a couple slowish winter chinook outings in the last 10 days, today was very encouraging.   Not only did we have a shot at 5 winter chinook salmon, but there was an incredible amount of bait in the harbour! After a  quick 10 minute run from Granville Island, we got the gear in the water at 915 am and trolled over consistent bait balls for a couple hours with not even a nibble.  At 1130 things started to perk up and in the next couple hours we had a shot a handful of winter chinook.    We landed a beauty, released one that was 2 cm shy of legal, lost a legal looking fish after it jumped, and missed a couple more good looking hits.  With the amount of bait we saw today, it wouldnt surprise me if we are going to get some continued decent fishing this week.  The fish we kept was stuffed with 3 to 4 inch herring.  Crabbing was ok with a few keepers, and lots just below the legal size limit.   Are boats are in the water through the holidays!  Our big 30 foot Grady White has an amazing diesel heater on it keeping it nice and toasty in the cabin!  Even on a cold wet day like today, we were comfortable watching the rods from the cabin!  We are available on short notice through the holidays.  If you see a break in the weather....please give us a call to get out there! We are still offering our gift certificates at 10 percent off our posted rates until December 24th.  They make great gifts and you can also buy them yourself if you want to save 10 percent off fishing this year!  Email us at  or call us at 604 763 5460 to get hooked up with this great fishing deal!   Merry Christmas from Bon Chovy Fishing Charters!               604 763 5460     [gallery order="DESC" columns="2"]
