Author Topic: Vancouver Island Ocean Fishing!

Hey, guys!
So my dad and i have recently bought a boat, and we have been wanting to fish for cod, rock fish, flounder and sockeye salmon for years in the Vancouver Island area. We are very new to ocean fishing and salmon fishing in the ocean.
So my question is, where is a good place to start?
What are some good bays/areas for bottom fishing? And what jigs/lures are good for cod/flounder.
I have searched the web for hours, but i haven't found much.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

So i am guessing just boat around until i find a nice bottom and jig from there?
What depth is good for cod/rockfish.
Were thinking of going to Ucluelet

I run the same jigs in white and green there awesome works great

Thanks a lot guys.
I definitely have an idea of what to do now.
What about for halibut, do i put some salmon on a hoochie and just let it float around on the bottom until one of them comes around, or jig it aswell?

What is a spinnow exactly?
I looked for it on google but couldn't find anything.
Is it like a white rubber grub, or like a white metal fish lure?

I see, i will definetely give it a try
