Howdy all, I recently fixed up a boat and am looking forward to some ocean fishing for the first time. I figure that while out fishing for salmon, it would be good to drop some prawn traps and check them on the way back. One small problem, I have no clue as to where to the prawns are. I have a depth sounder/fish finder but no GPS. Any info would be appreciated.

There is a great spot between Mayne Island and Pender Island. You will need a good sounder and find the shelf at the west end of the entrance to the straight between the Islands. Once you found the shelf follow it until it drops off from about 80' and drops sharply to around 300'. We have caught many great Prawns at this spot. Be careful though, the current WILL take your traps into deeper water if you don't put lots of weight into them.

Good luck.
