Author Topic: fishing for halibut

anyone know where to go for halibut.
will be going to vancouver island 05-11-04. to fish salt
for 4 days. just got a boat. and need help. thankyou

Vancouver Island is a huge place just where will you be?

will be fishing out of port renfrew

Tides are what counts-have you checked?-I'm too lazy to.Too big tides and you'll have trouble getting up/down the river.
Anyway up @ whatsitsname lighthouse (200 ft or so deep) or if you have the boat/guts/GPS try Swiftsure.
Best you hire a guide to show you how to fish the area and watch for that rock on the right as you leave the Harbour-it's hidden @ high tide and a few have clipped themselves on it-no fun.

thankyou rodbreaker no problem with deep water 30 year retired coast guard just retired and am wanting to have some fun. in new places. i have all electronics gps radar
depth sounder maps on cd rom but no gps numbers for up there. thankyou for the info. about the rocks. i know a
little about swiftshore but i have been told there is a
part of swiftshore that is closed to all fishing. if
you know the gps setting or if you might know where i may
aquire them this would be most helpfull.
thanks again. just for the halibut.
