deep six

The major tide changes of the last week or so has really made for some great fishing outside of Flora Isle (south end of Hornby). Every trip we have made out to that area has resulted in some very nice catches, averaging in the 23 lb range. With the amount of bait this whole area is showing (from Chrome Island to the open Strait) we should see good numbers of migrating fish staying and feeding here again this year. At the low slack late yesterday afternoon we ventured much farther out into Georgia Strait than we normally do (about 1 1/2 miles) both boats we had out were completely surrounded by large schools of 2" herring the whole time. Although we had no hook-ups that far out, it was nice to see the herring returning to historic levels . After heading back to fish the reefs around Flora it wasn't long before the fish started hitting again. Most of the hook-ups are taking place about an hour before and up to two hours after the low slack. The larger fish seem to like a 5 1/2 ft leader or longer with a slower than normal trolling speed. We have been have great success with a 5" silver and lime green Coyote spoon trolled behind a # 10 Abe'N'Al silver prism flasher and an Army Truck Coyote behind the new Hotspot Plaid flasher. Tribune Bay is producing some nice fish in and around the buoy with most fish hitting around 66-75 Ft and at the same time the fish at Flora seem to be feeding. Although there have been about the same numbers of fish being caught at Tribune, most of the larger fish seem to be hanging around the outside the south end of Flora. It is shaping up to be another great season in this neck of the woods and with some Coho being seen feeding off of Norris rocks, we can start running some surface lines with some light tackle to battle these feisty fish.....for angling info or charters give us a call at 1-800-577-6966 or 25 hr pager at 250)954-6500.. check out our website at .. ..see you on the water....
