Phillipe, Martin and Gilles from Quebec ventured out with us on April 24 and had a great time. The day started off with some strong NW winds and big seas out front so we ventured down to bear island and alley rock and fish there for a few hours….. fishing anchovies and a small blue, with green stripe nickel goldstar spoon. Martin was on the first fish, it was a high teener and got away to grow some more. Giles got the next one a real nice high teener, so he was able to get the skunk off the boat. We picked up a few more fish and released a few fish, turned out to be a nice day but the winds gradually picked to over 30 knots, seas getting bigger and white caps all over…. www.wildpacificcharters.com 250-735-9453 Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
Well it sure has been Windy with lots of torrential rains, haven’t seen storm action things like this for awhile, but it is better now than during fishing season. Glad the boat is out of the water and put away for the winter. Sometime in February I will pull the boat out and get out for some prawn and crab fishing as well as fishing around for a salmon or a few. I will move the boat into Ucluelet for April 1st, Ling cod opens up and there will be some nice winter chinooks just waiting for our hooks to swim by and add a little bling in there mouths….
Spring is here and we are getting anxious to go Fishing. Updates are being done on the boat, a diesel Espar forced air heater is being added, both motors have been serviced just a few more touch up things to do, washing & waxing ( Any Volunteers?) and then loading and hauling the boat into Ucluelet.
There has been some boats out fishing around Bear Island and Alley Rock, trying to work around some undesirable weather, when they can get out to our local spots they are getting a few salmon, some rock fish and a couple of halibut have also been caught. Ling cod season opens on April 1st.
Early season is a good time to get out and get a good assortment of red and white meat and some dungeness crabs.
Should have the boat in Ukee before the 15th of April. Check out our Spring Salmon Fishing Special. Get yourself in on some April/May spring salmon and cod fishing.
