July Chinook and Halibut fishing has been stellar and we are catching fish in multiple locations which shows how many fish are on the banks right now. Big Bank has been very consistent, the Inside and Outside Lighthouse bank and Inside South Bank are catching good numbers of Chinook. Big Bank has fish all over it right now and you can get Chinook at the north end of the Shallows or south of the Rats Nose. Halibut have been consistent in quite a few different places. Florencia Bay has been consistent as well as Wya point though both of those spots have slowed down in the last couple days. Silver Horde glow 4' spoons have been working well at both Big Bank and Lighthouse Bank. Most of the larger halibut we are getting on anchor though we are trolling up halibut as well on glow and non glow spoons and hutchies.
Below are some of the pics from the last 10 days. If you don't see your picture here please send it to us!
Chinook fishing has been good in both inshore and offshore waters. Big Bank has been consistent, Long Beach has had some decent bites and Florencia Bay has been steady. Big Bank has the biggest numbers of total fish and Chinook, Coho and Halibut fishing has been very good there the past few days. For technical fishing in close to shore, Florencia has been producing some bigger fish and some screaming runs. All sizes of spoons and glow hutchies are working at Big Bank. Halibut are being caught on the troll and on anchor.

Sometimes you have a hard time finding new words to describe what has been happening for weeks in a row. Awesome. Chinook (King) salmon fishing has been very good and we have been getting great average size fish for this time of year. Fishing has been much better than last year at this time and we are getting great weather to go with it!! Some days are good and some are just nuts. We did have slower day mixed in to keep us in check, but we have caught a lot of fish since then. We have been fishing mostly protected water lately which really helps with the scenic pictures and anyone who could feel a little queasy offshore.
Small spoons and glow hutchies have been working well in shore. We are also getting a few coho showing up as well. Halibut fishing has seen some dry spells in close to shore, but we have picked up a couple the last 2 days. Its high time you get your lines in the water here–the Chinook are just going nuts!
Below are some pics from the past week!
Since our last posted report June 11, fishing has just been going bonkers. Our guests are limiting out every day with Chinook salmon and most days they are getting opportunities to get into 20 plus pound Chinook. There have been a few stories of big ones that got away, though there are also some nice ones caught as well. We are only fishing a short distance from the harbour in somewhat protected water. The weather has been balmy and the fishing hot–what more could you ask for a on vacation! We have been getting July like weather and fish. We are using small spoons and white glow hutchies as the Chinook are feeding on both squid and small feed. We are also getting a few halibut as well, though we haven't tried much for them the past week.
Below are some pics since the last report!
Fishing has really picked up the past week and we are getting some good sized Chinook showing up with the largest this week at 27 and 28lbs. We have also had a few in the 20lb range as well. Our most common bait the past week has been anchovies and small 3 inch spoons. Our small spoons are Silver Horde and Coyotes and the hotspots have been South Bank, Austin, Sail Rock and Great Bear. The small Silver Horde spoons have great action and come in quite a few colors that are working. It been harder to get offshore for Halibut the past few days as we have been getting some stronger northwest winds and have been fishing mostly protected water.
Here are some pics below and if you are looking to get a few large Chinook salmon they are here and it is time to get fishing!
