Fishing Report April 19, 2013
Fishing hasn’t been on fire for Chinook salmon, but we have been picking up a few nice ones, in the teens, on most our trips. We’ve been using needlefish hoochies and coyote spoons around Great Bear rocks. The spoons are producing better, though we have been running a spoon on one side and a needlefish hoochie on the other side. The weather has been better the last few days and that always makes fishing easier. The great thing about early spring fishing is you will get some crab as well. We are also catching lingcod around the rocks. There are a few halibut around, though we haven’t been targeting them too much. Our guide Dan was fishing for some lingcod on the way home and picked up a 40 lb halibut.
