Fishing Report: Ucluelet, BC. September 18th, 2018
Our September fishing was better than expected for Chinook, Coho and Halibut. The fall returning Chinook (Kings) were close to the shore and most days saw fast action. We had a few days where it was slow in the morning and then lights out in the afternoons. That’s fishing. Actually some of the days were just catching. Some days had many double hookups. Chinook fishing close to shore is always a little more interesting. The fish obviously don’t want to come right into the boat—but these fish do everything possible to spit the hook. Therefore hook to catch rate isn’t 1-1. But that is what makes it fun. Fishing stayed relatively hot up to the 16th minus about 5 days of stormy/ weather. Then things got nice again but the fishing had slowed down to just a few hook ups per morning by the 18th.
Coho was strong on the Bank as normal. We didn’t target them much since we were fishing in close to shore for the Chinook. When we wanted Halibut most trips were fast action but were successful. We got some perfect sized ones around the 40 lb mark. Overall fishing was good and there was a lot of happy faces. This is our last report as we are now closed for the season.
