The fishing exploded this trip. It was Langara in all her brilliance. The “bite” came on first thing in the morning, mid day, and again in early evening. Double, and triple “headers” were common. The fish were everywhere…on the service, ten feet, down to thirty feet. Guests fishing for halibut at 160’ were catching Chinook.
On Tuesday, herring moved in to island like we have not seen this year. Herring schools the size of a football field, were spread out from the Lighthouse to Cohoe Point. They moved in on the ebb, then out on the flood. It is awesome! The place is lit up!! Whales, eagles, sea birds, and all species of fish are going crazy on the herring.
The weather continues to be perfect for fishing as well. It’s been overcast, with mists and occasional showers with very manageable winds. Fish are hitting everything, with herring and spoons for those who have limit of Coho being presentation of choice.
May the fish gods continue to smile!!
