Just in from a late afternoon fish and thought I would update the fishing here at Langara. Weather is dry and fishing is happening mostly on the east side, as the northwest winds are stirring things up out west. Included here is a great pic of Lacy Island today taking a royal beating from the surf.
Fishing over the last two or three days has been very consistent for springs in the 14 to 18 lb class, with the better fish into the low mid twenties, and a very few tyee class fish trickling through. We had three tyee on trip three, all caught by female anglers. Trip four is now underway and we had a single tyee at 31 lbs taken. These tyee class fish are a bit of a rarity thus far this season, and it makes an angler think twice before retaining such a fish with so many eating size springs 18 to 20 lbs around. Always the anglers decision in the end, but trust me, pretty cool to have your guide carefully release such specimens.
The fishing slowed this pm on the east side, I trolled up a nice Halibut with my guests, but the springs were smaller in size. Our largest today on my skiff was 25. Bud snuck a 26 lb fish in for his guests, this fish from Mac, and Steve pounded out west for a 31 with his guests. Other than that, high teeners were the nicer fish today. We grabbed ours 225 on the cable!
Halibut fishing out west is on hold with the two meter seas, but the boys, chicken specialist Matt Connelly, and his gang of jiggers headed off Pillar to Matts secret spot for a quick limit of 12 to 14 lbers….Bellies and Jhooks a must for this fishery.
So we will see what tomorrow brings, stand by for a report early next week.
