Oak Bay - Vancouver Island - February 18th, 2007
supplied by: Island Outfitters
FISHING: Good
Fishing was GOOD for winter springs ranging from 3 to 6 lbs out on the Flats the last we heard, but we haven’t heard of anyone fishing there this past week. The fish have been in the 80 to 120 foot depths, chasing needlefish. However, there doesn’t seem to be a seal problem in Oak Bay so when you do get a fish you’re actually likely to land it. Most of the action has been coming on Glo Below or Green/White squirts and hootchies.
HALIBUT - No halibut were weighted in at the marina. Extra Large herring and/or Octopus are the most popular baits. However, if the dogfish become a nuisance, you can use Mudraker or Lucky Jigs or the new Glow in the Dark bullet Jigs.

And even when it was fishable, the fishing was only FAIR for winter springs averaging 2 to 4 lbs out on the Flats. The fish have been in the 80 to 120 foot depths, chasing needlefish. Most of the action was coming on Glo Below squirts and hootchies. Also, there aren’t too many seals on the flats right now.

Southeast swells have kept the anglers off the water in Oak Bay for most of the month. Previously, the fishing was GOOD for winter springs weighing from 6 to 10 lbs out on the Oak Bay Flats. The fish were in the 120 to 140 foot depths chasing the bait. Most of the action is coming on Squirts and spoons. The best Squirts have been the Purple Haze and Jellyfish. The best spoons have been green and silver 4” Coyotes, Titans or Gypsys. Green/silver or Purple Glow Hot Spot flashers have been good. HALIBUT - Bill Zaalberg decided to buck the weather and swells and went out on December 31st to the Oak Bay Flats at 11:00 AM and by 11:30 AM had a 60 lb halibut onboard.

FISHING: Good
South east swells on calmer days kept the anglers off the water in Oak Bay. Previously, the fishing was GOOD for winter springs out on the Oak Bay Flats. A few boats had been out on the Flats and they had been catching winter springs from 6 to 10 lbs. The fish are in the 120 to 140 foot depths chasing the bait. Most of the action is coming on Squirts and spoons. The best Squirts have been the Purple Haze and Jellyfish. The best spoons have been green and silver 4” Coyotes, Titans or Gypsys. Green/silver or Purple Glow Hot Spot flashers have been good. HALIBUT - Nothing new to report here as no one’s been fishing for halibut in the awful weather or in Oak Bay. Extra Large Herring or Octopus fished off of a spreader bar and close to the bottom works best to catch the big flatfish.

FISHING: Good
Salmon fishing was PICKING UP on the Flats and in The Gap when the weather wasn’t too bad. Some limit catches of 5 to 8 lb springs came in off the flats yesterday. The fish were right on the bottom in 95 to 110 feet of water. For springs, Anchovy or Strip is always productive for trolling, especially when fished in glow teaser heads with glow flashers at this time of year. The best patterns for hootchies and squirts have been the Glow Patterns, Purple Haze and Green/White. Green Glow or Purple Glow flashers have been good. If you want to troll spoons, use Gypsies, Titans or Coyotes in Green/Glow, Green/Silver or Blue/Silver spoons or a Blue Haze Devil Tail. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was GOOD for halibut out on the Flats when the weather wasn’t too bad. Octopus and/or Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful combination to catch the big flatfish recently. You might want to try a Lucky Jig or a Mudraker Jig instead of bait if the dogfish are around.

FISHING: Fair
Salmon fishing was QUIET on the Flats and in The Gap, but very few anglers are fishing there so it’s hard to tell what’s really going on here. Most anglers have been going all the way out to Coyote Bank or east of Discovery Island but are not having much luck out there.

The best patterns for hootchies and squirts have been the Glow Patterns, Purple Haze and Green/White. Green Glow or Purple Glow flashers have been good. If you want to troll spoons, use Gypsies, Titans or Coyotes in Green/Glow, Green/Silver or Blue/Silver spoons or a Blue Haze Devil Tail. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was GOOD fro halibut up to 50 lbs out on the Flats. Octopus and/or Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful combination to catch the big flatfish recently.
