Pedder Bay - Vancouver Island - February 18th, 2007
supplied by: Island Outfitters
FISHING: Fair
Fishing was SLOWER with most boats getting a fish or two. The most productive area was from Whirl Bay to the Bedford Islands where anglers were catching springs up to 21 lbs. The big fish of the week was the 21 lb spring caught by Bob Dalziel in Whirl Bay. A 19 lb fish was landed near the Bedfords. The mouth of the bay near the can buoy has been slower, but still a few were caught there. The best fishing has been close to the bottom in 117 to 125 feet of water in Whirl Bay and a bit deeper if you’re fishing at the mouth of the bay. If you’re fishing bait, use anchovy or small herring in Watermelon, Mint Pearl or Purple Haze teaser heads. With plastic baits use the Cloverleaf, Army Truck or Purple Haze hootchies and squirts. With spoons try Silver/Brass, Green Silver, Mongoose, or Watermelon color combinations with 4” Coyotes, Gypsies and Titans.
HALIBUT- Several ‘Chicken” size 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 Jig.

FISHING: Poor
Fishing was SLOWER than in previous weeks. Most boats are getting a fish or two, but some boats are getting skunked. And again, because of recent weather conditions, most anglers are fishing the mouth of the bay and not very many are fishing Whirl Bay and Church Rock. The salmon are smaller as well, averaging from 5 to 6 lbs in size. Fish as close to the bottom as you can in 150 to 200 feet of water if you want to get into the winter springs. If you’re fishing bait, use anchovy or small herring in Watermelon, Mint Pearl or Purple Haze teaser heads. With plastic baits use the Cloverleaf, Army Truck or Purple Haze hootchies and squirts. With spoons try Silver/Brass, Green Silver, Mongoose, or Watermelon color combinations with 4” Coyotes, Gypsies and Titans.
HALIBUT - Halibut are closed for retention for the month of January.

Fishing was PRETTY GOOD when the weather wasn’t too bad. Because of the weather, most anglers are fishing the mouth of the bay and not many are fishing Whirl Bay and Church Rock. Laura and Ron Dalgliesh landed 3 springs from 10 to 12 lbs during a break in the weather this past week near the can bouy. The fish have not been real choosey about what they will strike.

FISHING: Good
Fishing was PRETTY GOOD when the weather wasn’t too bad. The marina reports that most boats that went out this past weekend returned with limits of spring weighing up to 12 lbs. However, there are some bigger fish around and Richard Jones weighed in a 20 lb winter spring at the marina. Nice fish! Although most of the salmon are less than 10 lbs, there are still lots of them.

FISHING: Good
Fishing was EXCELLENT when the weather wasn’t too bad. The marina reports that ALL boats that went out this past weekend returned with limits of spring weighing up to 12 lbs. Although most of the salmon are less than 10 lbs but there are lots of them. Also, most anglers are only fishing for about an hour or two to get their limits. Because of the weather, most of the anglers are fishing at the mouth of the bay near the can buoy. The fish have not been real choosey about what they will strike. Fish as close to the bottom as you can in 150 to 200 feet of water if you want to get the winter springs. If you’re fishing bait, use anchovy or small herring in Watermelon, Mint Pearl or Purple Haze teaser heads. With plastic baits use the Cloverleaf, Army Truck or Purple Haze hootchies and squirts. With spoons try Green Silver, Mongoose, Cop Car or Army Truck color combinations with 4” Coyotes, Gypsies and Titans. HALIBUT – Nothing new here to report as no halibut have been weighted in recently. Extra Large Herring or Octopus fished off of a spreader bar and close to the bottom works best to catch the big flatfish.

Pedder Bay - Vancouver Island - November 28th, 2005

FISHING: Good
Salmon fishing has been GOOD when the weather isn’t too bad according to the marina. Winter springs in the 6 to 7 lb size range are providing action around the Navy Can Buoy at the mouth of the bay. Work the deep hole there and you should get some action. Whirl Bay and Church Rock have also good spots for similar sized fish. Most anglers are using anchovies in glow or chrome teaser heads right now. Hootchies have been also been effective and Army Truck, White, Green & White and Purple Haze have been the best colors to use. If you want to troll spoons, be sure it has Green, Chartreuse or Yellow colors, and the best ones now are Coyotes, Gypsies or Titans. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was SLOW this past week, mostly due to weather and tides. Octopus, Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful way to catch the big flatfish recently. However, when the dogfish are around you might want to try a Lucky Jig or a Mudraker Jig instead of bait.

FISHING: Fair
Salmon fishing has been SLOW according to the marina. Most of the attention is still on the coho fishery and anglers are having their best luck well off shore near the fishing lanes. The coho have been running from 7 to 10 lbs. However, the “shakers” are pretty thick out there so bring lots of bait if that’s what you’re using. The winter springs have not shown up in large numbers yet but some fish in the 7 to 15 lb size range are being caught. Pedder Bay, Whirl Bay, and Church Rock would be the best spots to try for winter springs. Hootchies have been effective on the coho and Army Truck, White, Green & White and Pink Glow have been the best colors to use. If you want to troll spoons, be sure it has Green, Chartreuse or Yellow colors, and the best ones now are Coyotes, Gypsies or Titans. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was GOOD this past week for fish up to 57 lbs. Octopus, Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful way to catch the big flatfish recently. However, when the dogfish are around you might want to try a Lucky Jig or a Mudracker Jig instead of bait.

Salmon fishing has been SLOWING DOWN according to the marina. Most of the attention is on the coho fishery now and anglers are having their best luck well off shore near the fishing lanes. The coho have been running from 7 to 10 lbs. However, the “shakers” are pretty thick out there so bring lots of bait if that’s what you’re using. The winter springs have not shown up in large numbers yet but some fish in the 7 to 8 lb size range are being caught. Hootchies have been very effective on the coho and Army Truck, White, Green & White and Pink Glow have been the best colors to use. If you want to troll spoons, be sure it has Green, Chartreuse or Yellow colors, and the best ones now are Coyotes, Gypsies or Titans. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was QUIET this past week because of little effort put in by anglers. Octopus, Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful way to catch the big flatfish recently. However, when the dogfish are around you might want to try a Lucky Jig or a Mudracker Jig instead of bait.

Salmon fishing was PRETTY GOOD this past week according to the marina. All of the attention is on the coho fishery now, as most of the mature springs have gone by and the winter springs have not shown up in any numbers yet. The coho have been caught mostly out on the shipping lanes. However, the “shakers” are pretty thick out there so bring lots of bait if that’s what you’re using. Hootchies have been very effective on the coho and Army Truck, White, Green & White and Pink Glow have been the best colors to use. If you want to troll spoons, be sure it has Green, Chartreuse or Yellow colors, and the best ones now are Coyotes, Gypsies or Titans. HALIBUT – Halibut fishing was QUIET this past week so there are no weights to report. Octopus, Extra Large Herring or Mackerel fished off of a spreader bar has been the most successful way to catch the big flatfish recently. However, when the dogfish are around you might want to try a Lucky Jig or a Mudracker Jig instead of bait.
