Easter Salmon

Fishing Department - Friday, April 14, 2017

The Easter bunny brought us Chinook!

 I'm hearing excellent reports of White and Red Springs two miles off the Fingers.

 Troll around 180ft deep with glow lures. Green glow Jughead was the best lure this morning. The fisherman I talked to got 4 keepers out of 7 fish, and the biggest was 15lbs.

I've also been told that the Peetz spoons are working. As a fan of Peetz equipment, I will definitely be running them when I get out.

Also, just in case anyone missed it, here's a link to the Killers whales swarming the boat in Howe Sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gxRWOy1cok

Tips up, Steve Vavrik
