The feeders are feeding. Large numbers of feeder Spring Salmon have moved into our waters. And the big Harrison white springs should be showing soon too.
At this time about half of the feeders are undersized and most of the rest are barely legal (nothing wrong with that in my books though;) There are some larger ones as well, at least one nice 15lber at the ramp this week.
There are still large numbers of herring around so the feeder Springs will be fattening up quickly. There are also some huge schools of Pollock schooled up off the fingers
Best bets are Home land Security spoon, or green glow teaser heads 200ft. down right on the bottom of the East side of Gabriola. Last week one fishermen reported 6 legal out of 17 salmon in that location. However other guys had skunks in the same area, but that's fishing.
Prawns are open as of April 1st in most areas of Nanaimo. So get out and get them while the getting's good. And if you get too many feel free to give them to me.
Also a reminder Ling and Rock Cod are closed in area 17 (Nanaimo) They should open May 1st. They are open on the West Coast as of April 1st.
