We are getting close to the end of summer and the big spawners are finally showing up. We have large Chinook getting taken anywhere from 20 to 220ft. Best lures locally are Pink Sink, Evil Maverick, and Twisted Sista flasher.
Jigging is still very good. P Line brand 'Sassin Jigs where incredibly effective last night around 5 Fingers. There are still a lot of undersized fish in the area, but there are more big ones mixed in. The key is to find the bait and stay with it.
If your going to the Alberni derby the best lures have been Skinny G in gold/chrome, Cop Car spoons, our custom painted Herring Aid plugs and Raspberry flashers.
Back in Nanaimo, prawning is very good right now off Gabriola. Get down 400 ft. It's slow south of Dodds Narrows.
