The reports for this week aren’t as great as last week, but still solid for this early in the season. The schools of salmon off Neck Point have moved South to the East side of Gabriola and Thrasher Rock area. Guys are still picking up decent fish off the Fingers, but they are just having to work a little harder for them.
There is an interesting mix of bait sizes. Some herring hatchlings close to shore, use Irish Cream and Green Glow Coho killers, or 3″ spoons to match them. And farther from shore are large mature herring Use 5-6″ Cop Car or Irish Cream and Green Glow spoons. Alternatively try plugs like the 500 series or better still, a 639 to match them.
There are lots of fish just North of us that should be here any day. Comox was doing really well with Canuck Cream and POP spoons, and right now French Creek has the fish. I expect Neck Point to heat up again as soon as this weekend.
