Our odd ball salmon season continues. The good news is there are lots of feisty Coho all over the place. The Bad news is the big Chinook from last weekend have moved on to parts unknown. However they are just the forerunners of some very large 5 year old Chinook that are currently around Port Hardy. We will have a fun time when these big beast get down here.
There are some big Chinook around, but they are scattered looking for bait. If you can find some bait you should find some bigger fish. There are also still lots of smaller feeder springs (12-14lb) mixed in with the Coho. The Chinook are still taking Blue hootchies like Blue Splatter-Back and also chartreuse splatter back like T-Rex. Oddly these are more traditional Coho lures. And the Coho are taking Chinook lures such as Pink Sink and Green Glow spoons. Also the Coho are deep, up to 150ft. And the Chinook are deeper. Up to 240ft.
