Welcome to a brand new fishing season!
For me January marks the beginning of the fishing calendar (Even though our fishing licenses are valid until April 1st) It’s time to start cleaning up your vessel and gear. Make plans for any major repairs now, so you are 100% ready by April. Although really you should be fishing now.
Thrasher Rock is still producing lots of decent feeder springs. There are a few off Neck Point. Irish Cream spoons and glow flashers at 180ft and beyond.
Tent Island however, is your best bet for large Chinook right now. No change since the last report. 80ft down in 95ft water.
It’s also Vancouver boat show month. Jan 18-22. We are almost all packed up with great deals for the show. Most (but not all) of these deals with be available in store as well.
On a personal note I received a surprise Christmas present on Christmas day. A 7lb 11oz baby boy, although as a fisherman I’d round that up to 10lb. He showed up a little early so I haven’t bough him a fishing rod yet, but I’m thinking a Trophy rod and Abel reel might do. Of course I’ll have to use them for the first few years….
