Lots of tales of nice halibut being caught in Sooke waters. Luke from VIP Fishing Charters
reports: "Darryl and Johanne from Edmonton Alberta, caught a 20lb
and 27lb halibut yesterday. It was their first time fishing on the ocean and not the
last time, they will be back for more action in August. We also had 7
crabs in the cage on our way back. The action was non-stop, we had about
10 big hits but hard to hook them on, as they stole our baits so fast. Also some ratfish were around. That is what you want, if the ratfish are
there the Halibut are not too far!"
Sounds like there's some fun salmon fishing too ... most boats seem to report a keeper or two in the 6-8 pound range.
Just have to dodge those April showers, otherwise some nice fishing days out there lately.
