Springtime in Sooke

The salmon fishing in Sooke is reported to be pretty slow these days. There are reports of a few smaller winter springs up to 10 pounds, but the fish and the reports are few and far between.

Those venturing out on the waters lately have mostly been chasing halibut. There haven't been any really big ones reported yet, but there's regularly "chickens" caught from out front of Sooke Bluffs, to the west to Jordan River, and to the east to Victoria and out to Constance Bank.

The spring weather has started early, with mild temperatures and sunshine, but also with some wind. So...pick your day weather-wise, and it's a beauty out there.

On a non-fishing note, Sooke has caught Olympics fever. Check out the website, Sooke is hosting a booth at the O-Zone facility in Richmond. Drop by and say hi to the volunteers at the booth. There's an excellent contest giveaway on the website, make sure you sign up...2 fishing trips as well as other great prizes. And check out this video, it really nicely highlights Sooke's natural beauty and the abundant recreation on the ocean and around the town.

Sooke Fishing Report, February 9th

There have not been too many salmon fishing reports around Sooke this week. From the sounds of things, Sooke's salmon fishing is a bit slow.

Quite a few reports of halibut caught from Sooke to Victoria though. With the recent Feb 1 opening, anglers seems excited to chase these tasty flat fish.

The photo to the right is from "Striper Jack", out for his first trip this year and got the lucky day he was due -- picked up three halibut at East Constance Bank. He was fishing in 170-195 feet depths and caught halibut weighing 18, 19.5, and 24.5 pounds. He says "I took the picture with small guys to help make the fish look bigger".

Trevor from No Bananas Fishing Charters reports two excellent days of February halibut fishing off Albert Head. The first day, they landed 5 fish and lost a couple of others, with the halibut 20-35lbs. The second day they fished for 4 hours and landed 8 halibut, as well as losing a couple. Lots of dogfish to wade through, but the halibut were there. Lots of 270 foot depth, using mackerel bait, salmon bellies, and mudracker jigs.

Beautiful sunny weather and calm seas so far this week....get out there and try your luck!
