Sooke fishing report, March 23, 2010

Some great fishing in and around Sooke this week, it looks like South Vancouver Island waters have good early season fishing once again.

Trevor from No Bananas Fishing Charters has had some fun days lately. Last week he had success fishing Albert Head for salmon, with 8 spring salmon up to 12 lbs. Purple haze hootchie was the killer and the pink haze a close second. For halibut, some great action with 8 fish to the side of the boat in a 5 hour charter -- 25-40 lbs, caught on herring and mackeral. Today, he headed out to the 3 humps off the Border Bank at daylight. After getting the anchor out and the first rod down by 715 am, the first halibut was on by 730 and they just kept coming. They had their 5 fish in the boat by 930 and even released one around 25lbs. The halibut were caught in 250 feet depth and all baits worked well, octopus ,salmon bellies, herring and mackeral.

Steve from Seawind Fishing Charters reported good fishing at Jordan River last week. Fishing in only 100 feet of water, he caught 5 one day (15-25 pounds, with one BIG one lost halfway up) and 7 the day before (15-40 pounds). All halibut caught on herring and mackerel. Steve also reported four hatchery spring salmon caught at the Trap Shack, 15-22 pounds, in 70-90 feet depth, on anchovies and spoons.

Sooke Fishing Report, March 2010

Gord from Foghorn Fishing Charters reports some fun days fishing for halibut. He has found the halibut at 150-250 foot depths,using Bluewaterbait mackerel and sardines. However, he reports the dogfish have been bad so far, very early for them in numbers. The photos are from some happy clients, including Danny from up island with his first halibut!

Here's the "Sooke Hookers" (Dave, Jamie, Aaron, Brad) with some dinner after a day's "chicken farming" just west of Sooke this weekend.

Salmon fishing is still spotty, though better than in February. Trevor from No Bananas Fishing Charters passes on a hint of some great reports coming from Albert Head and McAulley Point in Victoria. (Trevor also passes along a photo of some happy anglers with some tasty looking halibut)

DFO has set a "slot limit" regulation for salmon fishing in Juan de Fuca, meaning no wild salmon can be kept over 67cm (26"), somewhere towards 8-10 pounds. Larger hatchery salmon can be retained. This slot limit is in place until May 21st.

Good luck out there!
