Sooke Halibut Fishing

Halibut season is open once again in Sooke. Today was a very windy, stormy day, not a day to be at sea, but a few people got out yesterday on opening day to chase a few flat fish.

Some reports from opening day...

Trevor from No Bananas Charters caught a 40 and 25 pound halibut off Victoria, and let another go near 25 pounds. He reported there were tons of dogfish, so the halibut were caught on white grubs

Dave from Ocean Dreams Charters caught a 30 pounder west of Sheringham Point

Roy from Blue Wolf Fishing Charters caught a 38 and a 24 pounder off Sooke, very quickly turned into a tasty fish and chip meal.

And that should be enough to get you keen to get out there and get some for yourself!

On the salmon front, no recent reports to pass along. But, unfortunately, the "slot limit" regulation was put in place early this year, starting now until June 17th: "During this time period and in this area the daily limit is two (2) chinook salmon per day which may be wild or hatchery marked between the size limit of 45 cm and 67 cm or hatchery marked only chinook over 67 cm in length." That means winter springs are still catchable, but only to about 8 pounds. Nice BBQ fish anyway.
