Bounty of the sea

Great fishing from Sooke to Victoria for Halibut and Chinook Salmon.  Slot limits are still in place  check the regulations before you head out! (wild salmon between 25 and 67 cm, hatchery greater than 45 cm).  After Jun 14, the slot limit is expected to open up to retention of 1 Chinook over 67 cm, wild or hatchery and 1 between 45 cm and 67 cm.   Reports of some larger fish showing up with salmon in the low teens to low twenties and a couple close to 30 lbs have come in.

Lots of halibut in the 40-70 lb range brought in during the Sooke Halibut derby.

Coho killers and spoons are working well for salmon with reports of some larger fish showing up with chinook in the low twenties and a few close to 30 lbs already.

Foghorn Fishing Charters and No Bananas Fishing Charters has been keeping clients happy with some great fishing.
Happy clients !  (Foghorn top and bottom left, No Bananas bottom right).

Halibut and Hatchery Coho

Fishing in Sooke area has been picking up with regular reports of successful halibut fishing  and chinook salmon in the mid teens.  With the longer days there is once again the chance for some after work fishing.

King Coop's Fishing Charters had some very happy 12 year old anglers last week who came back with a halibut each, 40 and 52 lbs from the "greater Sooke" area (spot unnamed, can say it is to the east of Sooke ;-).

This Saturday and Sunday (May 16/17) there is a work party to clip coho salmon at the Jack Brooks Hatchery, access is off Young Lake road in Sooke.  The gates will be open at 8:30 am and clipping will take place from 9 am till 1 pm each day.  This is your opportunity to help ensure there are hatchery coho to catch in a few years time !  Last year there were 48,000 coho clipped , this year there are approximately 33,000 to be clipped.  No experience or supplies are needed, just dress for the weather.
