Running out of time. Have to go so here is a teaser of the size of filet. I will do the post tonight (image)
Fished the sand heads last sunday and it was phenomenal. Sounder was constantly picking up large schools of fish and they were damn near jumping in the boat. Got one smaller spring too.
Coho fishing in the river hasnt really started yet. The river needs more water like Brands51 mentioned. Having said that, there are reports that there are good numbers of coho in the inlet and in barkley sound right now..so they are on their way!

I was out Sunday morning. Not a lot of boats out there. Not much happening down by Franklin at sunrise but on the way back at China Creek out in the middle there were a number of Coho jumping around the tide rips. We had one about 10 pounds at the boat but never had a chance to net it before it got off. Lots of coho out there.

I know of alot of people catching great size fish out of Ladysmith this year. Has anyone else had any luck? I've heard of Halibut even being caught out front of Tent and Porlier.

My wife and I were up in the Qualicum Bay area on Sept. 6, 7 & 8 to fish the Little Qualicum estuary for Chinooks. We fished the estuary on Saturday and Sunday with no luck; the weather was just too nice--sunny, hot and calm. We met Gil there on Sunday afternoon and he wasn't having any luck, either. On Monday we decided to [...]

Someone told me they heard not many fish were caught. I did go out last Sunday morning, fishing at sunrise and in an hour I played 5 fish, landed an 18 pound chinook, 7 1/2 pound coho, lost two coho and let a small chinook go in about an hour. I went down almost to Franklin Narrows and stayed out in the middle. About 30-40 feet [...]
