Port Renfrew fishing report, April 2009

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Finally a fishing report out of Port Renfrew!

Mike Johns from Heavy Hauler made it out for the first time on April 15, taking the boat for a run west of Port Renfrew to dust off the cobwebs. He reports the weather was fine and he landed a 64 lb halibut, a couple of nice ling cod, and the crabbing was excellent. Not bad for a first trip of the year….hopefully plenty more goodness to look forward to.

Bud from Port Renfrew Marina and John from Jolly Rogers fishing also got out for a few hours, and reported a couple of halibut in the 30s somewhere near Carmanah.

The weather is clearing up off Vancouver Island’s west coast, the fish are out there, time for some fishing!

April 2 Port Renfrew Fishing Report

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Still no significant fishing to report off Port Renfrew. The halibut are out there, but the weather has been too iffy. Plus the halibut fishing has been pretty good right off the Victoria waterfront!

The season is coming up pretty soon though. To get the juices flowing, here’s a picture from Trevor of No Bananas Fishing taken last season. That beauty chinook salmon is 44 pounds, caught in early August off Logan Creek, by Mark Wiggins. Picture yourself holding that reel, zzzzzzzzzinging in your palm….good times are a’comin’….
