Excellent fishing reported in Port Renfrew this past week. Port Renfrew Marina reports that Camper Creek has been the hotspot for big springs, with 8 “tyees” above 30 pounds caught in the past week.
Halibut fishing has been good off Carmanah and out on Swiftsure Bank. Lots of coho around on the bank, though smaller — bring your light tackle and have some fun!
Trevor from No Bananas Fishing Charters reported a good day “Fishing in Renny was decent today. Fished springs off Logan for a few hours first thing and hit 3 springs largest was high 20′s also caught lots of coho all4-6lbs, funny thing was every one was a hatchery. Moved down to Bonilla and set the anchor for halibut in 90ft of water and it was boiling with coho — 5 hours of straight coho on the suface so we jigged them up all day while we picked up the odd haly. Out of about 30 coho’s we had at the side of the boat, every one was a hatchery fish. The boys that were out at the bank had a good day with limits of springs and haly in short order. Lots of 20 pound plus springs offshore as well as a 40 out there also. Still tons of crabs. I’d say it’s good fishing on the beach and excellent offshore!”
That sounds like it is worth getting out there for a fish!
Here’s a video of a fishing trip with Blair from Swell Time Charters last week … good times!
