Vancouver Island fishing lodgeWe went from a scorching hot heat wave to a cold snap in a matter of days here on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Salmon numbers are starting to climb, but still a little sporadic. The halibut and Ling cod numbers have been strong, though when it hasn't been to windy to get out to the Big Bank.

Here are the catch of the day weigh-ins:
