Limiting out on Halibut

Canadian Princess Resort - June 23, 2008

Vancouver Island halibut fishingOver the last week we have been limiting on our halibut trips with an average weight of 15 to 20 lbs. — perfect for the barbeque!

Salmon are slowly picking up with some big ones coming in. So far Trevor Fassett is still in the lead with a season-record 77 lb. halibut and Cecil Brown has the Chinook record at 31.5 lbs.

As the waters warm up the fish are more abundent, and Ling cod and halibut move in from the deep to shallower waters. In the last week we have seen our numbers of fish caught increase significantly.
