Big Fish Showing In The Mix - Kyuquot

July 2 2013

The number of fish is still at an all time high

Kyuquot Sound Spring Island Tyee Marilyn MurphyAfter our first week the catches still remain at an all time high.  Just a few short miles offshore and near-shore the salmon fishing has been phenomenal.

Our evening fishing has been near shore Spring, Lookout and Thornton Islands with lots of Wild Coho action.  The new limits this year have opened up some great fishing.  We don't normally see Coho in this high abundance here this early. This has been a total bonus.

Most years the early fishing is all way offshore at the fifty fathom edge but this year we have been having great success right along the surf line and just offshore.  There has been a tyee almost every group trip (3 days).

The fish in the picture above was landed in the late morning bite (10:30am) just off of Lookout Island.

We haven't had to fish bait since the fish have been thick.  Fishing bait would slow down the productivity.  Blue/Green Hootchies or Green/Silver #4 spoons behind a green fully rotating flasher has been the reliable ticket.  Shorten up leaders for more Coho action and choose brighter colours.
