As we approach September, the good times and great fishing continues at King Pacific.
We have been fishing the entire Milbanke Sound area from Idol Point, out to McGinnes Island and Cheney Point. Over the past week we have seen a lot of action along the west side of Athlone Island, Cheney 1 & 2. Very nice Chinook from mid teens to mid 20’s are common and just yesterday we had four Tyee over 30 pounds. Last trip, one of the largest Chinook of the season was taken and weighing in at over 40lbs. Cohos are regularly coming in over 10lbs now with many in the low teens.
All gear types are working well. Green Spoons, White Hootchie, Anchovies and Cut Plug herring are the go to baits. Generally a little deeper from 60-80ft has produced good results.
Bottom fishing has been fantastic as our fleet has had a good chance to get around to all of the favourite spots. Excellent Lingcod and Halibut have been common catches.
The weather and sea conditions have been fantastic. Albeit, a little obscured due to the smoke from forest fires inland British Columbia. Its a constant reminder of the challenges people are facing with these fires and we hope all who are affected are safe. We are expecting some stronger Northwest Winds this coming weekend.
Thanks to all who have visited with us so far this season. We appreciate your continued support and we are very much looking forward to hosting guests until the 10th of September.
