Tofino Fishing Report - June 2019

Tofino Fishing Report - June 2019

In June, the fishing season really takes off on the west coast. Long sunny days make the perfect combos for exceptional fishing days.

For the last few weeks, bottom fishing has been consistent and productive. Tons of action catching giant skate and, of course, halibut !! After a few long fights with these gorgeous flat fish, we respectfully keep only one halibut for dinner and came back to the dock...

Tofino Fishing Report - May 2019

With the new regulation on Chinook Salmon closure, it's easy to get confused. In Tofino, we are allowed to fish offshore within 1 NM of the surf line until July 14th. See link for details: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/tidal-maree/a-s24-eng.html

The area 124 is from Estevan point to Florencia Bay, and don't forget that the inshore is open for retention with 2 Salmon over 45 cm per day.

Halibut fishing is great now, with no need to go very far, usually going maximum 3 NM offshore has been enough. Fresh bait is important for these bottom feeders, salmon or octopus are the best. When it's added to a Grubb it's a deadly combination!
