Victoria Report

Beautiful weather and productive winter Spring fishing greeted us on the waters surrounding Victoria this week. We fished primarily Border and Constance banks with the majority of the action at depths from 90'- 140' with lines fishing tight to the floor. Chinook seemed directional with the most of the bites coming while moving with tide. Action intensified around both morning and afternoon slacks with springs ranging from 2-8lbs. The most consistent producers were coho killers and 2.5 kingfisher spoons in shades of green, while purple haze and white glow needlefish hoochies worked through the morning tides. Green glow and the staple purple onion were the go to flasher colours. Right now you can expect anywhere from 4-10 Chinook per fishing trip.

Halibut fishing was fairly good on the weekend but slower for us the past couple days. We expect things will pick up as the halibut fishing has pleasantly surprised many of us with consistent catches coming for most boats. Large herring, salmon bellies and mudraker jigs seem to do the trick.
