Vancouver Fishing Report, December 12/2012

We decided to take advantage of the amazing weather today and head out into Vancouver Harbour to scout for winter chinook salmon.  We left Granville Island around 930am and headed out to Howe Sound to drop a couple prawn traps.  The water was beautiful with just a little bit of an outflow wind hitting us in the face while we set the traps.  After we finished setting the traps we ran back into the middle of Vancouver Harbour and started trolling.  We were into quite a few fish right away, mainly on the small side.  We did release a nice fish close to legal size.  After feeling satisfied that there was some life in the middle of the harbour, we made our way over to the West Van shoreline.  We made a couple passes and didnt mark any bait or hit any fish.  We picked up the gear at 130pm and headed for the prawn traps.   Prawning was decent for a short set and we got some dandy prawns for dinner!  All in all it was a good day with great weather, prawns and few hook ups! Now is the time that winter chinook fishing picks up......last year we had a great day on December 15th, where we picked up 4 legal chinook in Vancouver Harbour! We are offering some great deals for Christmas!  Check out this link for more details.  http://www.bonchovy.com/blog/2012/11/christmas-gift-certificates-save-10-percent/ Give us a call if you want to head out on the water during the Christmas Holidays!  Nothing like fresh crabs, prawns and salmon in the middle of winter!!
