Fishing has been incredible the past two weeks. Lots of chinooks in the mid to high twenties and more tyee's (over 30lb's) than I have seen in these parts in a long time! The Campbell River hump has been on fire the last few days (July 10-13) The deeper water around the "hump" has been producing well for me. Find the bait and you will find the fish! I found a huge bait ball at 380 feet today and dropped my gear into it and had a fish on right away, so make sure you have lots of cable on your riggers!!! They are hitting most gear, but the cuttle fish hootchy in greens and blues seem to be the go to lures.
Bates beach slowed a bit but will be turning on with all the fish heading south from Campbell river I'm sure!
