These Chinook (King) salmon were all caught on May 24th on South Bank, approximately 5 miles offshore from Ucluelet BC. Purple haze hoochies and coyote spoons were employed at both 100 feet and dragging the cannonball in the mud (160 feet).
The largest fish is approaching 20 pounds, with the smallest around 10 pounds. Granted, they aren’t 40 pound Tyees, but it is great to get out in May and enjoy the a few great days on the water. We always run lighter gear in the spring which makes these fish that much more fun to catch!
The fishing will just get better during June and should be awesome in July, August and September. What are you waiting for? Get out here!
