Nanaimo Fishing Charters Report by Reel Time Fishing Charters
Over the past few weeks, we have had the opportunity to log in a number of trips in and around the Nanaimo area. The first few trips produced a few fish in the 26 to 27 inch range. These fish were caught in the 130-140 foot range out in front of Clark Rock/Pipers Lagoon as well as just north of Neck Point in a place known as the Brick Yard. Subsequent trips produced nothing we could put in the box so for our final trip of the week, we did a little searching. Word was out that a number of fish had been caught off Coffin Point in Ladysmith so we started there Wednesday morning. We marked some nice bait balls but didn’t touch any fish. We then tried Pollier Pass and managed a few smaller fish. The guest appearance there as a pod of Orcas that put on a nice display for our guest. From Pollier, we traveled North to Thrasher Rock where we had action almost immediately. Finally, a few larger fish. Last on our list of adventures that day was Entrance Island. Not much bait there and no bites.
Fishing in and around Nanaimo continues to remain slow which is typical for this time of year. However, with the herring run pretty much over, we can expect to see some better numbers of salmon showing up soon. As in years past, greater numbers of Chinook typically begin to appear about the second week of April. I can’t wait! Hope to see you out there! Keep safe, fish sustainably, and have fun. Let the 2018 season begin 🙂
