Great fishing continues in Nanaimo: Report from Reel Time Fishing Charters, September 13, 2018.
After two sensational months of fishing in Ucluelet, Reel Time Fishing Charters has returned to Nanaimo to finish our year. Our charters in Nanaimo and Ucluelet produced some of the best fishing I have seen in over a decade. And it hasn’t stopped! Our first three trips back in Nanaimo this past week produced some nice hook-ups out in front of Neck Point, Pipers Lagoon, and Entrance Island. It wasn’t until today however (Thursday, September 13) that we finally got dialed in as to where the fish where really holding and feeding, a place many local anglers call “The Brickyard”. Fishing down at about 140ft with a “Kitchen Sink” skinny G on one side and a “Gold Nugget” coho killer on the other, we managed hook into 10 Chinook during two 4 hour charters. Many of these fish where 3rd year feeders meaning they where anywhere between 7 to 10lbs. The surprise however was that there where still a few 4th year spawners in the mix, 1 that took us for a good ride until he finally came undone. With the amount of bait we were marking in the area, I highly suspect these fish will move on any time soon. If you are looking to take advantage of some wonderful sunrises, amazing sights and some pretty scrappy fish before we pull the boat out at the end of the month, please check our schedule for remaining openings. Otherwise, to all of you who have followed or fished with us, thanks…, hopefully we’ll see or hear from you in 2019.
