About the fish on the West Coast

 

Some of the best Salmon and Halibut fishing in the waters of British Columbia is found off the west coast of Vancouver Island on a bank locally know as "the big bank". At any one given time during the season there are hundreds of thousands of salmon feasting on the abundance of bait fish that also make the bank their home. These salmon Chinook, Coho, Chum, and Pinks make the bank their home, growing to record tyee weights and gaining fighting strength before heading to the spawning streams that line the coast of Vancouver Island. There is also abundance of Halibut that live on the bank. The average weight is about 20 lb. but you can get lucky and get some that go well over a 100 lb. While you are catching some of these fish you have a good chance of seeing many of the Grey and Humpback whales that pass thru these waters on their migration northward.

 

The charter will generally head out at dawn for the hot spots. Weather permitting; this is usually to the big bank.  It takes about 90 minutes on average to get there. In June and part of July, Dave’s hot spots are very productive for Springs and Halibut. In July, other salmon species (Coho, Pink, and Chum) will start to show up and add to the excitement until early September.  In the latter part of August and early September, the charter may stop and fish some of the local rock piles for the trophy Tyee before heading off shore for the Coho and Halibut
