April 29th, 2017

Fishing has picked up this last week.  Its Spring time finally so we can expect to see some larger mature fish start to show up. The Hump fishery just south of Bowen island generally picks up during the first week of April and can produce excellent numbers of fish at times. Productive depths off the hump are usually between 80 and 130 feet... Anchovies dyed in green Pro-Cure Brine n Bite fished in Full metal jackets small herrig, Purple Haze and Green Splatter Hoochies and spoons are all good bets. Clear Jelly crush and UV jelly glo Flashers have been hot tickets!!
