Figured it was time to get a new Nanaimo area thread going seeing as winter is pretty well over. I'll be dusting off the boat and fishing sat/sun this weekend, maybe even in the sun 8-) . I'm sure more than a few of you heard about the 39lb spring caught at thrasher a few days ago. Anyone been out in the past few days to try their luck?

A 40 and a couple 30's? Did you hear this from good sources or see any pics? 1 fish in the 30's is almost unheard of for this time of year let alone a couple. :o

I haven't heard of any salmon that size but I did hear from a reliable source about halibut that size very recently caught at Gabriola. The springs I have caught and heard about have been 8's 12's myself a 15, and a 17.

Hey guys, havnt been out since almost 2 weeks ago, went out back to back days for one teenager that fell off beside the boat. The weather looks nice for the next couple days so i figure i'll try to get out. I'm thinkin of maybe runnin down to thrasher from nanaimo on fri or sat. I've only ever prawned at thrasher so dont know a whole lot about the salmon situation.

Anyone have any tips for fishing thrasher? I know the thrasher area pretty well just need to know whereabouts the typical trolling tacks are, depths, etc. Oh yah i'm in a 25' kingfisher "ReelEscape" ch 6 or 8 give me a shout if ur out.

thanks,
Brent

Looks like the wind is going to die down for Friday. I am keen to get out if anyone wants to ride along.
One other thing about tides... when fishing JDF for the most part you want to hit it on a flood. Here is different though is it not. The tide is running down towards the 'big' rivers on an ebb. Would that be better than a flood?? Can't figger that one out.
Usually we are on 88a (no one talks anyway).

I dont think tide direction in relation to the rivers has much effect but it might. I like an hour before/after low tides locally.

Cheers All,

My best fishing is on the slack 2 hours before to 2 hours after. If I have to fish otherwise I prefer a flooding tide to a falling. However, I have caught fish on every part of the tide and fishing is fishing. :D

The pattern I saw last year, low slack out far in the straight was good. High slack around thrasher rock was good for me too.
