Wow what a trip, spent the last 5 days fishing in Torquart Bay/Barkley sound. This time of year is great for salmon in this area. The first day was slow could not seem to find any fish in the sound so I decided to head outside about 7 miles out in the open sea. Well it didnt take to long before we hooked into a spring about 15#, nice fight. Then Donny caught this monster of a fish 38# (maybe more, stupid scale) Next day was to rough for my 17' boat so we went jigging for cod in the sound. Sunday morning came and it was still to rough to go outside of the sound so tried our luck again in the sound with not much luck, just a couple of small ones. Later that evening the weather was great so we headed out to the outside again and right away we were catching fish, A few small ones that we let go and two 23#ers, real fighters, 20 min each to bring in. Monday we went to Ucluelet for some gas and beer and saw some cool stuff, then went fishing again Caught another 23# fish. So all in all it was a good trip.
