Jason, from Alberta, has been travelling all over the coast and Vancouver Island on his fishing vacation, exploring rivers with his flyrods. Today was a change of pace to go salmon fishing from a boat .
We fished with salmon plugs on the downrigger, so when the line releases from the clip, it is just you and the fish. A couple of lovely chinooks gave great fights.
These salmon are feeding on large schools of large herring and even hake, which are eating shrimp. We caught up one dogfish shark by the tail and while I was unhooking him some of those shrimp fell out of his mouth. Those are some of the important ingredients in the soup of Georgia Strait.
