Default Ucluelet Chinook Salmon Fishing New Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCuTbBLVQvQ

Chinook Salmon Fishing Ucluelet British Columbia with Anchovies along the Lighthouse and Little Beach Shoreline. It was our last morning out fishing and we only had a few hours before check out. So we got out earlier than the previous days and stayed nice and close to the harbor. Only ten minutes from the dock we were at our starting point. Very few people were fishing this area since the weather had been so flat calm most people were heading to more distant locations leaving the lighthouse vacant. This was perfect for us and the Chinook were definitely on this morning. We saw a couple boats hook up right as we were getting our lines down. It wasn't long before we were also hooked up on a nice Chinook. Then we saw a boat hook up on a double header right beside us. A few minutes later after changing bait it was our turn for a double header. We finished the morning off with one more spring that came off with a little flip of his jaw beside the boat. Sorry for a few blurry sections. I think I have to teach my dad how to focus a camera next time we are out. What an excellent way to end a trip. A few hours later after packing up we went out with the girls and the bite had totally turned off. Not even a sniff in the same area. Oh well that is fishing and our coolers were full and packed up. I will have more videos from the trip coming. Just have to get around to editing. We had amazing weather, calm seas!!!

Get out there, the Chinook fishing this year is unreal!!!

Nice! The underwater camera footage is great. Interesting on the old bait / new bait exchange. It is great when you get that size that pops off the rigger all on their own

Congrats on the great morning of springs.

Yeah, always exciting to see the rod release and bend over. I burry them pretty deep too. 3/4 into clip because i hate false releases. Had a bunch of coho and pinks hitting down deep like 90 to 200 feet that weren't releasing it. At 200 feet couldnt even see the bite on the rod. We would just notice the downrigger line start to swing way back and we would know a fish was on. Guess we had too much arch in our line and a bit to much grabbing on the clip. But when you go down 200 you don't want it popping half way down.

Fishing at 200 would be very different.
Someday Brandon, we are going together!

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of fishing that deep, I think 120 feet is reasonable, after that takes too long to get the rigger up and down and reeling in the fish.
