Had a good weekend scoping out spots around the sounds for summer.
Went to Hori Bay for a wee fish.. not much happening there but the water was real nice and would like to get there for a spear mission when it warms up a bit. A couple were just getting in the water when we left. There was also a filleted rig carcass on the beach there.
Decided to go see how far we could drive so made it all the way out to Bulwer.. Had a wee fish by the salmon farm. Plague of bluecod, real nice condition but unfortunately within the no take zone.. also seen a big ray and had carpet sharks in cm’s of water. We’d catch a spotty then place a rock on top of it by the waters edge. The buggers would almost beach themselves trying to get the spotty. Also got some dogs.
Then we went back over the hill to rocky Creek (what the locals called it?) caught a feed of blue cod and went home.
Ater packing all the spear fishing gear we didnt end up getting in.. Still a bit cold for no wetsuit but a good weekend.
