It's a secret. Only me and about 5k Mason's patrons know the answer.

Slow for us but we didn't put our big boy pants on and run to far offshore. Only about 12-15 miles... The guys that did from what I know did well. Halibut where brought in from all open area's.

I won't be back for a couple weeks hoping the shit show mellows out.

That bad? Yikes. I'm still having PTSD from the Chinook season crowds up there. I heard fishing was abnormally slow from my buddy. Had to work and work in crappy ocean conditions.

Sounds like Westport might be a better option for next weekend. Hmm...thanks for the report!

Westport was pretty slow. As of 415pm I had not had a single bite in an area that I usually have pretty consistent action. Maybe it will turn around this week.

Oh I'm not afraid of a blank day Jason, I've had a few. Did great at Area4 king fishing though. I was just trying to get a little Intel to decide between Westport or the Straits this coming week. Thanks n Good luck everyone!

Had to run to Area 3 but it was worth it. Limits for 4 on lingcod and halibut. Sekiu had no vacancies at resorts and the docks @ Masons. I asked when you need to show up for a dock space and the attendant told me to come early in the week.

Westport or the stairs? I’m really confused. It’s either area 3&4 or 1&2 if you’re looking for consistent halibut fishing this time of year. I’ll be in the 3&4 Thursday through Saturday by water and anchoring at night to avoid the literal shit show at Sekiu. Glad I got 200 gallons

My boys and I loaded the camper on the truck and hooked up the boat and took off on Tuesday to CQ to get a campsite and dock space. Olsons didn’t have any space for over 22’ boat. We did get a spot a Van Ripers. It was pretty busy by Wednesday night. We ran out to Swiftsure Thursday morning and only picked up one butt and couldn’t keep the true cod off. Then we went in to the garbage dump and picked up 2 more butts. Friday we went to garbage dump and picked up 2 more and limits of lings and sea bass. Saturday all the kids wanted to do was fish for sea bass. I tried for hali for an hour but current was ripping so kids got to fish their sea bass. We fished for salmon out in front of Sekiu a little bit and got 3 hatchery silvers but the jacks were thick and couldn’t keep them off. It was a fun week with my kids and camping. The halibut seemed to be really hitting the pipe jigs over bait at the garbage dump.
