Tips Up fished Sangster with a group of two and landed a 21 lb Spring a 8lb wild coho and two undersize springs. We also bottom fished and caught two large red snappers and a nice ling cod. In the afternoon I took my wife out to fish Epsom and we landed two Springs near 12lbs.
Tips up started fishing at Epsom close to the low tide (East side) with a few shakers and then out of character headed to Sangster on the slack. The strait was as flat as ever. As soon as I got to Sangster the action began. Landed three coho all hatchery with the biggest at 9lbs. The bait fish was thick. I arrived just after the low slack but with the huge abundance of bait fish I am sure the springs were active leading up to the low.
Tips Up has been very busy over the last month and a half and I apologize for the lack of updates to the site. Have almost brought in fish every trip including Chinook , Coho, Big Lings, Red snapper, Rock Cod and Crab. Some of the highlights were a limit out of Springs (fish between 8 to 24 lbs) at Epsom in less than 2 hours including a couple lost – A 31 lb ling and a 20 lb spring on a trip to Sangster. A 27 lb ling that my customers graciously released at Sangster - Da
