200 pound Halibut

Winter Harbour on the north west coast of Vancouver Island proved to be a very successfull fishing trip.

Big seas and big fish combined to produce a few great episodes of Nice Fish and Nice Fish Jr. The first day out I was treated to a very large halibut. It was a gong show as the fish wrapped and tangled around a few other lines. The last 50 feet had to be handlined in because of knots and tangles. Hand lineing a big Halibut has to be done very carefully as one can loose a finger or suffer serious injury if not done properly. But the job was completed and a 195 halibut came into the boat along with a couple over 50.

The next day was 9 year old Dylans turn as he hosted his episode of Nice Fish Junior. Two Halibut were caught bigger than him in 3 meter seas. This kid is one tough dude.

The next day was a Coho show as these 6 to 12 pound fish provided constant action on light tackle. We then pursued some Chinook action. At this time of year offshore fishing for these big fish can be very exciting. These episodes will air in the 2010 schedule. I will post some shots later in my video Blog. If you are seriously interested in catching a lot of fish as well as big fish I would recommend that you check out Qualicum Rivers Lodge at Winter Harbour.

This was a great show...! I have fished Winter Harbour 3 or 4 times...caught many spring salmon and a few halibut ... usually anchored in the harbour over night...great scenery, wild life and the fishing is a thrill of a life time in this area.

The gong show was priceless...how many times have we all been in these ridiculous situations...but that is fishing.

Great show...Nice Fish...and some good humor!
