The fishing is good on Gabriola.

My husband and a few of his friends took the boat out and hit slack tide last night (it was around 6). It was the perfect afternoon to be fishing, the sun was shining and there was little wind to be found. They hooked up an army truck hootchy to their line and reeled in a 15 & 22lb salmon just off the Old Grande Hotel (Dragons Lane, Gabriola) they kept their gear set between 50 to 100 feet and were about 2 miles off shore. Look for surface bait, a good indication that fish will be there. If you're looking to go fishing check you tide book, usually the best fishing is 1 hour before to an hour after slack tide.
