Birdseye view of @murphysportfishing's Kyuquot Sound lodge. The work doesn't end when the fishing season ends. Dave, Marilyn and their crew spend countless hours on maintaining and upgrading their lodge every off season. Snow, rain, wind, wild animals, corrosion from the sea mean everything can deteriorate quickly without their constant TLC. We are always amazed to see the improvements done to this place in the middle of no where each year. πŸ‘ #kyuquot #kyuquotsound #murphysportfishing #salmonfishing #halibutfishing #halibut #salmon #chinooksalmon #kingsalmon #lingcod #lingcodfishing #fishinglodge #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #wefishhere #fishingwithrod #thewaytofish #fishingbc #bcfishing #wcvi #pnwwonderland #explorebc 🎣

What an epic last day to end my trip. We pillaged #swiftsurebank with a total of 6 kings kept, four legal but smaller than what we wanted kings released, 3 halibut, 2 rockfish and a nice ling. #portrenfrew #salmonfishing #fishing #wcvi

Been studying and getting ready for this summer. The newest element of fly fishing for me is the beaches and I absolutely love it. The scenery, wildlife, people, fish and every other element of it captivate me. See you on the beach! #estuaryflyfishing #flyfishing #vancouverisland #wcvi

We got to see the sun today!!! #groundfishsurvey #wcvi

The only way to weed through a school of smaller rockfish and get to the bigger predatory lingcod, is to use big lures. These 16oz @gibbsdelta Power Paddle swimbaits have performed beyond our expectations at Kyuquot Sound. πŸ‘Drop it down, paddle that tail, hold onto the rod! 🎣 #lingcod #lingcodfishing #rockfish #swimbait #wefishhere #gibbsdelta #fishingbc #bcfishing #kyuquot #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #westcoastbestcoast #wcvi #seafishing #tugisthedrug #anglerapproved #murphysportfishing #fishingwithrod #

It took awhile to get here today, but it was worth it! We are in Kyuquot Sound and tonight's inshore chinook salmon was pretty hot. πŸ˜„ @murphysportfishing got us into seven fish in three hours. I got a little green but still managed to hold this one up for the camera. 😜 | πŸ“Έ: @kittykanhoffen πŸ’₯ #kyuquot #kyuquotsound #chinooksalmon #salmon #salmonfishing #kingsalmon #fishingbc #bcfishing #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #explorebc #catchandkeep #wefishhere #nicefish #thewaytofish #shimanokeepsyoufishing #fishingwithrod #anglerapproved #westcoastbestcoast #wcvi #salmontrolling

⭐️🐟! And that's a wrap! Eight hours later we are back home (we need a bridge between this continent and that are rock!) πŸ˜‰ It was yet another pleasant visit to Vancouver Island. Some may say Tofino is too touristy, but I think it's got the best of everything for everyone when it comes to a family staycation. Our stay at @crystalcovebc was amazing. It's always extra relaxing when you can visit a place where they've thought about every little thing ahead of you. See you in four months from now, when we return to film an feature on inshore coho salmon. πŸ‘ By the way, whoever said hi to me on the ferry today, which happens a lot these days, my apology for not saying more than just hi for once. 😳 If I looked like I was ready to collapse, it's because I had one baby in the stroller, and the other four year old had run off screaming... πŸ˜† #tofino #exploretofino #explorevancouverisland #starfish #seastar #mycrystalcove #beachcombing #intertidal #wcvi #westcoastbestcoast #vancouverisland #wilderness #outdoors #explorebc #fishingwithrod #wefishhere #fishingbc 🎣

Fucus! These short brown algae can be found all over the intertidal rocks along the West Coast of British Columbia. They're a good indicator of the health of this ecosystem, as they provide protections for other more fragile green and red algae, as well as a variety of marine invertebrates and fish. Today is our last day at @crystalcovebc. This is by far the most family friendly resort we've visited in BC. The direct access to the beaches and large playground provided many hours of entertainment for the little ones and a bit of down time for the big ones. πŸ˜„ We shall be back! #fucus #brownalgae #algae #marinebiology #biodiversity #ecosystem #intertidal #mycrystalcove #britishcolumbia #explorevancouverisland #tofino #exploretofino #westcoastbestcoast #wcvi #beachcombing #nature #fishingwithrod #explorebc

The colours! 😊 To most, they are just seaweed, but did you know BC's coastline has dozens of different algae species? Three different types are commonly found - Green, red and brown. Some are in fact very edible, I remember harvesting these when I was little for supper. In this photo alone, there are at least four different species. If you haven't done it, visiting Tofino and other towns along the West Coast of Vancouver Island is highly recommended. You can spend hours on the rocks exploring this micro yet complex ecosystem. @crystalcovebc #mycrystalcove #marinebiology #ecosystem #algae #kelp #greenalgae #redalgae #brownalgae #intertidal #explorevancouverisland #tofino #wcvi #biodiversity #beachcombing #explorebc

Spatial competition is especially visible on the rocks in the intertidal zone. Submerged in saltwater, exposed to the sun, this environment is harsh and you'd want the best real estate to maximize survival. There's plenty to see and learn when you take a stroll down to the beach from @crystalcovebc. πŸ‘ #mycrystalcove #intertidal #mussels #algae #greenalgae #barnacles #ecosystem #fishingbc #bcfishing #marinebiology #fascinating #explorevancouverisland #wcvi #vancouverisland #westcoastbestcoast #getoutside #explorebc #fishingwithrod

Beautiful morning at the beach in Tofino even though the sky was blanketed by marine mist. The tide was at its lowest and visitors could be seen exploring the intertidal zone. The diversity of British Columbia's landscapes and their inhabitants is simply amazing. In a few days from now, I'll be going from this to the "Fishing Highway" in the Caribou region where you have enough lakes to fish in this lifetime. What more could you ask for? ❀️#spoiled #simplyamazing #biodiversity #westcoastbestcoast #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #wcvi #tofino #fishingbc #bcfishing #mycrystalcove #fishingwithrod #wefishhere #intertidal #lowtide #beachcombing #explorebc

Since we started doing saltwater episodes, @kittykanhoffen and I have always wondered who's going to get very seasick first, and whoever barfs first, the other person must film it. Sometimes we get so anxious about seasickness before we head out that we make ourselves sick. πŸ˜‚ To this day, neither of us have yet to puke, but I think we came pretty close at last year's trip to Kyuquot. πŸ˜† It was reasonably "calm" when we filmed "Inshore Lingcod Tactics" with @murphysportfishing compared to the swells from the day before, but condition was still pretty rough for filming. Just think several feet of vertical movement, while the boat spins slowly, like the spinning tea cup ride at the amusement park. Now imagine staring into the tiny viewfinder of the camera and focusing on either Dave and me for a few hours while this was going on. 😨 Yep, that's how our poor camerawoman felt that morning. She fought through to the end and this was the aftermath, but you should know that Kitty recovered quickly and went on to haul in a bunch of lingcod, halibut and salmon the rest of that day. πŸ‘ Her persistence is why she is involved in most of our productions. πŸ˜‰ I think she did a pretty awesome job considering what we were up against, check out the video yourself if you haven't already.

How many this time? In September 2016 the Conuma Hatchery tested a drone for counting fish. Thanks to Chris Erickson for the footage.

Stream surveyors from Nootka Sound met today in Gold River to discuss salmon escapement estimates from 2016. It was a pretty good year for Chum, Chinook and Coho stocks in most systems in Area 25.
