Ling and rockfish jigging is good at Thrasher Rock. Large green jigs fished in 65 to 100 feet of water is the best method.
Prawning is still slow due to the recently closed commercial fishery.

Silver Blue Charters offers excellent year round salmon fishing charters available on beautiful Gabriola Island aboard a 25.5 foot SeaRay Amberjack.
