Mixed Friends Trip

It’s Millartime here, again, with another trip report. We had a bunch of couples in this weekend, most of whom had been here to the lodge before. The Waizenegger and Filo boys came in from the SanFran area as well.

Day one showed some promise early when the crew spread out around Blackfish Sound, and several boats hit fish early. The first to hit were Nick’s and Taylor’s at the Wall. Don Berntsen on Taytay’s boat hit into a low 20’s chinook that they wrestled for half an hour with a seal for! Unfortunately, the seal finally won. Cyndi Blau had a similar fish that spat the hook 2 ft. from Dancer’s waiting net. Across from them, at Cracroft, I fished with Team Waizenegger. Uwe showed the new guys how to get ‘er dun, when he landed a nice 15lb chinook that we wacked off of Rollie’s tree, my favourite spot there. Nick Waizenegger boated a good sized coho minutes later to round out our action. Top Dawg Sund had the Santi family, and he put them into a large coho and 2 pinks. The crews in Mitchell Bay on Emily’s and John’s boat caught some nice coho as well. It was a nice start to the trip.

5 day mixed group was another success.

Hey it’s Millartime here with another report. Our 5 day trip for July 22nd through 26th consisted of mainly experienced guests, but with a few new ones joining in on the fun. Bob Champion and his wife, Leslie Graham, returned again, as did Jane and Paul Johnston. Also returning were Steve Douglas and Marcia Petersen, with Bob and Ed Mathews, and Cary Caulfield. Bruce Martin, who joined us in the Inlet Experience 10 years ago, came to try out the lodge this time, and it was pretty cool to have him back after all those years! New guests, Bobby and Beverly Clark, joined us from mid Texas. The Planeta family, Bill, Sandy, and Patrick, came all the way from Connecticut to fish and enjoy the area with us. Both groups were a hoot to hang out with.
