2015 Season

Thats a wrap! Another season is in the books here at Sund’s Lodge. We’ve had a great fish run, beautiful weather and awesome guests all summer long. The entire staff of Sund’s Lodge would like to thank all of our guests who spent their time, and hard earned dollars, to come hang out with us. This summer we had 305 guests, who brought a total of 1901 fish into our dock. This 2015 season has been unforgettable, and we are looking forward to the seasons to come! Thank you.

What a way to wrap up the season! This weekend we hosted a group of great friends for 5 days of fishing and fun. The weather wasn’t the best, but that didn’t put a damper on the whale shows or the fishing! The Khun family joined us for their third visit to the lodge, and Chuck even made it into the big fish chair on the first night of the trip after he reeled in a beauty 24lb chinook! Zach and Alan Higbee joined us again and brought along Zach’s wife Kathryn and sister Allison. Zach made it into the big fish chair on the second night after he caught a 24.5lber! Brad and Marty Wilson joined us for the 5th time along with their grandkids Harper and Camden! Camden reeled in a nice 14lber on the 3rd day putting him in the big fish chair and King Cam managed to stay in the chair on the 4th day when he caught a 16lber with captain Keith! We hope you all had a fun time hanging out with the crew of Sund’s Lodge (alpacas too) and we hope it was a relaxing visit for all of you! Thank you for fishin’ with us 🙂

This week was very relaxing and quiet here at the lodge. We had Goose and Lori McCarthy from Ontario join us on their honeymoon! These two got married on Saturday, flew across Canada on Sunday and arrived here on Monday for what they described as their trip of a lifetime! From Utah we hosted Jim, Vicki, and son Dustin Matsumori. These 5 guests spent 3 relaxing days in the hottubs, down by the fire, and on the water with Jason and Travis. Although it was a quiet group, the fishing certainly was not! These guys boated some beauty springs and some really nice coho. Jim sat in the big fish chair the first night after he brought in a 20lb spring to kick off the trip! Vicki loaded up with a 19lber one day and a 26lber the next! Lori had an awesome last day reelin’ in a beauty 20.5lber and a 16lber with Jason. The girls did awesome while the boys caught some really nice chinook around the 20lb range and lots of coho! Thank you all for coming – we had a great time hosting you, see you all again 🙂

Whirlpool & Coast

A wild crew of 19 joined us this weekend – Welcome back Whirlpool and Coast Appliances! This group of Canadians killed the fish and the beers the entire 4 days they were here. The first afternoon these guys boated a ton of huge coho and really nice springs all in the 15lb-26lb range. The boss man, Greg Pass, caught a big honkin’ springer on Keith’s boat that weighed in at 26.5lbs back at the dock. This hog put him in the big fish chair, which he has been dreaming of ever since his first trip to Sund’s Lodge many moons ago. The second day started out VERY hungover.. (cough cough Chris C.) and the chinook fishing was pretty slow throughout the day but the coho kept on biting. Mike V. managed to reel in a beauty 24lb chinook on captain Jason’s boat which put him in the king’s chair! After a much calmer second night the guys were raring to go in the morning and some nice chinook and coho were boated by beach bistro time. The afternoon fish brought in some nice halibut and even a lingcod was caught by Neil on Fish Be Gone John’s boat! The big fish of the day was a 20lber caught by Mike V. again, making it our first double king chair all season! After a rowdy last night in conference center the guys woke up early and went hog farming. Neil brought in a 19lber, but unfortunately his partner Ray lost a nice one to a sea lion on Jacob’s boat. They still brought in the head to the dock and it weighed a whopping 3lbs! This whole group went home with a lots of fish, beer bellies and smiling faces. Thank you all for coming to party with us, ya’ll were so much fun! We hope to see you all next year 🙂 Click heading to see photos from this trip!

CommScope & Anixer

Another great trip has come and gone here at Sund’s. We had a group of 12 guests from Anixer and CommScope come to work and play. Kim Rheppard, Bob Eck, Eddie Edwardes, Bill Galvin, Peter Karlsson, Anne Marie Kenneally, Steve Leatherwood, Randy Mortensen, Jeff Hofstetter, Rick Arsenault, Kevin St. Cyr and Stephen Kowal all joined us from Texas, Chicago, the Carolinas, Toronto and West Virginia. These guys and gals had a lengthly meeting on their first day here, but they managed to unplug for the next couple days after that and they caught a ton of fish! Once this group got goin’ we couldn’t stop them. Some of them limited out after only 2 days of fishing! The chinook and coho are still coming through steady and the biggest fish of the trip was a 27lber caught by Stephen! The weather was absolutely beautiful and we were lucky to fish under sunny clear skies with just a little bit of wind towards the end of the trip. Thank you all for coming, see you upsteam. 🙂

Another fantastic trip for the books here at Sund’s Lodge! The Keane and Carnes families came from all over the states to meet up and fish (and drink) together for the weekend. Graham Travis also came up to do some kayak fishing from Seattle. The weather was great for these guys and the fishing was even better. We enjoyed all 4 days with no wind, no rain and tight lines. The biggest salmon of the trip was caught by Dan and weighed in at 21lbs! While Dan wrestled this hog to the boat, his wife Amy also hooked up into her first fish of the trip! It was an exciting afternoon of double headers on captain Jake’s boat. The fun didn’t stop there though! After having no luck and sore arms kayaking the first day, he ended up hooking into the trip’s biggest hali with captain Travis on the second day. His arm definitely needed a break after that 41lbs hali! He was glad he didn’t catch that one in his kayak. Thank you all for coming, see you again next year!

This week we had a wonderful group of new and old guests come to stay with us here at Sund’s. Todd Banks, the president of Kenmore air, came along with his coworkers Eric, John and Andy. They also brought TLG Aerospace engineers Andrew, Scott, Steve and Robert. Tim Kelly also joined us along with his son Simon and his friends Tim and Rich. Faye Clerget also came to do some fishing with us and it was her second time here. Nick Ernst, the designer of our website, came along with his twin brother Evan. These guys all had a great time reelin’ in fish in beautiful sunny weather with no wind. The salmon fishing was once again great and this group went home limited out. The biggest chinook of the trip was caught by Todd Banks and it was a beautiful 27lber! The coho are still coming through strong and they seem to be getting bigger and bigger. Halibut fishing has slowed down a bit but the halibut these guys caught were all perfect eating size. We had an awesome week with you guys – it was so much fun hosting you! Thank you all for coming! See you all again soon 🙂 Click heading to see photos from the trip!

Brent Peterson Fishing Classic

We kicked off the weekend right! Heather Sund’s uncle, Brent Peterson, brought a group of his family and friends up to Sund’s Lodge to do a little fishin’. We also had Scott Sund and his family join us to make it a full crowd here. This crew all felt like one big family and there seemed to be a smile on everyones faces at all times.  The salmon fishing has been continuously steady with the chinook all being in the 15-25lb range – but Bryson broke the streak and pulled in a 30.5lb chinooker as the biggest salmon of the trip! Cassie hauled in a beauty 20.5lb halibut and proudly wore home our official guide hat as her prize. Not only did this group  take home a ton of fish, but they also took home about 3/4 of our gift shop!  But don’t worry- we’ve been busy restocking for our guests to come. Thank you all for coming to spend your weekend with us! See you upstream.

Cabela’s Club Signature Outdoor Adventure

What an exciting week here at Sund’s Lodge! Cabela’s brought in a group of 22 guests from across the states for a fishing adventure. None of them had ever been to Sund’s Lodge before and very few had ever been on the BC coast, so it was a very exciting and new experience for everyone! Although they were newbies to the lodge, they definitely knew what they were doing when it came to fishing. These guys absolutely killed it on the first afternoon –  some really nice chinook came into the dock, with the largest being 23lbs caught by Dan Kehoe, and a ton of huge coho. The second day of the trip was a little rainy in the morning, but the burger boat brought the sun and the burger boat bite. Again, a ton of coho and quite a few mid size chinook came into the dock at the end of the day. On beach bistro day, the third day of the trip, the sun came out and fishing heated up as some really nice +20lb halibut were caught and the biggest fish of the trip, a 23.5lb chinook was caught by David Haas. It was an awesome day for fishing and a little party on the beach. On the last morning the spring fishing really got hot and many of our guests caught their limits and filled their fish boxes to the brims with +15lb chinook. We were sad to see this great group of friends leave our dock on Friday afternoon, but we look forward to hosting them in the future. Thank you all for coming to Sund’s Lodge!

This past week we had a group of our old friends come and stay with us. April and Jim Haberman brought their kids Ben and Rachel for some family fishing time. Deb and Joe Bernard joined us again along with Claudia Glover, and Benny & Hal from Tyson Foods. Larry and Jean Armbruster also joined us this weekend and went catching instead of fishing. This trip’s biggest salmon weighed in at 31.5lbs and it was caught by Claudia on captain Travis’s boat. Nice one Claudia! The weather here was pretty warm and sunny with a nice cool breeze on the water. The fishing was once again great this weekend – it hasn’t seemed to slow down since June!
