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!
