A Great Finish To Our 2013 Season!

Hello again to all who read these musings on fishing and other exciting Sund’s Lodge happenings by me, Millartime.

We have had a fantastic group of people in from Minnesota, BC, and Washington over the past week. Also great was the weather again this week. The marine mammals were out in full force everywhere, too. I was netting a herring ball, and we had just drifted 20ft. away from the ball, when a humpback came up beside us and ate the rest of the herring in several lunges. It was awesome to witness so close! Humpbacks were breaching and tail slapping everywhere this week as well, including a multiple breach ‘a distance’ from Big Jim’s boat in Mitchell Bay. Orcas were circling Lizard Point while we were on the beach there for our Bistro, and porpoise, sea lions, and seals were everywhere during the week!

Mixed Family Group Ends With Another Tyee!!

Millar here again with a quick report from our last morning of the trip. The crew’s on many of the boats got into some nice chinook this morning. The top prize of the trip went to Jim Ribary who was fishing with Keith off of PNP, when he hooked into a behemoth, weighing in at 35 on our scale!! Jim had been going on and on about catching a Tyee this morning, and he proved that he wasn’t full of beans when he produced the big boy of the trip. Way to go Jim!!

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.
