Group 9 – Mixed Friends – July 11 to 14

Group 9 came and went this weekend and it was a small but very, very productive fishing weekend.  We had friends from both North and South Carolina and from California join us.  There were LOTS of Chinooks with the biggest of the trip being weighed in by Dave at 34 pounds.

The halibut fishing remains tremendously hot with most of the hali action in the “chicken” range, named for their “chicken of the sea” deliciousness.  The fishing and wonderful weather has everyone in high spirits and the owner has stated that its the best fishing he has seen in over 15 years.  The fishing is great, weather incredible, and the staff assembled this year is one of the best ever.  All of the above has the owner smiling saying the best is yet to come!  Enjoy the pictures!
