July 13th-16th

This week we hosted Doug Jacobson once again as he brought his son and 3 son-in-laws, as well as a big father-son group of friends. These guys all had a great time fishing, but mostly eating, drinking and hot tubbing! ¬†These guys started the trip out right when Jack reeled in a monster 20lb chinook with his guide Jason on the first afternoon. The chum run is pretty strong right now, as quite a few were caught throughout the trip including Eric’s 17lber on the first day! These fish got the guys all riled up for an evening of beer chugs and hot tub karaoke. The next morning brought calm waters and sunny skies, but as soon as the burger boat headed out, the wind started to pick up on the backside. Chef Lyle managed to serve up a delicious lunch without losing a single burger bun overboard in the waves! Its a good thing he has his sea legs! The hungover guests though.. not so much. The wind storm brought in a wave of fish, and the boys on Jacob’s boat got into a good bite! Mike brought in a 15, Euby a 17 and David reeled in a huge 18 pounder which took the crown for the night! The third day of the trip was a bit dreary and it was threatening rain, so we had a delicious lunch on shore and headed back out for the afternoon bite. A few springs in the low 20’s were caught, as well as a few in the high teens. Doug, the main man himself, caught a huge 33lb halibut guided by captain Jason. The last night of the trip called for some more hot tubbing and beer chugs, but when the thought of being hungover on a sea plane hit, these guys behaved (sort of.. not really) and hit the hay to dream about the big fish they were going to catch the next day. These guys got out onto the water early on the last morning and were into a bite. Doug reeled in a monster 17lber with Jacob, and ¬†Buff pulled in a huge 24lb chinook with captain Pat! These guys finished their trip off right, and they all went home with some fish to share with their family and friends. It was great to see some familiar faces around here, and to meet some new friends. Thank you all for coming!
