July 15th-18th

Holy s**t Neptune, that was a trip like we ain’t never seen before!” *In a Boston accent* It’s been a few years since these guys have been up to fish with us, but they took over the lodge for this past weekend and they all felt like old friends. Neptune brought up 18 of their crew, and we fished hard!! On the first afternoon, I am not even sure if they went fishing but they definitely got into a few Kokanee’s while on the boats! Bob hooked a beauty 14lber, and a 5lb coho, while Dana got a nice sized coho both on Smitty’s boat! Don also caught a big coho with Capt. Jacob! These guys had unbelievable weather during their stay with us, and there didn’t seem to be a breath of wind at any point. With the water like glass on the first morning, these guys set out feeling a little foggy after a night of playing pool ect. ect. in conference centre. Burger boat day was absolutely beautiful, and Tony got a nice yellow eye, and the coho are sure coming through strong. On Smitty’s boat, Craig got a 16lber and Mike pulled in a 24 pounder. Another yellow eye came in on Ben’s boat by Mitch along with an 18, and Edries got a 14! Another picnic was enjoyed on Lizard Point, which was spectacular. Luckily Georgia found Jeff’s forgotten soother on the beach before they left so he could make it through the rest of the day! Conan’s boat once again came in with a boat full of salmon. Steve, Dana and Louis all had chinook ranging from 13-23 pounds. Jay and Jef tied for the big fish with 26 pounders, but Jay admitted the crew on his boat may have tampered with the fish to make it heavier.. but really, how much water can a fish hold? These guys had a great time reminiscing and going through the old photo books from the early 2000’s when Neptune used to bring crew’s up and wreak havoc at the lodge in their matching coats as they burnt their competitors signs. We need to re-name the boat in the yard the S.S. Neptune!! The last morning was sure hot, and Dave caught a 19, and Tony hauled in a beauty 23 with Jacob right infront of town! Don caught a nice 15lber and Dana caught a 10 pounder. We had a ton of fun with you guys, and we will miss you.Click here to see photos from this trip!
