July 2nd-5th

Happy Friday everyone! We’ve been busy here celebrating the July holidays! We celebrated the 4th of July for our American friends that joined us for rainy 4 days to do some fishing and relaxing. A big thanks to Jack & Cyndi Sparacio,Victor & Bonnie Reddick, Phil & Maggie Stalcup, Pete & Beth Chance, Jerry & Gigi Parisi, Jim & Max Williamson, Terrie Cox, Beverly Plost, and Anne Bugge for coming to spend your 4th of July weekend with us! This group hauled in a few hogs, including a 25lb chinook on the first full day caught by Victor, and then Bev caught her very first salmon on the first day also, which was a huge 20lb chum! Jerry came back to the dock with a nice 38lb halibut caught with captain Jason. It was a good day for these guys! On the 3rd day of the trip, another exciting fish story was told back at the dock. The ladies on Smitty’s boat got their lines tangled with a fish on, and couldn’t reel with a rats nest of fishing line. Captain Smitty came to their rescue and hand-bombed the fish up to the boat, and then pulled it in with his bare hands. It was safe to say he was the hero of the day for the ladies on his boat, as they all came back to the dock singing “Smitty’s girls.” This fish ended up to be a beauty 12 lb chinook for Debbie. A bunch of the ladies enjoyed a sleep in and went out later on the princess cruise with Jacob. These girls proved you don’t need an early start to catch the big ones, after pulling in the biggest of the day only 15 minutes after setting the lines at about 8:30am! Gigi was crowned queen that night at dinner for her 17lber, the first salmon she has ever caught! You guys were such a fun group, and thank you Phil for keeping us very entertained with your jokes, and roasting Jack, the gourmet oven seller. Thanks for checking in 🙂
