July 8th-12th

Happy Friday! What a week we’ve had. The Hy-Pro crew came to party with us one last time, and we’d like to wish the boss man Larry Hoeg a happy retirement! We also had an awesome crew of Seattle guys come to fish with us, Tyler, Bryan, Pieter and TJ. ¬†Also, Scott Anderson and his son Brett and son-in-law Ben came up after not being here for 4 years! We also had Rick and Lorne from the Vancouver area come join us, and we are so happy you enjoyed yourselves! It was great to see some familiar faces, and meet a few new guys! These guys were our first 5 day trip of the season, meaning they got to stay for an extra full day of fishing. To start out the first afternoon, the boys drank more beer than they caught fish, but Ben got bragging rights when his fish weighed in at 20lbs on the scale, and he didn’t let the rest of the crew forget it until the next day. Richard showed him up though with a 31lber with captain Benjamin, and Dave also got a 25lber with Benny. Rick and Lorne didn’t do too bad on Lil’ Jake’s boat either, coming in with their limits of Chinook with the biggest being 24 and 25 pounds! Smitty’s boat was on fire, and Brett, Ben, and Scott caught their limits too! Ben spent the morning chumming the waters but it didn’t bring him any luck unfortunately… The fishing stayed real hot the next couple of days, and most of these guys quickly caught their limits of salmon. The picnic was held at the islands and these guys enjoyed crab on the beach, along with 2 courses served hot from the BBQ! Conan’s boat was on fire on Picnic day, and Chris, Ron and Scott brought in 6 chinook weighing up to 21 pounds. A few coho came in throughout the trip, and Brett brought in a huge linger weighing in at 34 pounds! Larry caught twin 17 pounders, and on the last morning Brett caught a 19lber and Chris brought in a 20lber! We will sure miss you guys next year, and please keep in touch!¬†Click here to see photos from the trip!
