Hello to all you Sund’s Lodge blog followers! The second trip of the season has come and gone, and we were sad to say goodbye to a lovely bunch of old and new friends from Seattle, LA and San Diego. Its been a rainy few days here at Sund’s Lodge, but the rain has only made the fishing turn on. Salmon fishing started out a little slow, but the burger boat brought our boats the burger boat halibut bite on the first full day of this 3 day trip. Our good friend John brought in a 30lb halibut, and a few halibut in the high teens were also brought back to the dock. Our Picnic was held in the beautiful Pearce Islands, and the liquid sunshine held off until the very end. Our guests enjoyed cooking up and tasting fresh dungeness crab on what seemed like our very own private island. Once the guests got their lines back in the water after lunch, our guest Phil got into a huge 19b lingcod on Ben’s boat! By the last day of the trip, we had crowned our guest Cliff as the “codfather”, as his hooks seemed to attract an awful lot of yellowtail rockfish, quillbacks, and pacific cod. He’ll be eating some yummy fish tacos for the rest of the summer! The last morning of fishing for this group of guests was hot! Captain Jacob’s boat came into the dock with a boatload of chinook, and Jason came in with a beautiful 26lb spring. What a way to end the trip! Thank you to all our guests for joining us for a few days of relaxation and fun. Our staff wishes you all safe travels home, and also safe travels to all of our future guests that are on their way here!
