The Early Birds Get Rewarded With A Trophy Class Fish On The Final Morning!

Jake Spigno and his girlfriend, Emily Connor, hit the dock early and jumped in with Cpt. Nick again. After having an awesome morning catching chinook and coho with the Dancer 2 days before, they were especially excited to go with him again this morning!

They headed back to Sam’s Place, and although they were out quite a few minutes before the other boats, they were not rewarded early. The second boat off of the dock, with the Ribary’s and TayTay Logan, were into fish right off the bat, and quickly boated 2 good chinook on their way to a 3 chinook, one coho morning. Millar’s boat stopped just minutes from the dock and quickly had Jake’s dad, Mike, into his limit of chinook with a 25lber and a 17er too. Emily Knox had her Albertan crew fishing in Mitchell Bay as well, and they were getting into some good action. They had quite a few hits, including a doubleheader of big salmon. In the end they managed to land 2 nice chinook!

Just when the decision to get up early and head a little further seemed like a dead-end street, the whole herring hammered off and Jake was into an outstanding battle with a big fish! The call soon came over the radio that Jake may have landed a possible trophy class fish, the first of the early season. That started a flurry of action on the boat, and several other nice fish! Sure enough, when I hoisted the slab at the dock, Tiny Dancer’s suspicions were confirmed. Jake had boated the first Tyee of the year!! It was a great finish to a fun and rollercoaster like ride of a trip, with fishing success, and weather patterns jumping around like former guide, Sam Handwich Carlberg, when a big halibut was hooked on his boat! Miss that guy 🙂 And we’ll miss you guys too! Thanks so much for coming, and of course we hope that you all will return again some day soon!! Bye for now.
