North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

NIL Report: Business as usual on Langara Island! ~ June 15, 2015

June 15, 2015 | 2040 Views

Fantastic weather greeted first time WCFC North Island Lodge guests, the Absolute group. Standard fare with the June pattern so far, partly cloudy skies, light winds from the NW and abundant Chinook Salmon had the group high fiving shortly after lines in. A healthy mix of high teen to mid twenty springs were the order of the day as all the known spots around Langara were producing fish.

Business matters delayed group leaders Geoff Haydon and Errol Olsen and they arrived at the lodge a day later than the others. Not having a warm up day on the rods apparently did not matter. Errol in sync with veteran guide DJ picked up a beautiful 40 lb Chinook . Nice touch, come in and a put a throw down like that on the table for his team!
Joe Horne followed suit with another big catch hitting the dock scale with a 47lb Halibut.

Day three and the charts (and our fish board) lit up. Chinook were hitting our spoons and plugs as soon as they the rods were set up.

Thomas Kenny had the experience of his life when he connected with a nice Chinook only to have an Orca take it beside the boat. Another appeared and now two Orcas just feet away are staring at Thomas as if expecting another Chinook gift or else. As Thomas explains it… he’s fine now.

On Sunday evening Chef Liam Paul served up another incredible dinner. This time seared duck breast with wild cherry glaze and BC spot prawns. After dessert Chef brought the house down‎ with his guitar and a huge repertoire of classics – the Absolute group were rockin!!

Closing the trip off Monday morning was trooper Lauren Kennewell who after winning it all in a (very)late night Texas Holdem showdown, still had game to bring!
Lauren hit the dock at 6:00AM and was back an hour and a bit later later with a chrome 20 pounder just to put an exclamation mark on her week.

‎The group was fantastic from start to finish and the entire crew was sad to see them off.

Earlier in the week we also had the fun group from Mott Electric come back to visit North Island Lodge. They are a fun bunch who came up for some team building to tear up Langara Island with a little goofing around and lots of laughs.

    Just returned from a trip to the North Island Lodge the week of the 22 to 26th and had lots of fish and loads of fun. Todd has once again put together a staff who all perform at the highest level. Having had over a 100 employees myself I know how difficult it is to get the standard of excellence with everyone. What a team. Thank you and God be willing will see you next year. Bert Paul
