CH Report: First Tyee of the Season at The Clubhouse! – June 11, 2018

June 11, 2018 | 710 Views

A calm night here at Langara, light winds with overcast skies. Looks like a fine day shaping up for Monday, with Tuesday looking blustery with the return of the southeasterly.

Trip four has just concluded and again the fishing had its moments, along with some lulls. Top fish this trip was guided by Pete in boat 1, angling a 33 lb chinook for a couple anglers in the Wagner group. This fish was one of two bites they had in the morning, fishing out west. Below is a picture taken by Owen Drysdale, good job Owen.

The fish were scattered this trip, with chinook being reeled in on the west side as well as off Andrews point. Most fishing was a shallow affair, top 60 feet of water. The average chinook size was 10 to 18 lbs. Cory Wagner found a nice chinook in that size range pictured below. We never had a ton of luck but did release some mid teens, and lost a few more. Our boat was not hot, but we battled hard in blustery spring weather landing several decent chinook.

Day two of the trip brought summer finally. Smooth seas and actual sunshine. Pictured below is Jordie in boat 6 playing a high teener, and successfully reaching with those famous long arms, the perfect net job. No one is as fast with the net or proficient, Jordie regularly frustrates the sea lions with quick perfect scoops.

The infamous Jordie stretch and reach, job done!

Day three was a big hali day and all the boats grabbed a couple halibut at some point or another. Most of headed out west to the far spot and all were successful. Below is a picture of Cory Wagner and guest cranking in halibut on a very calm morning miles off Langara.

Another photo here of  oversized halibut we released in the 125 lb range. Lots of those around. The new max size is 115 cm. which is about a 42 lber.

A large hali release for Matt in the Wagner group!

On the puppy front, Lucy got out for her first day of guiding, thanks to my guests requesting her to come along and learn the ropes. She settled down nicely, and after the rods were set she had a long long nap waiting for a shot.we did grab two, largest at 16 lbs but it was slow out at Cohoe point.

Lucy learning the ropes, Ted Hinks mentoring!

All tuckered out on a beautiful day in June.

Finally as a reminder, remember to wear your life vest or jacket. Chelsea and Lucy do, and here is a picture of  Natalie our dock girl gearing up the dogs for safety. Always good to remember you’re on the water and things can happen fast, be prepared.

Life jackets are made to be worn, Natalie assisting the girls with the jackets.

So until we have some breaking fishy news, goodnight from Langara Island.
