CH Report: “A 45 second troll and we were doubled up!” ~ June 7, 2015

June 8, 2015 | 1150 Views

As our third trip is now underway, what a start we had this am. Hard to believe you can be in Vancouver at 6am, on a Sunday morning, and have lines in at Cohoe point by 11 am. That has is how today started out.

We were greeted by a strong Southwest wind, it was an adventure pulling off the dock with the wind and tide. A short 10 minute ride and lines in at Andrews point. A 45 second troll and we were doubled up.

For the next six and a half hours Chinook after Chinook hammered our baits. All boats, guided and the selfies as well. This was a large body of spring Salmon, stretching from Explorer Bay to Little Cohoe Point. As each of our skiffs rolled in all guests were on fish instantaneously. Heavy hauling, plug after plug sent down 40 to 70 feet, hammered by springs 16 to at the large end 37 lbs. I personally had the 19 lb curse going if there is such a thing, and my guests better fish were in the low twenties.

Steve Tennants skiff was hot with a 37 wacked, Korey’s guests settled with a 31 and Evan tripped on a 34 with his happy customers. The sheer volume of 15 to 20’s was staggering, so much so I switched to plugs, and wow, they were hot as well. So many fish around, Sea lions were no issue at all, grabbing a couple from Bud and myself but hey, lions have to eat as well.

The 602 plug was a hottie, as was the 500. No secret, send it down and troll 2.5 or so mph and soon you had a Chinook thumping on the rigger arm. Speed up a little and thump, another double on plugs, no big deal. Fast fishing with no leaders to tie, just clip that tag line in the rigger clip and wheel it down, heaps of fun.

So three tyee today, see what the am brings. Northwesterly building which might change things, but what a start to trip three. More very soon, time to rest up for more insane fishing action.

Goodnight from Langara, Mike Tonnesen, Head Guide, Screamer
