North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

A picture is worth a thousand words …

June 15, 2012 | 826 Views

.. well maybe not a thousand but Brent Gallacher sure as sam heck making my job easier with some fantastic shots of this 47 lb Chinook.   Brent explains how he landed this beauty …

“It was late in the morning yesterday fishin in tight at Lacey Island nice slow troll close in to the rock with the down rigger set at 56 feet.  This fish put up a great fight .. took us about a half hour to put ‘er in the net.”

Great job Brent.  47lbs is now the number to beat at the WCFC!

Taking girth and length measurements in preparation of a release

While every attempt was made to release this fish it was not meant to be.  With the hooks buried deep in the gut the chance of survival was greatly limited.

June has shaped up to be a fantastic month for the North Island team and we are looking forward to our next group!  Stay tuned for more reports from North Island Lodge.

from 54°14′03″N 133°01′13″W,

    Great catch. Unfortunately not to be released is a shame.
    Biggest I’ve seen in the last 4 years. Too bad you couldn’t film it for Youtube. It would go viral with all the guys who think they’ve caught big ones.
    Keep up the good work!

      Salmon all die after spawning anyway – so all you really prevented is the fish from experiencing that reproductive event.
      Don’t worry yourself over a salmon that is killed. Enjoy the fish fillets and salmon steaks! 🙂 And go catch another one.
      You really want to have a trill, catch a salmon on a fly. An event you will never forget. The its just you and the fish battling out and your ability to release is greatly enhanced. You can even try barbless hooks – new designs hold a fish just as well as hooks with barbs and you never have to worry about how to remove a barbless hook from yourself, a friend or “heavens forbid” a guide.
