The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

CH Report: All Our Guides Are Hitting Chinook! – June 10, 2019

June 11, 2019 | 857 Views

Hello again from Langara Island and The Clubhouse. A blustery day in here, the steady rain was rather refreshing, and a decent quantity of chinook rolled through our area.

We are well into the season now, we just completed day two of our second trip. We had a tyee on the dock, a near tyee, and a fair number of low to mid twenties retained, as well as a number of mid teen chinook.

Jordie off channel Reef, with some visitors rolling through.

This trip is proving to be quite active out on the east side of Langara. All our guides are hitting chinook at a variety of depths, but 55 feet seems to be a constant. It’s money when you hit the bait balls, and although not heaps of bait around, when you find bait on your sounder you are generally hitting fish.

See this on your sounder and get ready for action.

Pete fishing with the SMS group found a tyee at 730 am out at  Cohoe point, first pass. That fish measured 40 inches long + 25 inches for a girth.

Bud and his group had an active day out at Cohoe, with several low to mid twenties retained. I am sure I counted a dozen chinook on our board over the 20 lb mark.

The coho are scarce, but Shawn Crawford found a 11.5 lb’er out on the east side, huge for this time period. Generally 6 lbs is a chunky coho in June.

I had a slower day on Sunday, but today, Monday my boat woke up somewhat. Below is a photo of Ryan Erickson, and Bravin Goldade with a pair of chinook retained out in the wet weather this afternoon. We had a wet wait for action, but mid afternoon, we hit the bait-ball in Dibrell Bay and had some action for sure. Ryan’s fish hit while I flipped the cut plug into the boat, right out my hand. I saw the spring swimming beside the boat just under the surface, as it followed Bravin’s fish, and lowered the plug right into the king’s mouth.

Ryan Erickson on a nice fish.

Brent and his guest Chris Spafford released a 32 lb’er I believe, out west at a secret location. Not many bites were reported, this was on Sunday afternoon. The wind screamed on Sunday, and the east side was very sloppy, so lots of guides headed west to explore and get relief from the 4 foot seas. Always nice to have an island to fish around, always flat water somewhere.

So things are moving along, fish are showing up, the size seems better in general this year for the early part of the season. I have to pick it up a bit myself, I am a bit slower out the gate, but that will sort itself out very soon.

The fleet of boats are looking good, everything is fine tuned and the lodge has had some great additions, most returning guests will love. Lots of hard work this spring is proving to be a huge hit around here. The outside area and decks, one covered, is an awesome upgrade!

Okay, time to hit the hay. We have some fishing to do and some sleep to catch up on. The fireplace looks pretty good too!

Goodnight from Langara, Mike Tonnesen, Head Guide, Screamer
