The Clubhouse Report June 12 ~ “Whales and bait…that is the recipe for big fishing!”

*Another beautiful day here, and a nice picture of a 33 lb tyee. I might add a pretty enthusiastic angler as well, David Nadeau, with his largest Salmon, and biggie of the trip. We grabbed this one at good old Cohoe Point. As you can see, sunny out , calm seas, and slowly the fish are getting bigger.

A typical Montreal, Toronto battle, with the Leafs coming through in the end as per usual. Dave was one happy Hab though, he is still singing that infamous Montreal serenade as the losing team leaves the ice.

Brother John Nadeau came through with a second tyee at 31 lbs, this one in the pm today tight in off Gunia. Quite a snap was on for three hours, and Dave Jewett grabbed a 31 for the forth tyee of the trip, fishing with Ian. There were teen sized fish blowing through the pass in numbers all day today.

The bait has finally arrived and with it plenty of Humpbacks as well. Whales and bait, that is the recipe for big fishing. While the majority of fish are fourteen lbs, we sifted through them, and a number of 20 to 27 lbers were snuck into the fish pit. All totes have fish in them, and all guests are releasing plenty of spring Salmon.

No distinct hotspot is evident, with every point and kelp bed producing. The herring are hanging at Mac and Lacy, and massive boiling balls are blowing through the pass. Get on a ball and you will hammer the heck out of them. I managed to jig a bucket today, and these are crazy big herring, some 24 cm long. Many are the size of small Pinks. No wonder these Chinook are actively growing and feeding in a frenzy.

Tomorrow looks like a gale Northwest, good times. This will make things interesting, the west side possibly too rough to explore. That said, plenty of water inside Andrews to hide in and drag Kings out of the kelp. Saturday looks awesome, South winds, and that is when I suspect a massive run of Chinook will be in here.

Until next time, see you soon and we are now on them!
