The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

The Clubhouse Report June 1 ~ “Trip One”

June 1, 2014 | 1707 Views

Trip one,

We are open, trip one has come to a close and things are again starting off well at The Clubhouse here on Langara Island. The first 52 lb chinook was taken across from the lodge by our neighbors today, Saturday, so yes there are a few around.

Our first trip has concluded with two tyee on the board, the largest out of boat 6, a 36 lb specimen. Runner up was a 31 lb tyee. The 36 was landed out west, the 31 in the Andrews area. Most of the fish are teenagers at this point, with the over twenties being the nicer fish retained.

Surprising the bait is not around as of yet in any amounts, no humpback whale shows as of yet. The orcas cruised in yesterday, and it was a very large pod or combo of pods with some 60 plus whales frolicking under my skiff. Now that is a sight, and yes time for a move when that happens.

Weather has been nice, and I see we are in a dry pattern for the next bit, with a building northwest wind in the coming week. Overall it has been dry this spring and relatively storm free.

We have three new 27 foot outrage whalers now on the dock joining our fleet, our outside 300 feet of dock is a chain of 27s now, and yup, look fantastic. We now have Matt Conman stepping up as have  Shaun and Ryan Forester to run these new rigs. They are a nice platform, and powered by 350 yamaha outboards.

Lots of new guides this year, as we have 10 new faces at the dock ready to start guiding Langara, and the boys are pretty excited. As usual fun Bud Stafford is back joining me guiding, as as crowd favourites Korey Fletcher, Shaun and Ryan Forester, Hans, Chris, Tyler, and good old bucket boy, Steve Tenant. Steve has returned to us after a hiatus of some 5 years, lets hope he has not forgotten how to catch tyees , and put on a show.

Its changeover night so off to the scuttlebutt lounge to say hi to my guests. We are pretty excited to see you all sooner than later, and with a bunch of new faces up here there is heaps of enthusiasm, so stay tuned, let’s get it started!
