North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

North Island Lodge: June 12 Good Start!

June 22, 2011 | 623 Views

Week one in the wraps, and what fun it’s been. Fantastic fishing, good weather and great friends contributed to a solid North Island style kick off.

Lots of Vancouver fans in the crowd here’s the guys getting set to watch game 7. Well, at least the chicken wings were good! That’s all we’re going to say about that…..Back to the fishing.

Right out of the gate we were finding fish around the entire island. Day 2 of operation produced a total of 4 tyee, largest being Dennis Flinns 40lber.  Brady Fulcher , Andy Pooler, Doug Fulcher getting pins as well. Larry Sinray and Jim Warnock stepped up for the Bognar-Simmons crew adding a 30 and 31 to the board. Biggest numbers came the east side, but Lacy Island also surfaced as a favorite with guides this week. “ When it slows down on the east you head west and you can usually find a couple fish there as well”. It’s nice when you have all of Langara to work with.

Here’s Dennis with the first 40+ of 2011, and later, telling the story while playing bartender. I dig the shirt Dennis- “Life Is Good”!

On the Hali front, the guides managed to find a couple of very nice “turkeys” in the 40-85lb class but told me they had to put in the time out there. Here’s George Morine with his beauty.

Trip two saw the annual “Reeling for Ronnie” tournament. An exclusive this year: teams were set, monies counted, this group started strong.  In the first 2 days alone there was 48 Chinook caught-excluding all releases. A team event, the leaderboard changed daily with Kim Watt taking top Chinook with his 38lber. Other notables were Richard Lock’s 30, Mike Davis 36 and Robert Toolen with a 36.5lber.

Here’s tournament organizer, Richard Lock holding a Chinook with added tiger stripes compliments of a Sealion.

From what I was told, the tournament raised over $7000 for the Rob Brown Scholarship Fund this year.  Their best ever contribution… Well done to all involved. I’m sure Ronnie would be proud! Richard Lock will update details and pictures of the 2011 tournament on their website shortly:

We are off to a great start here.  From what I’ve heard on CH 9 this morning the fishing remains strong.
