Last time we left you, the bay was hot, danger was good, and Three Rocks was as of yet, undiscovered. The Update is in. Three Rocks is firing. When I signed off last time Dale Corman was just celebrating his 34lber on the first day. Well I have to say the remainder of the trip did not disappoint.
The group of gentlemen put together by Matt Quinlan spent a formative amount of time in pursuit of Mr. Corman’s early leader.
Dale ran off the dock so fast we never snapped a picture, but his Guide Jeff was ready to set in to give everybody at home a show.
First to challenge the pack leader was Ivan Bebek with this “ oh so close” 33lb beauty on the 3rd day with guide Carl.
Needless to say the bite was on minutes from our front door.
WCFC Blog superstar Carl Archibald guiding the Bob’s into another double.
Another nice pickup for Bob Gayton, against a stellar backdrop of Danger Bay.
Here we have Russell Star, a WCFC veteran having a nice afternoon fish with Bob Gayton.
Mr. Robert Gayton was kind enough to give a very educational talk about the Pacific Salmon Foundation. Their efforts help maintain the health of the Pacific Salmon and being in the business of fish, we are always keen to facilitate education on conservation and awareness. Check out there website at www.psf.ca and help us guarantee the survival of one of Canada’s greatest natural resources.
Low and behold, Ivan picked up another 33lber to try to steal the derby prize. Alas it was not to be. Dale Corman’s first afternoon fish held up til the finish, but I think all the guys had a blast trying to catch up.
Speaking of our Salmon resources, here we have the Forrey family returning to us again. Father Brent and sons Scott and Chris getting into some action at Three Rocks.
First Chinook is claimed by dad, but the family soon reconciles.
First time Salmon fisherman, Dalan Garner picks up the Tyee of the trip with nice 33lber. That’s a good start.
The fishing was on yesterday at Three Rocks and the average size has been steadily climbing with the fish between 23-25lbs all morning. Here we have Jeff Westeinde, Mike Buller and Jeff Clarke holding up the days bounty.
With the Green Jacket being passed around by the staff, it’s not wonder it found its way back into the shameful and honourless hands of Dewie. Revenge shall be mine!!
To summarize, the last 7 days have seen 6 plus Tyees, all the local fishing spots producing, abundant Halibut and Lingcod and comfortably fishable weather. All in all it is another great start to the season The OP. It seems again as I write this report, there is news of another 30+ on the dock. I’ll leave it until next week, but until then remember to keep your eyes as keen as an eagle for my next report.
Until then, signing off from Port Louis.
