Trip started off with gale force winds Friday afternoon, and built to Storm force over night. Although we were tucked away here in Beale Cove, the winds howled overhead. Saturday saw the winds drop from storm, to gale force. This made fishing extremely challenging. There was a good bite on, and lots of fish were there for those who toughed it out. Sunday brought light to moderate north westerlies and sunny skies and plenty of fish…it was payback for the previous two days! The humpback whales continued their incredible display of graceful feeding, and the Killer whales visited the lodge.
The fish continue to favor herring, and the needlefish have shown up. Guides have switched over to spoons to target Chinook through the Coho. Again this trip, the tyees were elusive, however, eleven-year-old John Marsh picked up his fourth tyee, in as many trips continuing his streak! Lets see what you get next year, John.
