Hello and welcome to the 2008 season at North Island lodge!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff here for really putting in an extraordinary effort getting us in position and geared up for the season. The lodge looks great; Walter’s food has been excellent, and the boats are performing well with their new Yamaha engines, control units and Sounder/GPS combos.
On the fishing front, a little preseason test fishery to get the blood pumping resulted in our sous chef Randy Milito and guide Jason Wilson releasing a 46lb Chinook. Several guides and staff rushed over to have a peek at the beast but no one had a camera onboard. Oh well! I think that memory is firmly etched in Randy’s mind as he already recited the story several times…Sorry Randy you cannot enter your fish in the Spring Salmon Challenge but a very nice fish indeed.
