North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

North Island Lodge Update July 18th ~ “Hard work pays off: Hali’s for all and a few nice hogs!”

July 18, 2014 | 2478 Views

Welcoming the Termo crew we had to work a little for the Chinook, though good numbers of Coho, Halibut and stellar weather still made for a great experience for all of our guests. Pictured below is Cecil Bair who found this 37lb Chinook off Cohoe Pt.

It’s Turkey time! Clam seas and sunny skies make for great conditions for Hali fishing.

Here’s a list of the nice Hali’s we’ve been catching over the last few days:

Jim Mcintosh 59

Cecil Bair 57

Damian Stehly 37

Robert Fale 95 release

Mike Krolczyk 85 release & 42

Kyle Rossler 66

Bimmer Udsen 51

Niels Udsen 85 release, 48

Tony Ahern 55

Tripp Ahern 42

That is one good looking list if I do say so myself!

Regulations state we cannot keep larger female Halibut over the 133cm mark to ensure healthy repopulation and it seems to be working. The Hali fishing has been great all summer with lots of perfect take home Hali’s being brought in each trip.

This week things ramped up a bit and the Ginger jam was working. Guides Jake and new comer Pat Davies aka “Cat Gravy” releasing a couple of “Jim Dandy’s”. Damn John how do we get one of those hats!

Wow, look at those conditions. Justin Smith pulls in another beast.

Robert Fale with guide Al sneak in a Buzzer beater 44 on the final morning – always an exciting way to end the trip!

World class fishing is what brings our guests back year after year to our pristine corner of the country, but hiking through the rainforest or exploring the beautiful beaches in the area for souvenirs that have washed up on our shores is also popular. This past week a few of the staff took a couple hours to explore one of the many remote beaches in the area. They enjoyed the rare time they got to spend away from the lodge and stumbled upon some very sought after glass balls aka GB’s.

Celsey found a trophy japanese glass ball. Measurements were 45 by 14.5 inches. The Biggest I have every seen. A couple others have been drifting in as we continue to add to our collection.

A great week here as NW winds and sunny skies prevail. Good night from North Island.
