August Update Part 2
“Time to get your Stan On!”
Once again the time has come! The great and powerful Stan Clan & Co has returned to Port Louis to continue their storied tradition of Red Deer dinner jackets, fish shaped hats, and raucous chants reminiscent of a tin cup raked against the bars. Ok, it’s not quite Attica, but these fisher folk are here, and they mean business.
This August we were excited to welcome back our very own VP of Sales & Client Services, Chris Dale. Along with his father John, they put together a full group to book out the OP and enjoy 4 full days of great weather and excellent fishing. I myself ended up on the water for this trip and I picked a great week for it.
Day 1 had the boats searching out the fish locally.
Geoff set the pace with a 29 lb’er on the first afternoon, and it would be understating it to say, the group was eager to pry the tittle from his hands.
In the end, on a sneak play Bob Casper revealed a 33 lb catch and release on the 3rd day. They kept it under wraps until dinner, and revealed the news to a surprised and somewhat glum Geoff, that he had been unseated.
The last 2 trips of the year brought back Dan Lorette and Prince Rupert Grain.
The last trip brought us Rui Feng and his group back for another season final. Rui and the group enjoyed good fishing with variable weather conditions. The group had very pleasant experience, including a shopping bonanza at the end that was the biggest of my season.
The group handed out the derby prize on the last night, but maybe a little prematurely. Low and behold on the last morning, in the last hour of the season, David Kong pulled out this beautiful 32 lb tyee to finish off the season nicely.
That is a wrap for another summer of fun at The Outpost in Port Louis.
This season started slow, but as it picked up, we saw some of the biggest fish we have had in years and the numbers were excellent.
The staff and I had a great time welcoming new guests to share this wild place and were excited to welcome back friends from years past.
As we get ready to hand the place back over to the caretakers, we reflect on another summer spent in one of the most special places in the world. These wild places are our greatest resources going into the future. We look forward to sharing them with new and returning guests alike. Maybe someday we will be able to share the experience with you.
Until then, I am signing off from Port Louis.
