The summer has hit and we are in full swing here in Port Louis.
After a slower start than usual, the fishing has picked up incredibly and we are enjoying beautiful sunny days with North West winds and bait being blown in regularly.
We have had some epic days on the water lately. The crew made it down to Hippa recently, and it did not disappoint. Dropping in Selvesson has produced very good fish with a smattering of nice tyees in the mix.
Recently we welcomed back the boys from BOEING, and the weather and fishing lined up to make for an amazing weekend experience.
After an epic 25 minute battle, we boated this specimen, got our picture and managed to get perfect release, not a scale missing. That’s what we live for. I’m so glad that our guests have embraced the need for conservation and are so keen to let these fish go back have a chance at breeding.
Back at the lodge, Brad and Mike were busy dolling out the rewards for biggest and smallest.
Rich and John Receiving their Yeti Tundra 65 coolers for largest Salmon and halibut. Does anyone else notice something constant in these photos? I’m not sure Jon Stephens has won anything, but he sure seems happy.
Returning we had Nick Canter and Daughter Jessica, Rod Follwell and his son Matt, as well WCFC owner Rick Grange, His wife Jody and her son Ian.
It didn’t take long for the bar to be raised.
What an amazing experience to catch this almost within sight of the lodge.
Up next we have the Delta group headed by Mr Tony Hi and Bruce Langereis.
The group started up with a bit of wind, but have been enjoying the best weather of the season with cloudless skies and light winds.
Right off the bat we had Steve Merritt catch and release a beauty 33.5lb tyee of Selvesson reef
That’s it for the update for now. Check back in as we detail the amazing weather and good fortunes here in Port Louis
