The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

The Clubhouse – July 23

July 24, 2011 | 651 Views

A misty damp night here at Langara, south-easterly winds, a nice night around the fireplace for sure. Fishing has again picked up, chinook are biting, and Dixon Entrance is paved with Coho.

So many fish in the bait ball out at Lacy. I lowered my herring jig to the depths, free spooling with my Shimano Calcutta, and whoa, I hooked a screamer. My line shot to the surface and on the 6 lb test I fluked a monster, I saw yellow dots and a black head! I passed the rod off to Peter my guest and he did a great job winching that slug to the boat, but she popsicled and I hesitated with the net. I blew it, just then a second ten lb coho nailed my jig, screamed out line and snapped off my hawg! What a bummer! Almost had our fish of the trip on a herring jig…a fly! So many fish they were hitting flies! I should have done the old reach around, Conman style and trapped the fish against the hull with my net. This one hurt all afternoon.

Fishing was at times spectacular…a mix of springs and coho. So many coho. A lot of the big boys went to spoons for relief. Mike Williams fishing with Dunne took a 34 lber, Kui released a 40 for Daryl. from Victoria. Ed Hume had a 32. We had plenty of springs high teens and low twenties. Our boat also had a 14 lb coho, a NORTHERN! Are they not all northern up here? Coho after silver, thousand upon thousand, and no sea lions today, what the sam heck?

The bait is hanging on the west side, and we have had all our success out that way. This bait ball is several hundred tons, sounded out 15o feet top to bottom. These are jumbos, 23 centimetre jobs, the size of small pinks! These fish are holding on this bait, and we are too when possible. Coho point seems barren, with micro springs in the low teens hanging out here. The odd good fish at Gunia, but this is the a west side story!

Hali is slow, weather the issue. Kory tried today, had a large bucket mouth for his troubles. Anchor would not hold. A few teens hit the dock, no mediums!  Who is halibut fishing , really , with this chinook fishery going off again!

Must say goodnight, time to get warm and get rest, these are exciting times here at Langara, Mike Tonnesen, Head guide, Clubhouse
