Seven tyees today here at the Clubhouse, the boys are on them! The
weather is over the top, hotter than hot, seas flatter than flat, a
guides dream today. Spring salmon stacked in our favourite haunts, tyees
where they are supposed to be, this was an amazing day in here.
The chinooks are favouring Graham Island now, shallow water fishing, 30
to 50 feet along the shoals and reefs, near the kelp and rock piles,
classic tyee fishing. we had boats in Bruin Bay, Boulder and the Jalun
and they all reported good fishing. Our new 27 had two tyees for the St.
Denis group, now three on the trip. Marc Schoenrank had a 32, Todd
Stanberry grabbed a 30 in boat 11 off the slide. Trey Whichard angled a
30.5, while Jeffery Balliet took a 30.5.
I fished again with Mike Throne and his son John. We spent our ten hours
in Boulder and Gunia, grabbing two fish at 30, and a dozen 17 to 20 lbs.
We found them at 40 feet, fishing cutplugs, mooching and trolling at a
slow clip working the shallows. The fish seemed to come on the bite at 9
am to about 12 pm, and come on in the early afternoon to about 430. A
Heaps of herring in there, more the a dozen schools 2 to 5 tons, working
the 50 foot contour, super exciting for sure, today felt very fishy. The
weather was crazy hot, must have been 30 c, kill me, to hot for the
Hellys, never mind the fleece. Pat even striped down to his kakis, but
did retain his wool socks, I have no idea how he wore those. Me thinks
bat wings were the order of the day!
We all figure tomorrow is going to be on, with the herring, our
superstar guests in here, some 20 year vets, that all fish big fish, the
likes of Gary Hayden, Peter Dickson, Larry Fleming, Bruce ‘moon’ keltie,
we should rack and stack tomorrow. Off to bed, heat stroke me thinks,
full report soon, please check back, Mike Tonnesen, Head Guide, Screamer
