The Clubhouse Report: August 6, 2012
August 7, 2012 | 1076 Views
Just returned from the dock and thought I better fire off a quick fishing report for the last few days. Just saw Steve Dow hanging a 39 lb specimen on the scale, fishing self guided down in Pillar bay. That was fish of the day as far as I know here at the Clubhouse, well done.
Fishing today was decent for our new guests. The early afternoon saw lots of coho and a fair number of chinook out at Cohoe Point, some dredging the bottom, others picking up springs along the shore in shallower. All boats has fish, most had a couple springs in the high teens, low twenties.
Our last trip was a productive one as well, one self guide had a 43 for fish of the trip, taken out at Cohoe Point. James Patrick snuck a 40 over the side, and released it, out at Cohoe as well, part of the Zivot group. I fished with Mark and Harrison Zivot, we had some decent fishing at Cohoe, and some crappier fishing in the pass hunting for monsters. We did have a ridiculous amount of laughs together, pretty scary when three people are on the the same wave length ten hours a day….surprised we held it together at all!
Jordie wanted me to mention his guests released a nice halibut for the Marsik group, he is thinking close to two hundred, well done guys.
Some big fish are passing through the area, not many but hearing of monsters, so must be happening. Here at Langara we carefully net the fish, then measure for a weight, taking the length and multiplying it by the width squared, and dividing by 800, not 750 as the lodges to the east of us favour. Yes our weights might not be as large, but this formula is very accurate and realistic, your released fish will be the actual size it would have been hanging on the scale, not a guestimate or as in golf, a handicapped score card.
Plenty of Coho around to ten lbs, lots of small halibut to the east, large halibut out west and chinook in decent numbers, things look good for this trip, stay tuned for more reports as this current trip continues,
