The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

The Clubhouse Report: June 10, 2011

June 11, 2011 | 607 Views

Our first fifty was released today, 51 lbs, as June continues to be extremely productive fishing. The weather is sunny, calm winds, flat seas, and Chinook salmon everywhere!

Len Brownlie grabbed a 51 lb Chinook, and promptly released it with Kory’s help, out at a local monster pit, the REEF.  Kory set it up with a shallow downrigger in tight on the kelp, right on the change, 1pm. First rod in his guest had the monster, and what a great day for the tyee, as she was released, everyone was WINNING ! Len then rubbed it in a bit soon hooking and releasing a 32 lber, now that is an afternoon. Of course a crowd bombed in there to join the lucky boat, soon a parking lot, but not much came by after those two tyee.

I found myself out at Lacy, mirror calm, hot and sunny, yes, possible in the Charlottes. We were slow til Kory’s school came by for a visit, an hour later. Three boats on scene, boat 11…or Todd was on em first, and after a bit of a lull, we were hammering them as well. Charlie Page was in my boat and soon was hooking some nice Chinook, retaining a 32 lber and a mid twenties. Wade Dawe was on them as well, taking a 26 lber to add to his retained pair of 28’s. We got the job done and were in for the second period of the Canucks win, what a great day.

Fun Bud joined us on the tack and got off the snide, angling a 29.75, yes we gave his guest a tyee for that one. At one point I saw a triple header on a boat, and all other boats had good fish, including Connelly’s craft and Todd, yes fish were there for sure.

The boys did some halibut fishing too, Connelly, Ryan , Chutters, yes Chutters all went out for a look, all limiting on halibut, as the tide was a small one. Perfect for anchoring, not always that way. Tides larger than seven feet make this difficult out there and a challenge but today was perfect. Largest Halibut was out of Ryan’s boat, a 120 lber, others were 40 to 60 lbs.

This trip is huge, fishing is on fire! This is June and a treat to be here fishing. No by catch, every hit is a head shaking spring salmon. This weather is as good as I have seen in many years, and this early season fishing  is on par with anything we see all summer. The beauty is that the boats are spread out, making the experience that much better. Whales in the mix, everyone catching, what else can we say. Hope we will be seeing you all up here this summer, and the guides are keen to get you on fish and showing you this area. Thanks for checking in, a big day tomorrow is on the table for us , standby for the report!
