The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

The Clubhouse Report: June 12, 2011

June 13, 2011 | 821 Views

Weather and fishing continues to cooperate for us here fishing Langara Island. Our third trip has just finished off and everyone seems pleased with the experience here at the Clubhouse.

I had a long-time patron Tim Sorensen out yesterday and we teamed up for a great fish on the west side. Tim has fishing here a number of years but never had the luck to personally reel in a tyee, so this was his day finally, Winning! Tim has the casual approach, head out at the crack of 8:30 am, come in for a nice lunch and head out at 2pm. we set up at 2:30, lines in, not much happening. Back and fourth, soon the music was on and a cool beverage was in order. Next was story time, and right in the middle of telling a classic screamer story, Tim’s mooching rod off the stern thumped and buckled, a heavy fish of some sort. Acting strange, not sure if this is a shark or a lion. The fish moved right into the island before heading straight to the bottom, then slowly swimming out. Good news, not surfacing for air so not a mammal. Soon we had a glance, not bad, rolling and twisting a few feet under the surface.

Tim was on this fish for a half hour, slightly lost interest and began telling his own classic stories. I was a tad nervous, but hey, Tim can fish so relax a bit Screamer. Finally a weight shows and hmm, that looks like a good one. First pass by the net a 41 lber, nice first tyee. We gently placed her in a release tote filled with water and worked her back into good health. She was tired but swam off happily towards deep water, what a sight, way to go Tim!

Although slow, we soon had a 29 to the boat for Tim’s partner, a fish that wiped out George Gaffne’s lines fishing in a Langara boat…what a mess but thanks to them cutting lines we had the fish, not a huge fight as three weights were tangled on the fish. We soon grabbed a trolled up halibut of 45 lbs, so a fun afternoon for sure.

The boys on the grounds, all had nice hali, Bud released a 200 plus after photos, and lived to tell about it. Leave the hook in Bud, we need you to guide tomorrow. Tough trying to save your hook worth a buck when it is in the lip of a monster.

We have some drizzle this pm but the seas are calm. Looks like a great trip coming up. Chinook have slowed a bit but with the size we are all anticipating a great afternoon. Look out for the next report, hope to have a story about another great release.
