Well summer solstice is upon us and I hear the gathering in full swing on a drizzly night here at the club. A quick check sees most of our guides in they’re bunks, boy have times changed eh! The fellow lodges are all visiting, so maybe the Kory’s, Chutters, Kuis will have an advantage in the morning! I expect to see a run on coffee and water in the morning.
Fishing remains good although the tyee classed fish are slow, we have three with a day to go on this trip. Fish are in all locations, with the east side of Langara, the guides favorite. I fished the east side north today with Mike and John Throne, hitting fish out the gate, retaining a 26 and a 25 , releasing a half dozen 19 to 23 lbs. About noon the flood tide started and things dried up. We headed over to Boulder and grabbed a handful of teeners, Saw Chutter busy as well in the kelp. Kui worked the reef, for a cabazon and two risers….Kauri claims he lost a monster hmmm, too bad, I hate losing monsters at the reef! Todd Sharfe made three tacks at Lacy in big swells for a 26 and a 22 lber, Kory battled Coho point and beat a 25 out of there for Mike Pattison.
I snuck down to Shag for a look yesterday, where were all the boats? Hmm, talked to Butch, Peregrin was just pulling in, opening day! There was action, but the same run of fish teeners to 18 lbs. Kory and Jordie I guess did not believe my report and checked out Green today, and the results were chickens, lings and smaller kings, hmmm, so back to Langara for the afternoon.
The orcas have been around for three days, good times, but not the ideal situation as we all know. The sea lions have thinned out, but picked on Jason Wilson yesterday, losing three in a row, to big eyed, blubbery rock dogs, Wilson was frustrated but hey, he got to play a 1500 lb lion on 25 lb test, rod corked, with the line stretch, I find it to be a really good time haha. I notice only a handful on the rocks, so maybe they are slowly moving on.
Well morning comes early, time for some sleep, the sun is coming up soon, what the heck it is 1230 am? Sounds like a tyee was landed, hearing some hooting and screaming, standby for a full report in the pm tomorrow night haha, cheers and summer is here!
