The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

The Clubhouse Report: June 26, 2011

June 26, 2011 | 583 Views

Fishing continues strong here at Langara as June is winding down, proving June to be a fantastic month to fish here at the Clubhouse. Although tyee sized fish are not present in large numbers , large numbers of 17 to 28 lbers are actively feeding in the area. Bait continues to pour into the area, herring and needlefish, whales are everywhere, bubble feeding dramatically amongst the fleet of boats. Coho in the 12 lb range are now being taken as well, you will be busy at all locations.

This am saw me fishing hali….chickens on our last morning out so ya, not a Chinook to tell you about, but flat calm seas, and a boat ride, something a little different. Chutter snuck out west and tricked a 31 lb tyee into biting his guests hooks. Kui had a tote full from somewhere, all species and was busy cleaning fish as his new guests trotted down the hill, busy boy today, no breaky!

The noon fishery saw Easterly winds gusting 30 knots, a four foot sea and whitecaps. This is always fun on the east side of Langara, sometimes a comedy of errors. Trying to hold your course while straining to keep the downrigger rods line out the prop while setting in the release clip, oh and a piece of kelp shows up, with a crazy boat bearing down on you sideways, yes good times. Patience and clear head helps, so does a big hippa! Could today at Gunia reward me with a hippa? After all the wind and chop, come on, we were due!

As things go, we did hook that hippa on a wind and tide super drift right in the hole at Gunia, Mike Harris on the rod. The monster thumped the rigger, no problem with the release clip on that one, and a huge shark like run for Doug rock. Mike corked his rod, huge pressure but it was working, and he muscled that hippa right to the boat after 15 minutes of chasing , bilge working overtime. Wow, that is a nice fish but dammit, only one hook in the beak. The monster started the dreaded head shake, out the water and argggg, the hook popped at the boat. i think we handled the fish well, but ya, sometimes not meant to be, Tyee won this battle. Keeps us fishing I think. We then ran north chasing a bad report, hmm, or we missed the jack kings and coho everyone had in they’re totes. Wow, you kidding me? back to Gunia, for the night bite, finally the right move. Grabbed a scrappy 25 with Mike on the rod, Russ quickly had a 11 coho on the deck, and we released long line a couple good fish. Wind is a great equalizer , tough on the guests when the boat is pitching and you have to balance yourself, while angling in a somewhat skilful way!

Todd went out to Lacy for a wind break and a 25, Korey had Jacks in his box. Chris Dunne had a heavy tote of jacks and nice coho from Andrews, wid drifting in the deep. Jordie was following him and connecting as well with fish into the twenties. Jordie has the advantage in the wind with those arms, easily pulling line out his kicker saving his prop seal everytime. They have to be six footers.

So tomorrow is almost here, wind will die, hope we have a great report for you in the pm. Fish and bait, hundreds of tons of huge hawg herring, blowing into the backeddies up the east side of Langara, lookout!

Goodnight from the Club,

Mike Tonnesen, Head Guide, The Clubhouse
