The free entry “catch and release” Spring Salmon Challenge (for the biggest released Chinook) will be back again this year with a grand prize of $15,000.00 or return trip for four. Last year Michael Peck won with a 50.9 lb Chinook caught at Andrew’s point on June 28th. Join the action and check out the website for more information.

Here’s Clubhouse Guide Bud with Michael Peck and last year’s winning fish. Michael called this morning to book his prize of returning with 3 friends…

Speaking of salmon, one of our tackle suppliers Marty Spencer of Seapro distribution was in last week to deliver “the bible” of sport fishing lures and show off a new reel. He also offered his predictions on this year’s salmon return; for reason’s I couldn’t understand he felt it was going to be a good year for 5 year old fish which means LARGE fish. Marty, I’m holding you to that prediction. Here he is showing Todd the brand new Rapala North Coast mooching reel…

Todd’s thinking about a new reel for his self-guided guests. If you’re a NIL self guided guest check it out by following the link and let Todd know what you’re looking for in a reel…

It’s pretty fancy with a smooth drag and free spool option…

Todd might even give it a trial run here in Vancouver where the winter springs are running. Here he is with a mid sized fish in the heart of Vancouver,  Lions Gate Bridge in the background…

 

That’s a big fish for NIL standards…the equivalent fish at the Outpost would be something like this…

Just teasing…although the above was a 2008 Outpost fish.

I’ve got some fun updates from caretaker Pete who has been spending most of his free time playing Banjo and practicing new techniques. He sent me the following note:

Hey Ken,

Here is a short video of me playing a tune by a guy named Bill Monroe called Jerusalem Ridge. It is one of the classic bluegrass tunes.  Sounds not great, but you get the idea.

Caretaker Pete has also composed and recorded an original song while at the Outpost this winter, I thought it was amazing. Follow the link and click on the play button.

I’ve got something for you this week Pete. I was sent the following photo’s of a park ranger assigned to prevent poaching around the wildlife refuge area of Lanseria,
South Africa
. The way these animals interact with the ranger is stunning and it’s speculated that the lions seem to know he’s there to protect them. Pete, its something to aspire too in your relationship with Mr. Bear.

Anybody want a hug?

 

A good scratch

 
or a swim?

That’s all the fun we have for this week! See you next Monday.
