Fishing report from the Outpost: MILL POND! In the words of Matt Brown (with almost 10 years on the water at the Outpost) "I’ve never seen it like this, there was NO swell". The ocean was asleep all day today and that allowed for easy boating, relaxed fishing a fun day on the water. 9 Coho, 25 springs caught or released 4 halis and a variety of other bottom dwellers were caught today. There were 2 tyees, 33 and 31 and 3 halis over 100 lbs. The first tyee looked like it could belong to Guide JP’s boat
and at the dock it was a confirmed 30 lbs for Eric who finally had his first Tyee after 3 years of salmon fishing, congratulations Eric!
Seen here with son Ty and father Poul, they had a productive morning with guide JP
and then decided to try the halibut fishing in the afternoon and from the looks of it they were doing well
by the time they got back to the dock there was a 49 and a 110 lying in the bottom of the boat, there is nowhere else on earth where you can have a day like that! Poul claimed the 110…
while Ty brought his 49 up on a salmon rod
Not to be out done were the tag team of Jim and Clay who were hamming it up with Clays 131 lber…a nice match with his 70lber from yesterday…this one was still hungry as it tried to consume one of Jims yellow eye…
Jim managed to take the biggest salmon of the trip thus far with a hot 33lb Chinook from Hippa where they got into roughly 20 fish and had one of the best days you could hope for
But hold on what’s this getting dragged down the dock…not another one????
Yes sir its Mike and a 165 lb fish, all taken from the same spot that keeps on producing giants! Here are Denny and Mike with guide Robert Gordy (school teacher in real like) who subsequently filmed himself with the fish to show his students how large these creatures can be.
There was more to tell but there’s also another day tomorrow so until then and we’re hoping this weather holds, its a real joy. I’ll end with this last shot and a quote from Matt Brown who was out trying to catch a chicken hali for Jim and Vincent and came back with nothing but colour "I don’t know how to catch small halis", to which Jim replied "but he sure knows how to catch yellow eye"
