The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: July 25, 2009

July 25, 2009 | 607 Views

BEST OF SHOW ~ SATURDAY FISHING REPORT: If Chinook limits were an indication it was oh-fishally the best day of the season with everyone limiting out (who wanted to), sunny and calm afternoon, big fish, lots of fish and lots of variety. It was a spectacular day to be in the Queen Charlottes. 13 Coho retained biggest was 13lbs, somewhere around 35-40 Chinook retained and released with at least 3 definite Tyees, 5 Halis with the biggest at 153 lbs, lingcod, snapper and other fish. First off nobody came back to the lodge for lunch…that should tell you something. First back in the afternoon was actually me…I’ve had an old friend and engineer up to help out on a few mechanical issues and we slipped out at 4pm to do a little fishing before the rush of boats appeared at 5pm…we were out for 15 minutes before we heard the call of the first arrival but that was enough time to get Leonard a 25lber from the bay…

Well done Leonard and thanks for all your help. Next up was JP with Tanner and Alex…they had a little of EVERYTHING including a really fun day out on the water, here is the crew and catch with their limit of everything…

Well done gents. Then Pierre emerged with Ted and Dan and their haul of the day…

Again a full limit some beautiful fish and Ted earned a tyee pin for releasing a 35lber to boot…what did you expect he’s a Queens man (14 years and counting)…just like yours truly who was "Oil thighed" out in just 4 years. Then Stacey emerged with our new friends from Yellowknife; Hassan and Shariff, who had a wonderful day and snagged this beauty just before coming into the dock…

In Shariff’s words "Salmon fishing is way more intense than Lake trout fishing". I would have to agree Shariff. Picasso, Jodi and Kristian arrived and guess what, a full tote and according to Picasso "The best bite I’ve ever had at the Outpost". Lets see it Picasso…

Well done gang, that’s just incredible! next up, the Panzer division with Mike, father and brother…3 guesses the first 2 don’t count…that’s right BIG hali’s (and big Chinook as well). Dad (Steve Panz) broke the century mark with his 153 and insisted on lifting it without a rope…

WOW…what an awesome fish! One issue with lifting big halis, you get slimed…

I’d wash those clothes separatley Steve. But Steve wasn’t done yet, he also decided to retain the biggest Chinook of the day at 33lbs a gorgeous fish…

I guess we know where Mike gets his innate fishing abilities from. Not to be outdone was the youngest Panz, Myles who if he has a girlfriend back home, I think she should be worried because this kiss was the deepest most passionate we’ve ever seen on the Outpost dock…

and his new love only weights 95lbs, that’s a hard act to follow. Something’s going on by Matt’s boat…whats all the hub-bub about?

Well here’s a hint…

Boy it sucks to be a cut-plug out there…still can’t figure it out? Lets take a step back…

At the special request of the Chef, Matt and John from Oklahoma decided to retain this 4 ft Salmon shark after battling it for over 2 hours on a salmon rod (it hit a cut plug), there’s more to the story than that but…that’s another story. it was the first I’ve seen up close and a fearsome looking creature…

What an adventure! Supposedly these are very good to eat and have flesh similar to Swordfish, so its been filleted (nobody was quite sure how to do this) and will be prepared in the coming days…stay tuned for the results…

It looks like Turkey! What an epic day at the Outpost, we’re all exhausted and can’t wait till tomorrow…see you then. Kennyb-out!
