The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: July 29, 2009

July 29, 2009 | 490 Views

WEDNESDAY ADVENTURE/FISHING REPORT: I have to begin with the forecast of 30-40 knot NW winds which created 3+ meter seas and wicked conditions. One of the only options we had was to travel 20 miles south to the protected waters of Seal Inlet and air lift the clients home for safety. These 3 brave guides (Matt, Pierre & Mike) POUNDED home for almost 2 hours in horrendous seas…”The worst I’ve ever seen” according to Pierre Morel…

looking a little wet and battered by the journey into the heart of darkness these souls reemerged back at the lodge brighter than ever. Their guests and their catch were a display of their heroic efforts…

Pictured here is the triumphant crew from Sweden; Christian, Per, Mats, Ulf, Per, Michael & Victor. They worked hard over these few days to get into the fish they did, well fought gents. Exhausted and back at the Dock one of the guides (identity protected) dropped one of the Halis (50lbs+) off the dock and down it went. Matt (who was not the guide) stripped down to nothing in an attempt to catch the fish for the 2nd time today…

This photo captures perfectly a “guide tan” bleach white body with a scorched neck and head…a touch of colour to the hands. Armed with a gaff Matt dove into the frigid waters, others watched and waited…

Matt remerged but at over 20 ft down and pitch black it was a lost cause…but another huge sacrifice. The only member of team Sweden not to go on the EPIC fishing journey south was Michael. he instead hung back at the lodge and found himself on an adventure to glass ball beach with a large portion of the OP inside staff. It was a stunningly sunny and beautiful day despite the winds and the group had a glorious time exploring the far reaches of glass ball beach…

I felt like getting out for an hour or two on the water and so after the hike Michael and I decided to go fishing. The results were staggering; he had his limit in under 2 hours and a Tyee at 34lbs to boot, the biggest of the trip by 14 lbs. Here is the Swedish media mogul and his 34lb tyee with adoring fans fawning at the mere sight of such an accomplished seaman and angler…

To avoid suspicion from his wife back home we found it necessary to wash away any Canadian female scents… a common problem with someone of such high stature I’m sure

So in a nutshell: 15 Coho, 3 Chinook biggest 34lbs, 4 halis (that should have been 5) largest caught by Mats at 58 lbs and bright skies and big winds. It was an adventuresome day as is each day here at the Outpost, no one ever the same. Over and Out!
