The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: June 2, 2010

June 2, 2010 | 1034 Views

OUTPOST UPDATE: Another busy day comes to an end at the Outpost and another first for the season…we’ve got a contribution from Whitney “the Wizz” Magliocchi, our new fast talkin, jive walkin’ dockhand, whom we stole from the Clubhouse…here she is drivin’ and stylin’ her way into the Outpost last Saturday…

 

 Her contribution is an Ode to Milan who left us today after training his replacements (Brent & Whitney). Whitney’s piece is entitled “Bad Poetry”…

There once was a dockhand named Milan,
Ken Beatty is his biggest fan,
He showed up for 5 days, and taught us his ways,
Then jumped on a floatplane and ran.
On day 1 Milan showed us around,
and explained how the Outpost goes down,
Generators and fuels,
Hand carts and tools,
Tons of jobs to be done were found!
On day 2, still no hot water was had,
Milan started to smell a bit bad (kidding!)
But with perfectly spiked hair, he was everywhere,
With experienced matched by only my dad!
Day 3 was the hardest day yet,
And one we will never forget,
3 palettes of concrete,
Tons of beer, wine, and meat,
And Milan handled it like a vet.
Don’t forget about the water issue we had,
Cold showers were becoming a fad,
But Milan and Brent got the part,
and for the first time since the start,
HOT showers for everyone were had! =)
Day 4 was time to buckle down,
With only one more day of Milan around,
We asked questions galore,
And then we asked more,
Until all of the answers were found.
Day 5 Milan left on a plane,
After five days of us racking his brain,
I’ve really learned alot,
After all that he’s taught,
…but I still think Ken wishes he was staying! =)

Thanks for everything Milan!! You’re as legendary as Caretaker Pete around here!! Have a great summer!!
-Whitney

The talent at the OP amazes me!

Milan left on a flight that brought in 2 carpenters. The deal they struck with me was that they had to catch a Tyee before starting work. I was a little under the gun as their flight was delayed due to bad weather and daylight was running out. Never the less it doesn’t get dark till 10:30ish so after a quick dinner we headed out and before long were back on the dock with a 33 and a 22lb fish (weights estimated by “the Wizz”)…it was a sigh of relief as they can start work tomorrow morning. Here are Bryan and Ronne with their “after dinner” fish…

Speaking of dinner this photo demonstrates we were “matching the hatch” quite well…

Another first was Chef Michael with his ice breaking Chinook, although the photo was blurry the look on his face told me he’s hooked.

Congrats Mike and welcome to the Outpost.

Thanks to Brent (new dockhand #2) for this evening shot off the dock. Its beautiful up here right now…do YOU wish you were here with us?

 

As usual any comments, photos or questions can be sent to me @ kenbeatty@westcoastfishingclub.com.

Good night.
