The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost-The 2013 OP Season

September 7, 2013 | 1484 Views

It is hard to believe that I left The Outpost just eight days ago, it feels like an eternity. After 93 consecutive days at The OP, 73 days with guests in house, the 2013 Outpost season has come to an end. Loads of great fish were caught, many memories created and rivalries fuelled.

The salmon fishing was hot right from the get go and remained steady until our last guests left. Yesterday, I received an email from a biologist and he said they released 3 times their limit two days ago, they are still around!!

Here are some pics to recap the season!!

Hagen holds this nice Hatchery fish. I think we caught more hatchery fish this year than compared to past year! Hagen released all the fish he caught, nice to keep them swimming!!

Onto the hali program! This year we caught some monsters and loads of perfect keeper size halis.

Here is Steve, Sammy and angler Scott who caught the biggest one of the year, it measured 83″ in length which on the charts is about 320lbs!! What a massive fish!

The brothers playing chicken to see who’s lips would actually come in contact with the slimy hali!!

Chef Paul and Stephanie created some spectacular food. They foraged for mushrooms and addled a west coast flair to each dish! I will try to describe each dish but will not do them any justice.

Jordan and Sammy boy took home the bragging rites, they each won 4 games. Next year is a new year and I am sure all returning staff with be chomping at the bit to win a game or two. To all guests, practice up and if you need a refresher on the rules email me and I will give you the rules and some ticks of the trade!!!

I couldn’t decided which sunset is more beautiful so I just thought I would add both!

I hope everyone who has followed The OP blog this summer has enjoyed reading, I have had fun writing and look forward to continuing next year. Until then remember to look every week or two for Heathers updates on how the winter in Port Louis is going.

Tight lines and have a good winter
