Here on the west side of Haida Gwaii we knew the weather was too good to be true at the beginning of the season, I think we are paying for it know!! Even with the tough weather, we are managing to find fish!
The Coho are everywhere and the average size is getting better, around 9lbs.
Hali fishing is as good as usual, here a few boats are on the anchor, Smiley Mylie is measuring this hali for Larry. This 60 incher, about 110lbs was released and off like a rocket to the bottom.
Carol and Al had a great morning and came home with one of each species. A nice Ling, a better Chinook and and even bigger take home hali, Nice work!
Justine is trying to steel the thunder from her cousin Cody, but Cody wont give up his glory and hoists his two great chinooks!
The big fish of the trip so far goes to Ron, he landed this 32lb beauty with Sammy this morning at Three Rocks, which is not 15 minutes from the lodge.
Cody took the afternoon off from fishing and went on a hike behind the lodge, it takes about 20 minutes to get to the top. Here are a few pictures of the amazing land scape.
A dried up pond, hard to believe this can happen in Haida Gwaii…
This is what I would expect to be much more typical in a temperate rainforest, wet and boggy and lush.
The wind is not holding our eager fishermen/women back, there are hungry fish out there and we are willing to brave the waters to track them down! Tomorrow is another day, lets hope fore calm waters!!
