2016 End Of Season Party ~ Rock & Roll The Season Away!

October 6, 2016 | 551 Views

Imagine that you are about to leave for the last trip of the year to The Clubhouse. All of the other lodges in Haida Gwaii have closed for the season, but there are still lots of Chinook Salmon feeding at Langara Island and the Coho have been steadily increasing in size into the upper teens. Now imagine that the weather forecast is for sunny skies and unseasonably warm. And now imagine that along with all the other happy people on board the flight to Massett, four of the top musicians and singers from Vancouver’s legendary music scene are on board. Just a week earlier they were backing Canadian music icon Randy Bachman at a large-venue show in New York state opening for ZZ Top, but now they are with you and ready to rock Langara Island at the second annual End Of Season Party for The Clubhouse.

That is exactly what the final guests of the season for The West Coast Fishing Club were thinking and feeling as they got on board the final flight of the season. Upon arrival they had to be patient but eventually started to find fish out on The Highway past McPherson Point and other places, including Lacy Island, where the guests on Korey Fletcher’s boat tubbed out on the first day. Eventually almost every boat limited out on this trip. The boys in the band, The Dock Rockers, put in a couple of memorable shifts too, including on day three when drummer Marc LaFrance and multi-instrumentalists Ian Cameron and Mick Dalla-Vee stayed out through the lunch break to take advantage of a red-hot bite that saw them all hit their daily limit by 2:00 pm. Guitar slinger Brent Knudsen headed out for a brief two-hour fish that afternoon that saw him and a couple other guests get into a whole lot of hungry and big Northern Coho that averaged about 15 pounds, not to mention a blue shark that frequent these waters.

By the time guests congregated for the cocktail and appetizer hour each evening, the Dock Rockers were tuning up for a short pre-dinner set. They then dined with guests and mixed freely with as many people as they could and happily shared their lives on the big stages and in the studio with anyone who cared to ask. And then at about 9:30 each night they played another rockin set, turning the lounge into the world’s most remote and coziest night club. People danced and sang along and the whole thing at times just seemed too perfect to be real. On the last night the staff and guides were invited to join the party, and guests enjoyed having them there in order to thank them for 120 straight days of providing the service and comfort for which The West Coast Fishing Club is famous.
