CH Report: 59 lb Tyee! – The Bite is On – Jul 18, 2021

July 19, 2021 | 1431 Views

A rainy night here at Langara,  shower after thunder shower today, the fleet is sparkling clean lol. If you enjoy a change of pace weather wise from the hot humid southern B.C. this is the place to be for sure. No forest fires here, no smoke on the horizon, just decent chinook fishing to be enjoyed by all those able to visit this year.

We have had a few nice fish slip by our doorstep this past week, topped by a released 59 lb specimen angled by MARK SMITH, netted by guide Paul Jordan. This fish was found out on the West Bank, hooked last pass of the evening on a cut plug herring.

Here is a pic snapped of the lucky man along with his guide Paul.

This season’s chart topper – a 59lb tyee angled and released by Mark Smith and Guide Paul.

At the same moment, Peter Dixon and his guide Jackson Simmons located a 38 lber over at POP OFF,  to end their evening, so a few did squeak through for sure on the ebb tide.

Guests’ Maj and Peter posing with Peter’s 38 lb tyee! Caught and released with the help of guide Jackson.

Personally my boat never found an elusive tyee, but I have seen a steady amount of chinook in the high teens, low twenties for sure. Below are a few pics I took of some of my recent guests out on the WEST BANK.

My guest enjoying the chinook fishery.

Good times on the water had by all!

Chuck and Mary Anne had some good fishing, these fish low twenties.

Guest Chuck enjoying a sunny day and flashing a smile after reeling in this perfect take-home chinook.

Up next is Kendall, who fished an afternoon with Lucy, a request I am seeing more and more. Lucy has been a very lucky dog haha. We found decent fishing in the Fish Bowl area on all tides!

Kendall is all smiles with a fish on the line and taking advantage of quality time with guide Lucy.

And the final product – nice catch, Kendall!

Below is a pic of Mary Anne Charles with her best chinook, again, Lucy brought us the luck.

Guest Mary Anne with her 18lb chinook. Well done!

Today’s action was slower and as mentioned a downpour of rain for most of the shift. That said, a few breaks in rain provided me a chance to ad a couple pics to the report.

Korey had top fish of the trip with his group, a 37 lb chinook which was promptly released. Below is a pic of boat 6 in the Bowel, where it belongs this time of year, doing what it does best. Hooking large chinook salmon!

A beautiful 37 lb tyee in the net… and promptly released!

There is some coho around, mostly in 400 feet of water out off Andrews. Inshore there  appears to be the pinnapeds so we are avoiding those tacks. The coho seem smaller this year, 9 lbs considered big this week.

Halibut fishing is halibut fishing haha, always very good at Langara. There are the beasts in most locations, and the nice 15 to 25s on our usual spots. We are finding the west side very good on the decent weather days.

On the whale front HUMPBACKS! Plenty of em, the west side is plugged. Miles of HUMPBACKS! Plenty eagles in the mix, you will see plenty wildlife, promise!

Guests have been treated to countless whale shows this season including this display of humpbacks bubble feeding.

So I gotta run here, out early tomorrow. The weather is wet, but hey, we have the luxury of fishing in an amazing area on this coast, and our fishing areas are ten minutes from the door. Wet? A quick run in and a hot tub is waiting for you, Chef Dave and his team are locked and loaded with anything you might dream of eating! This lodge is set so close to our fishing areas, no long boat rides here. A candy boat lol, delivering hot drinks and prawns to your boat side! You will not go hungry here.

Ok, time to hit the sack, check back soon, Screamer
