August 30, 2019 | 2601 Views
Our season will soon come to a close which makes us sad to leave behind the fantastic season we have had, but happy as it has been so memorable. With this being our last report of the season, I want to extend a big thank you to our amazing guests who keep North Island a special place in The West Coast Fishing Club family. This week was one consisting of ups and downs but nonetheless still a great week for our guests. Weather permitting at some fishing locations, most of our catches were off Coho Point, Andrews Point and Langara Rocks.
Our weekend trip was a windy one that kept most of our fleet on the east side of Langara. With some return guests and some first timers, there were some impressive catches regardless of some spotty fishing. Returner Jacob Molitwenik showed his skill and knowledge of Langara by angling a 31lb spring off of Coho Point. He also caught a 25lber, which was a top fish for this trip. With slower fishing this week, we have just a few honourable mentions with Bob Cooper, Jamie Holliday, and Robert Levy all catching 24lbers.
It was tough slugging throughout the week but the good weather seemed to keep spirits high regardless. Unfortunately no Tyees to report this week, but we still saw a few respectable mid-twenty pounders under tough conditions. Kevin McKibbin topped our chart with his 26lb chinook. Following him was Danica Arbutina with a 25lber and Tori Burnwell, Scott Spence and David Macleod all angling 24lb chinooks.
As we cap off our season with a customer appreciation trip we want to thank everyone who made this season so memorable from start to finish. See you all next year and until then – tight lines!
