Two Dave’s Beat Down Derby: Day 02June 5, 2013 | 1864 Views
June 4th – Stealth Mode
From the deck at The Clubhouse, one could barely make out the faint outline of Lucy Island as fog blanketed the shoreline of Parry Pass. A scene reminiscent of pretty much every spy movie ever made. You know, two guys in raincoats whispering to each other on a bridge in London while a small boat quietly drifts by on the Thames River below. In a way, it’s the ideal backdrop for the situation. As any fisherman will tell you, fog means light winds and light winds means calm seas. Go anywhere you want, catch a big fish and nobody will know until it’s too late. Obscurity makes for confidentiality. Fishing in stealth mode. Perfect for a derby. The morning session was the quietest that we have seen so far, in terms of number of fish recorded however Paul Lebrun marked a very nice 28 pounder and Carlo Wein cracked the tyee mark with his 30.
As was the case yesterday, the afternoon session provided more action for anglers however the mist that had shrouded the area in the morning seemingly disappeared as fast as it had arrived. Stealth mode was over for now. The boats working around Lacy Island were rewarded with good numbers of chinook in the twenties. By the end of the day, guest Patrick Whyte was the bridesmaid once again with his second place 29 pounder. The fish of the day and new derby leader was recorded by Bob Wills with a 31 lb. Tyee. A popular win for a most deserving competitor. Team Two Dave’s were noticeable by their absence during the review of the days top fish. Can they pull a rabbit out of the hat and once again snatch victory from the jaws of defeat? Tune in tomorrow to find out.
Good night from The Clubhouse at Langara Island.
