What a day to be on the water! Light winds have made running the kelp easy for the QCL fleet! Many nice Tyee class springs have been landed this weekend! Today the 109 ran the “stick and stay / make it pay” game plan. We ground the east corner of Parker for 12 hours non-stop. During the morning and into the early afternoon we had steady Chinook action with many 20+ lb. springs. Around 3 pm things slowed down for a while.
We stuck it out and it paid off as my guest Bob M watched his rod come off the clip. He reacted quickly and set the pins into this rocket. We all instantly knew this was a john dandy because it held deep, doing huge head shakes. After an awesome battle we put the fish in the bag. It was a beauty 35 lb. slab. Upon arriving back at the dock I saw many totes full of quality fish and many happy anglers.
Things are still rocking out there and it is shaping up to be a stellar finish to an unreal season!
Until next time,
Tight lines, Red decks and Silver Smiles!
