As the dawn broke this morning and we rolled out onto the fishing grounds, we were the first boat off the dock. The harbour was flat calm and the sun was poking through the clouds just over the point at Cape Edenshaw. The “shaw” looked so irresistible I just couldn’t help but peel off to the east. With such a calm morning and those nice soft rollers you can’t ask for better conditions.
The morning turned out to be a productive one with us touching a Chinook approximately every 20 minutes for the first few hours of the day. With only a handful of boats there, there was plenty of fish to go around. One of the great things about Edenshaw is that it’s always a bit of a variety pack. We got into Chinook, 2 Coho, a ling, and some rockfish. Around 10 o’clock a pod of orcas moved through and the fishing died down. But that’s just fishing and although fishing was a bit harder in the afternoon, there was a 52 pounder caught and released at Parker. The amazing thing about this place is every time you leave the dock that fish of a lifetime could be waiting, and today could be your turn at a chance for that unicorn.
