So many special things happened today it’s hard for me to know where to start this blog! I decided today to take my guests to Green Point to start our day off salmon fishing. It’s such a beautiful place to fish. As soon as I arrived there, everything about it felt right…beautiful lake like conditions, sunshine, what a start! It couldn’t have been more than 10 minutes when the rods were in the water and the first fish of the day was ripping line off the reel! After an incredible fight the fish was on the deck weighing in at 24 pounds but it had the heart of a fifty the way it fought. The next few hours were nonstop action. It was the 9th day of the most phenomenal fishing I’ve ever experienced.
After lunch we went Hali-fishing with Skywalker and his guests. I noticed right away his guest was into a monster! We ventured over to take a look. When we got up to his boat Luke was in the process of tying up a beast to the side of his boat. He then told us all he was going to jump in the ocean and measure it!! Sure enough, he cannonballed off the side of his boat and laid the tape across the huge halibut. After climbing back into his boat and drying off he informed us all it measured out to 109 pounds! Congrats guys! We caught all our halibut really quickly and decided to go back to Green to finish off our day. The fishing continued to be stellar!
Then the humpbacks showed up! 4 of them bubble feeding and tail slapping right beside the boat for almost an hour! This day couldn’t have been more incredible! I love my job!!!
