Well, what more needs to be said, it was another unreal day at Queen Charlotte Lodge. I woke up in the morning to flat water, clear skies and the sun shining off of the pearl white of my Grady 114. The flat seas made for some ideal conditions for bottom fishing out on the Hali grounds during the slack tides. There wasn’t any lodge record breakers hauled up from the depths today but there was still several good sized slabs to be had. Yesterday my guest Bill C. reeled up the first big Hali of the trip, a perfect five bell ringer fifty pounder.
Back in shore QCL guests are still all smiles from playing Chinook after Chinook with a few coho thrown in the mix. Salmon fishing has slowed down slightly since last trip but there is still many bent rods at all of the major points throughout the day, especially during the tide changes. Day by day there are more and more tyees added to the board as well. Today Bills son Mike landed a beauty 34 pounder at Bird 2 early in the a.m. aboard 109 along with two of his brothers and QCL guide Andrew ‘fuzz show’. Beauty of a fish… well done Mike!
Hope to see you all up here soon. Keep your rods bent, nets ready and hang on for the ride.
