Energy was high on the dock this changeover, a new group of guests were arriving and the weekend brought in the first big fish of the season. There where multiple Tyees caught on the weekend, capped off by a 54 on Friday and a 61 on Sunday! As guides, this is exactly what we have been waiting for! As a whole we are all just a little bit more on edge, aware that any bite could be that fish of a lifetime.

Every day we are seeing more bait, more diving birds and more seagulls on large bait balls. Yesterday while fishing in Yatze bay there where huge bait balls for over three hundred yards in the tide line and you could see salmon slashing through them just under the surface of the water. Things are setting up real nice and it’s time to start grinding for those trophy class slabs.
