QCL salmon fishing Well just when we were bragging about how great the weather has been this summer, we’ve had a couple of “rock ‘n roll”shows this week!  On the weekend, some good old-fashioned northwesterly winds bumped up the energy level a notch and we discovered that fishing is really good inshore!  From Bird 2 all the way past the Mazzaredo Islands and over towards Inskip Point, QCL guests found loads of terrific salmon action.  Admittedly we didn’t see so many halibut but everybody was busy!

Tyee Chinook salmon C&R

 

One exception on Friday was a stunning big Tyee, hooked up at Eagle Rock by guest Larry C, fishing with guide Nic Rasovic in the 102.  It might have been some good luck that Nic’s Dad was aboard as Larry’s fishing partner, but after an epic battle Nic slipped the net beneath a big chrome beauty that he quickly taped out to 48-pounds before getting it back in the water!  It took Nic a while to revive the huge Chinook but with some assistance from Fishmaster Trevor Harris they were thrilled to see it swim away with nice strong strokes of its tail.  Congratulations Larry!  Well done boys!  Always amazing to see this caliber of fish and thanks for sending her back!

The fishing has been steady through the weekend and into Monday as well.  Here’s a few shots of the kind of action we’re enjoying… No napping in the boat these days!
