Trip 11: July 23rd-27th

Posted July 27, 2014 by Mark Kelsey

 
Our most recent trip, from July 23rd to July 27th, continued the momentum of our last few trips, with incredible numbers of fish in the 40 pound range being caught. This trip, our guests caught 15 tyees, and in a single day we caught and released 3 fish over 40 pounds!




 
Dallen, pictured above, did battle with this 41 pound spring off Parker Pt. The fish was netted, measured, revived and released with the help of guide Sam, helping ensure that future generations will be able to shake hands with such incredible fish.





 
It was Jeff, however, who had one of the most prolific days of fishing we’ve seen this year. Jeff was fishing with guide Jorgen on Saturday morning when his fishing partner hooked into a 38 pound spring. That easily could have been the fish of the day, but Jeff wasn’t ready to call it quits – before long, he had caught and released both a 43 pounder and a 47 pounder! It was a day that none of them will soon forget. Jeff’s 47 is pictured above.




 
On the same day, James caught a 44-pound spring off Parker Pt with the help of Johnny Williams.





 
Georgia and guide Lee also hooked into a massive spring, netting and releasing a fish that taped out at 43 pounds.





 
Our guides also got into some massive halibut. Conditions have been ideal for this lately, with calm seas and light winds making bottom fishing easy. And there certainly have been big fish around – Dick and guide Cory caught this huge 69 pound hali on Sunday. You won’t find many legal halibut bigger than that – Dick will certainly eat well this winter!
 
 



 
Overall, this trip was a big success on the fishing front, and an enjoyable experience for both guests and staff. Join us in Naden Harbour soon, and catch your own 40-pound beauty!

Trip 10: July 20-23rd

Posted July 23, 2014 by Mark Kelsey

It’s safe to say that the giants have truly arrived in the waters off Peregrine Lodge. We are entering that time of the season when smaller chinook salmon are replaced by mammoth tyees, packed with muscle after gorging on herring and needlefish in our backyard. These fish are strong, hefty, and spirited, and the guests on our last trip had the chance to do battle with many of them.

  On the very first day of our most recent trip, our guests caught 8 tyees – 3 of which were over 40 pounds! A couple boats had two-tyee days – Doug and Colin, for example, both landed 34-pound springs. They were guided by Brian W, and landed the fish off Parker Pt.


 
One of the most impressive fish of the trip was a gorgeous 41-pound spring, caught off Green Pt. by Akimi and guide Mikey. The fish, hooked in the tail, absolutely peeled line, forcing Akimi to dig in her heels and fight.



  Once it was landed, guide Mikey held the fish up so that Akimi and her family could pose for a photo. What an incredible fish!





  The sun was out again this week, the water was calm, and a number of spots were productive. In addition to the fish caught at Green and Parker, a number of nice springs were caught at Bird Rock this trip, including a 44-pounder. Shawn also caught a nice fish off Bird, which hit the scale at 31 pounds.



  All in all, there were some massive fish caught this trip, under sunny skies. It is an outstanding time to be at Peregrine.
