Too many fish in the sea to miss one!

Posted August 2, 2015 by Georgia Husby

Trip Date: July 26-29  

There is only one word that can describe the group that is here for their 27th year, and that is loyalty. We are honored each year when the "Toigo Group of Family and Friends” returns to us. We marvel the fishing skill set of each one of the guests, and their confidence when hunting that big behemoth salmon knowing that it won't slip away easily. Throughout the many years here at the lodge together, they have a collective and profound understanding of the quintessential experience of fishing with family.


Even though the rain is upon us, the lodge was warmed with laughter and triumph as day one got off to a roaring start with five guests angling a Tyee. Kim Green hooked into a 54-pound monster late Tuesday afternoon and after battling with this spring for a good hour she finally landed, taped and released this beautiful catch. We are so pleased that Kim chose to release this "King Salmon”and I know she was so into the amazing gratification of allowing succession for this unique species. Brody was double lucky with his catch of two mid size 30 pounders.

The daily guide pool is well sought after here by both the guests and the guides and you better have a slab at the end of the day to take the title of "Largest Fish Of The Day”.  

On the final day of the trip, the boats hit the water early to enjoy their last bit of time fishing together. Within minutes of dropping all the weighted lines on Dan’s boat, Dominique was into the fight of his life releasing a 53-pound Chinook. Chad also had great morning fishing with guide Koi, and was thrilled to release a 53 pounder King. Koi had plenty of action on his boat for his guests as they also managed to get another 42-pound spring. There was a frenzy of action as the day played out with many Tyees being either landed or released including the champion of the trip Jon Toigo, who was challenged by a massive hog which taped out to be 58 pounder. We congratulate Jon for his outstanding angling skills and the title of catching the " Largest Fish of the Trip”.  

Our trip summary is off the charts as our guests enjoyed the best trip of the year so far. A total of 28 Tyees between 30 pounds and 58 pounds were either landed and/or released. Including 4 spectacular kings over 50 pounds. The fishing grounds are on fire and the team here can not wait until tomorrow morning when the sun will rise and more Tyees will be angled by our new arriving guests.  

Until next time,  

Keep those rods bent!

“Good things come to those that bait”

Posted July 28, 2015 by Georgia Husby

Trip Report July 22-26, 2015

 
Wow! The time is flying by this year as we get closer to Hogust. You know it’s almost the end of July when the Page groups arrives. The lodge’s atmosphere was very familial this past trip as the Montgomery’s, Muirs and Belzbergs returned yet again for their fishing adventure of the year with us.
We welcomed newcomers Erin and Jose from California. Erin was a dynamo on the rod, landing herself a 38-pound Tyee and a 70-pound Halibut. Some say it is beginners luck, but I say it was her enthusiastic spirit of loving all good things in life, and the exceptional fishing here is to be included in her mantra. Jose also landed himself a Tyee, as he was not to be outdone by this little superstar.  

Sean and Duncan Muir tagged 3 Tyees on their license, but the highlight of the trip was playing a monster over 60 on the last day. Craig has much to be proud of with his sons, especially their ability to call a piggy to the boat….SU…EY!!


Klashwein has been on fire for the past week. The downriggers have been the key to successfully hooking up in an area that runs fast with water. With the wind coming out of the south for a few days, smoother waters were enjoyed as we rounded about the corner.   

Those that are hippie fishing, the weighted rods are keeping the guests busy at either Naden or Parker point.  

I was pleased to have a few gals here for this past trip. I know I had a blast on the water with them. They seemed to light up the lodge and enjoyed the amazing angling and habitat on the fishing grounds. A few disappointments for them were talked about in the evenings …… and I always stop to ponder"Why the biggest one of their day is always the one that got away”. Nevertheless, they left with full boxes and a few extra pounds because like me, it is hard to say  "No ! ”to the donuts Mansour keeps baking and the incredible cuisine by Reto.  

The halibut grounds are robust with guests releasing the over 100 pound mark and taking home the 60-70 pound keepers. A total of 14 Tyees between 30 pounds and 46 pounds were either landed or released this trip and our congratulations are extended yet again as they return home with fishtails and fish tales.  

We encourage all our guests to book early for their 2016 fishing adventures as the spots available are filling up fast already.  

Until next time,


"Best Wishes for Big Fishes”

Smacking’em at Peregrine Lodge

Posted July 23, 2015 by Georgia Husby

Trip date: July 19 - 22 

Haida Gwaii is infamous for its mystical shorelines and our guests first day presented itself with a light drizzle of rain and a low cover of fog that swept across the gentle waters of the north. This is the perfect combination set-up to lure those big fish up to shallower depths.
Seven Tyees were angled on opening day, with the largest being just short of a forty pounder. Parker Point is maintaining to be the hot spot and chosen location to get a chance at a trophy sized salmon.Not to be outdone in size, 14-year old Eric reeled in a 67 pound Halibut, guided by Johnny. Eric was grinning endlessly with the accomplishment of his grand feat.

On day 2 of this trip, four more anglers joined the Tyee Club for the 2015 season, followed by four Tyees over 30 pounds on the final day plus one over 40.  Leo Robert had a great final day of Halibut fishing and on their return to the lodge Jake decided to drop in at the Mazzerados, a tempting spot, which is incredibly close to home. The line went peeling off on his weighted rod and the battle was on. Leo was thrilled to release this massive Tyee taping out to be 43 pounds. We congratulate Leo for his outstanding angling skills, and also to all the newest members to join the Tyee club at Peregrine Lodge, especially to "No-Tyee  Kevin” who can not possibly be tagged with that name anymore!
]
With exuberant amounts of needlefish everywhere on our fishing grounds, we are constantly seeing "silver” dancing on the surface followed by the reoccurring sounds of splashes of salmon being enticed to expose themselves. 

The new dock weigh in program has been a highlight for both new and returning anglers.
The anticipation of "I can’t wait for the weight” has stepped up a notch or two, as Hippopotamus time is in full swing, and Hogust is just around the corner at Peregrine Lodge.

We have 4 spots available this year between August 2nd and August 9th. Why let someone else reel in your fish of a lifetime? Get ready, get packed and get in on all the reel big action this year. Please call Bruce at 1-800-663-0992 to book one of our "Last Minute Specials”.

Until next time, thank you for choosing Peregrine Lodge for your fishing adventure and remember, you are always family to us.

Tight lines, and bent rods. Georgia
