Trip Dates: June 19th – 22nd, 2016
The second group has officially left after yet another memorable and incredible fishing experience in the beautiful surroundings of Haida Gwaii. Conditions have been spectacular, with relatively dry weather, low winds, beautiful calm waters, and of course, many fish. The salmon are coming in bunches; just ask our expert guide Sam, who helped net a triple header for his three guests just minutes into day 1!
Jeff meant business from the moment he arrived at the lodge, capturing the first two “Catch of the day” honours, including a 30lb Chinook that landed him in the Tyee club. On day three, Dave H. experienced the thrill of reeling in a Tyee of his own and was elated to take home the largest salmon of the trip trophy and honours.
The halibut fishing has continued to be absolutely unbelievable and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Hours before this trip came to an end our senior guide Rick worked in unison with guests Travis and James to reel in a monster 50-pounder! “I thought I had bottom when I initially set the hook” he told me as I drifted by in the photo boat. Everyone was convinced that would be the heaviest Hali of the day, but Khoi’s group had other plans, arriving at weigh-ins with a 56 lb behemoth from Klashwein Point.
The Peregrine experience doesn’t stop after fishing, and our guests are taking full advantage of the luxuries available. Our head Chef Jason has been a magician in the kitchen, creating exquisite meals with the help of his immensely experienced team. Guests also enjoyed the warmth of our brand new fire-pit, the NBA Finals via satellite TV. Our in-house masseuse Lee, has been over- booked since we opened and anyone who has managed to get an appointment with her has been ever so thankful. Celebrations at the end of a great day of fishing continue to be a hit. Every angler has the opportunity to boasting rights as we hang their fish on the Peregrine scale, and what could be greater than the sounds of cheers from great friends and business associates.
The 2016 season has been off to a fantastic start and the team up here can’t wait for you to arrive and get you hooked up. We hope to see you soon for your trip of a lifetime!
Cheers to beverage crammin’ and gigantic salmon!
