July 23 – 27
WOWEEE TYEE! Our last trip was one of our best of the season so far! Our guests caught 25 tyees, including 6 fish over 40 pounds! In one single day, we hooked 3 fish over 40 pounds. The waters off Peregrine Lodge are teeming with big fish, and our guests have been doing battle with them in record numbers.
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!
Again, what an incredible few days it has been here at Peregrine Lodge. Big fish are everywhere. Join us in Naden Harbour soon, and catch your own 40-pound beauty!
