Congratulations to mother and son fishing team Jayne and Ian Coe on their amazing 42 pound “Tyee”.
This week has been particularly meaningful as most of our guests are returning from our first season of operation and have been long time friends. Jayne and Ian’s family have a long history in the sport fishing industry in BC and the pursuit of adventure. We’ve voted Jayne as the most stylish angler 2015.
The fishing has been great and the weather has been co-operating as well!
Hot spots continue to be Cheney Point and Cape Mark. The “Notch” on the west side of Wurtele Island has also been producing. Chinook continue to be caught in reasonable numbers with the largest this week being a 42 pounder. Coho are growing and our largest of the season was weighed in yesterday at 18 pounds.
All lures and baits are working well and many anglers are changing methods during a days fishing. Large herring cut-plugs and run whole are working well at shallower depths first thing in the morning. Flashers and Hootchies or spoons are working well trolled at deeper depth of 100ft during the afternoon.
Congratulations to Terry Hughes and her 38 pound Chinook; the largest of our current trip! After an incredible 30 minute fight this awesome fish was landed with the assistance of husband Sean and fishing guide Jay.
Anglers have been using our “Tyee” rowboat and taking advantage of the calm waters and close proximity to excellent fishing areas. Here, KPL owner Lisa Cuthbert rows while Lisa “T” baits the hooks in pursuit of salmon along the kelp beds at Cheney Point. Five fish to the boat within two hours isn’t bad!
We’re looking forward to hosting the many anglers fishing with us until September 5th. Should you have any questions or require information regarding our fishing and lodge please contact us anytime!
