I knew we would have fun.
But, how was the fishing this past week?
It wasn’t too bad for king salmon. Red salmon, on the other hand, was rather slow.
On Tuesday, I fished with Rad and Matt. It was the last day that a king salmon could be retained. Here’s Matt proudly showing off the largest fish of his life. I’m glad I could be a part of it.
On Thursday, I spent an enjoyable day on the bank with returning guests Mike, Nicole, Kris, and newcomer Jacqui. Here’s Kris with a hard earned sockeye.
Nicole caught the first red salmon of the day. Her husband, Mike, was the highliner and ended up with a three fish limit. Kris, and Jacqui, unfortunately, ended up with one. A lot different than when Kris was here three years ago. On that trip he was part of a crew that caught twenty four red salmon in an hour. It’s true when they say timing is everything.
On Friday, I was reunited with Dario, and his friends Fernando and Tony. Dario caught and released two king salmon, and Tony caught one. Sorry Fernando, we’ll get ‘em next time…
I ended the week fishing with Nick, Matt, Dan, Breanna, and Cassie. Cassie had the hot rod and caught the largest king of the day. Matt claims the king he caught earlier in the day was a 90…90 grams that is. There are no photos to confirm or deny his claim.
While trolling for kings, Matt caught a bonus red salmon. It was a beauty.
And another bonus red for his dad, Dan. Hopefully, on our next trip coming up this Friday, I’ll be able to take fish photos of Nick and Brianna too.
For the week ahead.
With continued low king salmon sonar counts, I won’t be surprised if the king season will be closed. The red salmon run seems to be a couple of days late, but I think the catching will start to improve every day.
Come back next week to see how we did.
