Welcome Cliff, his wife Joy, son Andrew and bother Roger. Once again new guests for Thunder 1 we set out to find the fish. Weather again a factor in where we fished but with the Thunders covered and heated enclosure our guests stayed warm and dry while we waited for the first strike. After shaking a few smaller springs the rod bent and the reel screamed. Roger had a hold of a good one. Great fight and despite some heroic efforts to win its freedom the hard fighting Chinook ended up in the net. Nice job roger as we landed our first Tyee of the year. A well earned pin for a 32 lb Spring.
Not to be out done Andrew worked the jig hard while we enjoyed a hot lunch and halibut fished at the same time. The rod bent hard on the up swing and it was obvious Andrew was on to a good halibut. As he worked it to the top and it came into view we all realized what a beauty it was. It took careful consideration to determine that this fish was a keeper and very close to the 133 cm limit. After another wild ride to the bottom we landed a 70 lb hali, yahoooo! Good work Andrew. Under clearing skies and calm seas we headed home, a happy crew who liked their trip enough to rebook for 2018, looking forward to having you back!!
