Happy Birth Day to You!!

What better birthday present can you have than a fishing trip aboard the Thunder 1. Well in my opinion anyways. Welcome aboard Sharon, her husband Dale, and Sharon’s sister Jocyline and her husband Brad. A return trip for Dale and Sharon it was a birthday present for Sharon, and we won’t say which one but she was very happy with her present. Sunny skies, empty anchorages and light winds greeted our guests as we headed out in search of a birthday fish. A little halibut fishing to get the arms warmed up and then out with the prawn traps and a feast of crab for dinner. The action started quickly the next day and did not let up until the trip was over. A great mix of hard fighting Chinook, some shiny Coho up to 10 lbs and some awesome halibut fishing. Only fitting that Sharon landed the biggest Spring salmon, tipping the scale just under the Tyee mark it was a beautiful 27 lb fish who put up a great fight. Way to go Sharon. I failed to mention Brad was also using the trip to celebrate a birthday and put some nice birthday fish in the bin for himself. A great trip, and our wishes for a safe drive home, no hitting a moose as Dale and Sharon did the last trip home.
