Hello again, we are back to share some more of the goings on around beautiful Dundas Island.
Early June brought with it some wetter weather, but that didn’t dampen spirits as the Chinook fishing continued to heat up with more and more good-sized fish showing up as the days got longer.
Freshie fishing continues to be consistent in the early hours of the morning, and we are starting to see more bait in our favourite spots with tons of signs of life in the water. As we all know – bait on the sounder is a good sign when looking for aggressive feeding Chinook.
There have also been great signs of Coho already this year. In early June we were seeing the odd one jumping on top, slashing through bait balls, and the exciting but frustrating chasing of weights they are famous for.
With cooperative winds we have been to explore the west side of the Island and beyond. These areas have been producing well all season for bottom dwellers, and with the first sign of a Coho run showing up offshore, some beautiful Coho have been making it back to the dock as well.
Trip 7 was a memorable one for many of us. My parents, along with Jason and Robyn’s parents made it up to the Island for 5 days of great times on the water – a rare treat! It was great to be able to share our summer lives with the folks and help them understand what drives all of us to keep coming back every summer. They were blown away with the scenery, wildlife, and of course the fishing.
I fulfilled a life long dream of mine by helping my mom with a belated Mothers’ day gift. With Herbie the Eagle watching from One-Pull, she battled and landed her first ever Tyee! It was a surreal experience and I was glad to share it with my pops as well who taught me everything I know about fishing.
Thank you to everyone who shares pictures and help make it possible for us to keep you in the loop!
Until next time,
