We just had a visit from friends that are really into diving (she is an excellent underwater photographer). They come up once or twice a year to do diving with some fishing on the side and I dive tend on their boat. This year the water visibility was bad so we did a little extra fishing. Headed out first morning, a little jigging for a couple nice lings, a deep drop for a sablefish, They got in a great dive, stopped in the middle of the day for a try at salmon (I had low expectations), first two minutes a nice chinook was on and gone ................... then for the next hour and a half it was a couple of nice fat springs and six Beauty cohos !! Next morning we did a little salmon fishing but only small fish, tried a couple of deep drops but no love , so lets try a slot I know for halibut that was nearby, first drift nothing, next drift she says I have something and I look over and her rod is doubled over she is yelling its pulling hard !!............. gone.................. she drops it back down and boom fish on a nice 35 lber, next drift halibut on .......... pulls hook, next drift she hooks a nice 18 lber that she passes off to her boyfriend, next drift I get bit and its a good one !! big head shakes and tail beats, I say its an over size ( we have a max size for halibut of 126 cm), I knew this was over size in seconds, good hard fight, I put the coals to her not worrying about loosing it, got her to the boat, a good solid 100 lb fish, buddy pops the hook and off she goes (notice my homemade jig that has been my go too for years now). Fresh fish for dinner every night, lots of variety ........... fun visit.


Cheers:


Todd

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Thanks for sharing your pictures.  You had a super day for sure.  Good for you. 
   You can expect now to have even more friends 👬 .   
 Did you catch the jig halibut on your new trevalla rod?  What weight and length did you get?
Just wondering?    Good fishing and great food.

No springs this morning but there was a large grade of coho around. We can only keep one "wild" coho at this time so here are two beauties ........................ released another 11 and caught a few pink salmon. Today he puts down the flooring !! Wink

Todd
