Tony and Debbie brought their girls Tyler and Julia salmon fishing. It was a change from their usual trout fishing and camping family vacation. They had a day exploring Quadra Island and Rebecca Spit and on a different day they took a trip on a whale watching excursion. As it happened, a humpback whale came near while we were fishing and blew a spray close enough to give a surprise.
Fishing was great with fast and slow times during a full day. We started out with action, boated one, released a coho and and an undersized chinook and that was followed by a long dry spell. We searched and moved out to the islands to try a pretty spot, but only had one bite, and then doubled back. Patience and good attitudes were rewarded. Right time , right place and the bite was on. Everyone caught at least one salmon, and it was Tyler who had the big one, and a workout to bring him to the net. Good job Tyler and good team fishing !
