John and Inge joined Stewart and Tamara for an overnight exploration , all around Quadra, Sonora, Maurelle and Cortes Islands, in a big circle route. Stewart and John are childhood school friends, and they have kept in touch with each other while each has moved around continents. John and Inge have come from Norway to reconnect, and what better way than a boating and fishing adventure.
We started in the north Straits fishing a few spots on the way around. Look what Tamara boated !
On the way some Pacific White-Sided Dolphins played with us for a little while.
Dinner was the fresh pink salmon . Delicious on the barbeque . The cottage is adorable with a great wide view.
On the return day there was a southeast wind coming up. We fished in a sheltered place for the morning, and then crossed over to the south end of Quadra. There I was very impressed how well this crew handled some waves. All are boaters and it shows. We had some fast action there or a while, released wild cohos and Inge played a chinook that threw the hooks after a few minutes. A great way to end.
