Enjoying great weather, Barb & I, our guide Geoff & Scott Sund shot a dynamic Halibut show jigging 200-300′ depths with the Williamson vertical jigging spoons in the 5-7 oz. size, & also using traditional Halibut jigs/plastic squid lures. We travelled about 7-miles from www.sundslodge.com, and found relatively calm waters and ended up hooking many Halibut to complete our trophy TV show. Many of the guests also limited-out on Halibut to compliment their Chinook Salmon catches. Make sure to check the new series when it airs on TSN for this exciting and educational program.
We are continuing to enjoy excellent weather while shooting at Sund’s Lodge, in beautiful BC. Today we caught a variety of bottom fish and enjoyed a unique Sund’s shorelunch which included freshly caugth Dungeness Crab, fresh salmon chowder, and a full-out barbacue on the beach. Now, that’s fishing and eating in style. Tomorrow we will be chasing tropy Chinook salmon in the mornining and Halibut mid-day. I will keep you posted.
We are having an excellent trip filming two TV episodes at Sund’s Lodge, BC. Even though the long-range forecast last week called for 6-days of rain, we had bright sunny skies today and the next two days also look excellent. Trophy Chinook salmon are plentiful and several fish over 30 lbs. have been landed over the last couple of days. Along with our Canadian Sportfishing crew, we have also met very nice guests that have travelled from Indiana and Oklahoma, USA to enjoy the excellent fishing Sund’s has to offer. In addition to trophy chinook salmon we are also catching good-size halibut and rock cod. One of the benefits of fishing from Sund’s Lodge is that you don’t have to travel far from the lodge to have excellent fishing, and there are so many islands and inlets to fish that anglers can always find calm waters to fish in. We’ll keep you updated daily on the fishing action. If you would like to book a trip to Sund’s Lodge, you can contact them at, www.sundslodge.com .
[singlepic id=39 w=320 h=240 float=left]I just returned from filming my first Gar Pike show on the Bay of Quinte. After 2-days of scouting shorelines from Belleville to Deseronto, ON, I was blessed to locate enough Gar Pike to successfully produce and entertaining and educational show catching them on the Original Rapala #9 size. The action was non-stop and we were able to get all of the Gar Pike chasing and hitting the Rapalas live on camera. There were lot’s of jumps and many Gars that got off. Make sure to look for this program when the new series starts in the fall. You will see lot’s of action and you will get great tips on catching Gar Pike right on the surface!
