Double Header Big Chinook - Port Hardy

Postby brandonkop » Fri Sep 23, 2016 1:50 pm

It's been a while... did a bunch of Saltwater fishing this summer. Out to the island three times and caught a lot of nice fish. The best moment was when my dad and I double hooked up on big Chinook Salmon. Personal best for both of us at the same moment. Was excellent. Lots of high fives and excitement to go around.

Port Hardy BC is synonymous with amazing salmon fishing. Even though people claimed this was a tough summer we still had an amazing time out there on the ocean. This goes to show that studying charts, online resources and Chinook Salmon behavior goes a long way to you actually hooking up on some of these Trophy Fish. We fished 4 inch Gibbs Delta spoons in green white and glow patterns for the majority of the time coated with Mike's Herring Scent behind Gibbs Delta Lemon Lime Flashers. This is how we get them!

There are some others from the summer if you're interested on youtube.
