Well as we are in the middle of another deep freeze I wanted to let everyone know that we have already started booking for the 2013 season which is early this year but great for the folks that know the dates they want and making sure they get them. Last year was a new record for us at Get Hooked and I want to say thanks to all of our guests for their support. This will be our 19th year in operation and we look forward to providing the same level of service you have come to expect. If you do have any dates in mind please feel free to call me or drop me an email.
2013 Spring Sturgeon Trip
I have started to plan the annual Spring trip for the Grey Ghosts on the Fraser River. We usually head out late April before everyone gets to busy here at home. Last year saw everyone catch a sturgeon and share a lot of good memories with old and new friends. For the first time we had a lady win for the largest sturgeon. Dawn fought her fish for a good 40 min. and not once did she falter. That fish did not stand a chance. We had several “Sturgeon Virgins” on the two trips we hosted but they went home with some great stories.
Get Out There For a Little Hard Water Fishing
I have not iced fish for years as I usually head South but not this year so I thought I would give her a go. I love to just be out there and if I catch a fish it is a bonus. Well my first day out turned into just that. We caught fish right off the start and had a fairly steady day of bites and hook ups. I watched a flag fly and ran over to the tip up to set the hook, I didn’t expect such a solid set then big run by the fish. When her head crossed the hole the first time we were stunned at the size. I was able to get her through on the first pull which was nice, quick picture and back in. She weighed in at 23 lbs., awesome from a small lake 1/2 a mile from my home. If you get a chance and have not done it for a while give it a go again, I have been out a few more times and enjoyed the day. It is a great way to spend time with family and friends.
