Well part two of our back to back weekends of stalking the Fraser River monsters is behind us and everyone left with big smiles. All of us weekend warriors did battle with sturgeon so no sturgeon virgins on either weekend thanks to Dean, Curtis, Davey and Jeff who all did an outstanding job once again.
Saturday was cool and damp which slowed the fishing down a bit but first timer Chuck warmed up pretty quick with his first ever sturgeon which also turned out to be the weekend big fish at 7′ 1″. Chuck has a new found respect for the power of these fish as did everyone else that did battle with these incredible fish.
Day two started out nice and sunny and the fish were biting. Everyone’s numbers went up and the smiles got bigger, great job Group #2.
And who could forget the two ladies Dawn and Sabrina who love these fish so much they seem to have to give each one their own little kiss.
Remembering a Great Friend and Fellow Guide
While we were away a great friend of mine and former Get Hooked Fishing Adventures guide Dave Ripley passed away from a very long fight with cancer. Many of you who had the good fortune to have him guide you or just have a chance to talk with him soon found out just what a character he was and that smile on his face was always there. He will be missed by me as well as the rest of the Get Hooked team. I am sure he is in a special spot where the fish are always biting. Please click on the the second picture, it is the Fishermans Oath and about says it all about Uncle Dave as we liked to call him.
2013 Fishing Season is Just Around The Corner
The opening day is May 15th for many lakes in the province. I hope that the ice will be off as still lots on the larger ones in our area. After a long long winter the fish will be a bit slow to start but shouldn’t take long to pick up. Please remember to stay barbless even if the law has changed it will be easier on the fish being released so that they will be there for future generations, thanks.
Remember to keep your hook in the water.
