Special Guests and Open dates

What a start to summer this has been. Fishing like we haven’t seen in years on the lake and the river didn’t even get high this season, first time I can ever remember that happening. Everyone should get out there and enjoy this beautiful summer fishing.

Special Guest

Well on June 19th I was waiting for my US clients at Beachcorner getting ready for another great day of fishing. Jeramy who had booked the day introduced me to a lovely group of ladies who were anxious to do some fishing here in Canada. Hope, Gina and Bree were anxious to fish as it was the first time for Bree and the other ladies only had a limited amount of fishing experience, Jeramy was the pro. I warned him that the ladies were going to kick his butt and he just laughed. Well Bree caught her first fish off the dock after a few pointers from me on her first cast, then Gina did the same thing. The fish gods were looking down on us. Well by the end of the day they had boated 165 fish with some real good sized fish caught by Hope but Jeramy did finish with the biggest. Hope said her wrists were tired from so many and such big fish. Turns out Hope Solo is the goal keeper for the US Womens soccer team who just won the World Cup this last weekend. Once I found out she played soccer I laughed and said at least you don’t need your hands for that, then she told me she was the goalie, I thought I was in big trouble, LOL. What a great bunch of people and some of the most polite folks I have ever met. Had a great time with them and I even watched some of their games.

New Lowrance Sonar Sonar on Board

Well they are all mounted and tested and all I can say is that the Elite 7 with CHIRP is outstanding. They are so easy to use and the imaging is incredible especially on the down imaging. The big 7 in. screen never leaves you fighting to see what is on the screen. This unit does so much and as I am learning more about it I will be happy to share it with you on the boats.

Bye the way I have a couple of Humminbird units for sale at a good price so call me if you are interested at 780-963-4279.

Thanks to Craig at Scotty Fishingfor supplying me with the hardware to mount the new sonar to my other fine Scotty products.

Fishing Report

Lake Wabamun continues to be insane for fishing. We have had every full day trip catch over a hundred fish a day with both pike and walleye in the last 3 weeks and it is not slowing down.

Lac Ste Anne was great for walleye and may still be but the fishing on Wabamun has us across the highway all the time. Had 100 fish days on this lake earlier and no reason it should have slowed down that much.

NSR is fishing well with some great goldeye so far this season. The new technique we are using is producing more of them on the hook instead of your bait being stolen. The walleye are steady and should only get better.

Stollery/Ronald McDonald Family Day

Who would have ever thought that it would be hot in June? The Family day outing for the kids had to be cancelled due to temperatures being around 32 degrees. Well maybe next year. Thanks to all of the Get Hooked guides and a few good friends for volunteering their time and boats to this great cause.

Open Dates for Booking

We had quite a flurry going there so a bunch of dates were booked up. We still have the following for weekends.

July 18,19, 25, 26

Aug. 2, 9, 16, 22, 23,30

Sept. 5, 6, 13, 26, 27

Oct. is still open for most dates and the 10th has only one boat available.

We still have several weekdays open as well so just call or email me for availability.

The Fishing Season Is In Full Swing and Hot

The weather we have had so far this Spring has been great and fishing has started out better then in many of the past few years. Get out there and enjoy the excellent fishing action.

Red Hot River Action/ New Fishing Technique

So far this spring the river fishing has been unlike anything I have ever seen for this time of year and just seems to get better all the time. The goldeye in particular have been off the charts in numbers and yesterday guide Randy and I were out testing the Upper Stretch of river and could not believe the size and fight of these fish. Many 2lb plus goldeye were caught and a few nice walleye with one 24 in. hen.

I have taken some of the fishing techniques I have learned fishing in BC over the last year and now incorporated them into how we fish our river and the results have been great. It is a very exciting new way for our guests to fish. It will keep you on your toes ready for a hit at any second.

IMG_2168 IMG_2182 image

We may get very lucky as the mountain melt maybe light this season but for right now the fishing is great.

Lake Wabamun

Conditions on this fishery are great for this early in the season. Reports from many of our guides say that they are catching good numbers and still some big fish. Remember to check out our new package “Get Hooked on a Shoreside Getaway” where you can actually stay right at the lake in the comfort of the Shoreside Inn.

Stollery Children’s Hospital/Ronald McDonald House Fishing Day

CISN radio is hosting this event on Pigeon Lake. After being asked by fellow Shimano Pro Staffer Cory Nault part owner of Barry J’s Marine to help with this first time event Get Hooked Fishing Adventure guides were all over it to volunteer to help with time and boats. June 28th will be the big day and we all look forward to showing these children a great time on the water. A big thanks to Shimano Canada for supplying hats for our boat captains. We will post pictures in the June BLOG.

Fish Data Collection to Continue

We are pleased to be part of fish data collection for our forth season. This year we will be taking measurements from all fish we catch on the river between June 1-Oct. 30 2015. This has been a big hit with our guests and gives them the sense they are giving back to the fishery. We will still be giving pins to those who help collect this data.

IMG_0446 (1024x765) IMG_0370 (598x800)

We look forward to booking many of our past guests again or perhaps you know someone that you think would enjoy a day adventure with us.

Open Water Is Here For 2015

The river and lakes are ice free early this year and the mountains don’t have a lot of snow left on them meaning a lighter run off this spring. I plan on going on the river this weekend to test the waters. Will seem strange after being on the rivers in BC the last 12 days. We just finished our annual sturgeon trips but more on that later. I had visited two famous Canadian lure manufactures on my recent trip so will share that experience later in the blog as well.

First Trip On The River April 26/15

Two great fish to start the season out. Nice 24 in. walleye and then this awesome 40in. long and an amazing 17in girth river pike. Nice start. (sorry for the poor picture but was alone)

2015 Start 12015 Start 2

 

 

 

Book Early To Get Your Dates You Want

We have been booking for a while now but still have lots of dates open for you to choose from. Last year we had several groups that we could not accommodate because of last minute booking, book soon to avoid disappointment.

IMG_1563 (1024x765)IMG_1649 (765x1024)IMG_1628 (1024x765)

 

 

This year many people are talking about cut backs but they still see Get Hooked as an affordable form of entertainment for personal pleasure and business . Call us today for any information you may be looking for or a date you have in mind. (780-963-4279)

2015 Spring Sturgeon Trips

Well I could tell you this year was off the charts fishing for sturgeon but I am not a person that can exaggerate. For some reason the fish were a little tight lipped this year and it was driving guides all up and down the Fraser river crazy, they had never seen it like this for the time of year. All of our fishermen caught fish.

The boys that joined us this year did well and caught their biggest and some of them their first sturgeon. As the fish get bigger you can ask Mike and Doug how much harder the fight is, sure put a big smile on their faces when they finally landed it. Benny and Wai were out for their first trip and day one gave them both a great workout catching their first sturgeon.

IMG_2076 IMG_2127 IMG_2122

 

 

 

If you want to book any salmon or sturgeon trips this season please give us a call and we can set it up for you.

Touring The Legends

After many years of being asked and me planning on doing it we finally got together to make it happen.

While out in BC I took a day to drive into Vancouver to visit our first ever sponsor Gibbs/Delta which was Gibbs/Nortec back in the early 2000’s. Long time owner Syd Pallister and partner Rob Alcock welcomed me to their plant. This is one of Canada’s oldest manufactures of fishing lures and tackle. Though much of what they sell today comes from off-shore as most tackle does they still make some of their own tackle on site still. It was like watching a piece of history come alive. They still take that pride in every lure they produce, very rare these days.

IMG_2102 IMG_2106 IMG_2104

 

 

On my way back home I stopped at another legendary tackle maker and brother of Syd, Richard Pallister that owns the truly legendary Len Thompson Lures in Lacombe Alberta. What a treat to be where the Red Devil, Five of Diamonds and so many other fine lures are made. How many of you have ever seen the original Red Devil and the stamp press that has cranked out over 50,000,000 lures. Like stepping back in time. Thanks to all of these gentlemen for sharing a bit of history with me.

Need A Weekend Getaway

Another new package for 2015 is the “Get Hooked on a Lake Wabamun Shoreside Getaway“. It is close to home and the fishing and accommodations are great.

Take care and remember to keep your hook in the water.

HOT FISHING ACTION

Well with all this nice weather it is hard not to want to be outdoors enjoying some awesome fishing action. The river has opened up early for us this year and has been producing some decent goldeye action and also we have been catching some of the walleye that our guests helped us mark and measure last season. It will only get better as Fall approaches.

The lakes continue to produce well with some great pike coming to the boats on Lake Wabamun and Jackfish producing some pretty healthy walleye. There was even some nice fish caught on the fly lately.

Explosive Fishing Action and the River Starts Earty

Well things are heating up on every front right now. We are finally looking at some decent weather and the fishing is on fire.

Lake Wabamun

This lake like others had a slow start but has just turned on hard and there are big fish being caught. This past Sat. saw our three boats land over 300 fish for the day, incredible non-stop action. There were 3 fish over 40 in. caught and several in the 33-38 in. range. If you have never fished this incredible pike fishery please give it a go, you won’t regret it. remember to be prepared for a big fish like the photo of our one guest called “The Stance” LOL.

Jackfish Lake

Once again this lake is a hotspot for walleye and good numbers of them. The color of these fish shows just how healthy they are. Our daily average has been between 60 and 80 fish with all weight class fish present. Always a well sheltered lake for those windy days.

IMG_0608 (800x598) IMG_1375 (800x598) IMG_1372 (598x800) IMG_1356 (800x598)

THE RIVER IS OPEN

For the first time in three years we are able to get back on the river in July. I was out testing the waters at the worst time of the day and caught a good number of goldeye and a few walleye. This is great as now there is three options for everyone to fish. All the fair weather fishermen this is the time for you to check out the river valley, it is incredible and a wide variety of fish to be caught. Fly fishermen the goldeye and mooneye are sucking the surface like crazy.

County Award

Get Hooked Fishing was honored in front of Parkland County Council on June 17 as the Business of the Month.

IMG_1330 (800x598)

Digger Anchor

If you were ever looking for that perfect anchor take it from me there is no better then “Digger Anchor”. These anchors are unique in two ways. First the digger design pushes the flukes over for quick penetration and the release system allows you to lift your anchor with very little resistance and flushes off almost all debris. We have used these anchors for over ten years and in fact we introduced The Fishin’ Hole to the product. They are the sole suppliers of Diggers fine line of products. Remember to pick up the Digger cleat when you get your anchor. These anchors are built to hold.

Remember to book Early

Late Summer and Fall fishing book up every year so please if you have a date in mind either book it on our website or call/email Keith.

Cheers and remember to “Keep Your Hook In The Water”

Keith

TripAdvisorTrip Advisor has awarded us a Certificate of Excellence for 2014. This came as a real surprise to us and we are proud of being bestowed this award. This prestigious award  represents consistently  high reviews by you our guests so a very big thank you to all of those that took the time to write a review.

Get Hooked and Parkland County have worked hard in creating awareness of the many economic, tourism and living opportunities that Parkland County has to offer.

Scotty Fishing– Practical and Innovative Products

From humble beginnings in 1952, Scott  Plastics Ltd. has evolved to produce thousands of products under the Scotty  Trademark which are sold into the fishing, marine, outdoor and firefighting  industries worldwide.

In this time the Scotty trademark  has become recognized to mean one thing – product excellence.

I recently installed  what I have to say is the best system for limited space for mounting sonar systems. We took a #241L base added the #429 gear head extender kit and #368 universal sonar mount to create the perfect system for any limited space mounting system or just mounting your sonar anywhere. In a second I can turn my Sonar so I can read it from the front of the boat as well as back. This product locks into place and unlike a similar system does not vibrate loose as you travel across the water.

All New Rods and Reels for 2014 

Wanting to keep up with the rapidly growing technology that Shimano is developing making it the industry leader in fishing rods and reels we have replaced all of our equipment for you to try out. The biggest feature is X Ship which provides the lightest handle rotation, even under load. This is accomplished with a large diameter drive gear, tight tolerance and bearings to provide rigidity. This is the benchmark of the next generation.

We are proud to be a Field Staff member with a strong relationship with Shimano Canada and look forward to using and promoting their quality products for many years to come.
