    Was over the road last weekend, went up Friday morning and followed the grader most of the way there so it was pretty good going.
    tried to fish a couple of times but the wind beat us up pretty good, still lotsa prawns though

    Good luck with that - 24 knt winds and 9.2 feet at 12 seconds and building. Long range isn't sounding too good either. If it does drop there should be a few on the surf line, and if it doesn't bring your surf board.

    Yes it's bad out there. I should have said next weekend as that's when we are going.

    Theres a few there allright... got this 27lbr on the weekend. The weather was phenomenal for a change!


    Also picked up a 15 and a 9 in the hour we targetted salmon. Pics in with the hero shots.

    Had fished halis for the tide before looking for springs and managed only one fish @ 29lbs. Kinda odd, but I think I was a bit late getting to the spot.

    Decided to enjoy the weather and look for some yummy bottom dwellers and were rewarded accordingly. This bugger went 19lbs!

    He's going on the lodge wall just to prove how good the bottomfishing can still be in this area!


    A few more of those beauties and a couple of lings to round out the days catch and here's the smorg.



    We are going to be having a halibut derby on May long weekend based out of the lodge as well. Will do up a seperate post. Too many guys have kids to deal with so Easter doesn't work.

    Surf line means anywhere from Aphitrite over to Beale and the structure along that line.

    Great times with great friends, really needed that, it's been a LOOOOONG ugly winter up this way!!!
