Hey guys,

This weekend and upcoming short week will be hectic and then we head off for a few days of hearty party in Vancouver before flying up to Rivers Inlet for a week.
I'll post reports and pics from the trip here.

I'm heading this thread with the above pic of myself with buddy Andy,
and here we're on a charter last August in Sitka, with Captain Kent Hall aboard The 'Sitka Secret".

Andy and I met on a cruise, and our wives let us go for a day of fishing.
As late in the year as it was, the 4 of us on board limited on Chinook and Coho.

Andy caught the most and largest fish.

I raved about BC, and as nice as Alaska was and IS, I really sold the trip we had booked for July, and
Andy was in as fast as he could send his deposit in.

However, he had rather invasive disc surgery in February and the re-hab and convalescence
went south on him, and after 10 months of anticipation, pics, videos, websites, and general drooling...
he sadly had to pull the plug and back out, as his problematic disc refuses to cooperate.

Andy Bud, you'll be with us in spirit. The trip won't be the same without my salmon slayin' pal.

We'll send reports and pics, and you'll be aboard next season for certain.

Reports will start Wednesday the 13th.

Til then....

Mike and Crew.

The Inlet is going strong now.
I saw the great reports from Tofino, and it looks like action here is a bit behind WCVI,
but coming along nicely.

Anyone have any scoop from Hakai yet?

Start preppin! Aussies in town at Sutton Place Thursday, I likely won't be in til Saturday.

I met their ringleader through work some years back. These guys are hard-chargin' and fun lovin'!
Surfing, footballing, hang gliding, ocean fishing farkers, the lot of them.
Nicest guys you'll ever meet.
They're just a wee bit older than we are, and one is bringing his son, about 24, I'd guess.
We'll be in Vancouver proper till we head to the airport hotel on Monday.

Looking forward to it Scotty!

Last year we were there July 4-8. While we had nice fish and a great time, looking back, I figured we were a tad early. Looks like we will have more big fish this year. See you in Vancouver in a few days!
