Thanks to the board members, i was able to get Offroader and his girlfriend out this morning for a short 4 hour outing

the weather was perfect

So were the clients ....a ton of laughs and some great fishing to boot.....we went 15 for 17 and a few solid knockoffs.......water was cold and best action was around the 30 foot mark

It was Connies birthday , so some pressure was put on to get her a decent salmon....we succeeded in that

lots of 2 year olds , a couple of shakers and just quality eaters were boated by this absolutely terrific couple that had never salmon fished Hats off to doing so well on the rods

It was a short but very memorable outing

some fish porn for you all

And I am sure Offroader will add more when able to do so



I love my job

We have to say today was WAY better than expected. It started with a great no pressure booking, clear instructions and excitement from the second I booked.

It was such a comfortable enjoyable day. Shank, couldn't have asked for anything better, I was hoping she would get a large one and she did, you guided her how not to lose it and netted it like a pro!! Yes she caught it, and yes I am still hearing about it.

Shank was great in answering questions and offering info, truly a great example of the type of sportsman we need to be on the water.

I would absolutely recommend Longshank for a guide, I will be in touch again!

That looked like a great time! Nice big tank wandering the deeper waters? Sweeet! That wasn't a 2nd year.. that was at least a large 3rd or 4th. I'd expect a fish like that in 100 FOW or less around that time.

was a 4 year old mature for sure and we fish differently to some extent on the south shore than you do on the north shore...gta for example


also, i rarely fish deep unless I have to. I would rather find colder water and fish there, it also usually gets me away from any crowds

that mature was caught down 37 feet
