First Tyee of the Season Arrives at Rodgers
A beautiful 40 pound Tyee was the first Tyee of the season to hit our docks and what a nice way to start the Tyee season. Hopefully, we will be seeing many more of these prized salmon in the weeks ahead. This is supposed to be a year when we will be seeing a lot of 4 and 5 years olds which means we should be seeing a lot of Chinook in the 30 to 45 pound range. To start off with a 40 pounder is certainly a good sign of good things to come.
May and June have been exceptional months for bottom fish. We have seen more Ling Cod over 35 pounds so far this season than we have ever seen before. The guides tell me that they have discovered a new Ling Cod/ Halibut hole offshore, where catching these delicious eating fish is almost automatic.
We are having another really good season but don’t just take my word for it. Check out what some of our recent guests have had to say about their visits to Rodgers. As one of our June guests from Mississip- pi said to me, ” The greatest compliment that you can give is a referral,” and TripAdvisor reviews are a nice way to give us a referral. It is surprising how
many people read these reviews and make their decision to fish with us, based on the experiences of what other guests have to say about us. Normally, a Hotel or Restau- rant is rated on one or two aspects of their business. In our business, we can be rated on many different things, from the quality of our boats, guides, accommodations, food, staff, fishing, water conditions etc., which sets us apart from most businesses that are rated on TripAdvisor. These TripAdvisor ratings can make or break a small business like ours and we certainly appreciate our guests taking the time to let other folks know about their fishing experiences at Rodgers.
We are getting closer to our Tuna fishing season and we have bought several new beautiful offshore tuna boats that are in the 28′ to 32′ range and that will be an ideal fishing platform for this type of fast moving fishery. Albacore Tuna are still classed as a commercial fish, so by Sports- fishing standards the limits are a bit crazy. Each angler is allowed 20 Tuna a day and a possession limit of 40. This fast moving fish with speeds up to 30 miles an hour, averages about 20 pounds. The best day that we have ever had on Tuna we had 185 on our dock. We are offering a 4 night / 5 day Combo Salmon/ Tuna / Halibut pack- age so let me know if you would like to get in on this exciting action?View the pdf report
