Howdy Jamie good to hear from you. Been wondering about you and how the Lodge buisness has been going. How was your past summer full tubs and tight lines I hope.

How is your spring Hali season going or do you run a spring season. If you do lets see some pics of those big flatties !!

Walleyes, great to hear from you again as well.

No we don't run a a Spring season, we open to the Public June 1. However the fishing can be great in May around Prince Rupert. To me, I find it more of a Trophy hunt for HUGE Salmon than a fill the freezer type of trip.
Let me find some photos from last year.

The Lodge did very well for it's first season. We received plenty of press and are on Wild TV tonight (8:30 PM Outdoor Quest)
I am really looking forward to getting back out there. Our bookings are already over what we did last year and the phone keeps ringing.
It's nice being the ONLY Salmon Lodge in Prince Rupert.
Here are a few pics from last year

Guys, though I own Great Pacific Salmon Lodge, I love talking about Salmon.. Any time, any place.

If your heading out anyplace on the coast this summer, post it up. If you have any questions about the different places, go ahead and ask.

I don't care if your going with another Lodge, Self guided or are just interested. What ever I can do to help, I will.

Take care
Jamie

Some dandies there Jamie..

That Hali must go right around 110# and I would put that last Chinook in at about 42# ??  Slabs for sure..

Thx for tickling the appetite.

We hope to head out to Tofino this summer,, hope is the word. With the new house build it may be tough but we will sure try. I missed out last summer do to the fact we were shut down at work for little over 4 months so I wasn't able to take time off in Aug. But Lord willing this year I will be back out there getting at em..

Oh I'll definetly make it up there,, more than once thats for sure. Over the next couple years I hope to start to be able to take it a bit easier at work and start to enjoy things a bit more. A guy isn't getting any younger you know I have to start doing a few things I have been planning on for a long time now an Rupert is definetly one of those things.

Caught the show last night,, if it wasn't for your post I wouldn't have,, I just can't stand watching that man. Looks like you guys have a first rate place there Jamie thats awesome. I watched Big Coast then your spot back to back talk about driving a guy mad or what lol..

Again loved the show just to bad it had to be that ass hole in it. Someone should tell him he holds a slamon rod like a women, for a guy that supposedly has as much fishing experience as he does you would think he would be more comforatble with it.

Walleyes, thanks for watching and the kind comments about our company.

We did a ton of work on that place and though the show doesn't feature the Lodge as much, you can check out some pics here.
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v718/JamieHunt/Salmon%20fishing%202011/
There are 4 pages of pics on that link.

Building Great Pacific Salmon Lodge has been a fantastic trip. We have only just started and have a stated goal of being the best Salmon Lodge on the coast.

Perhaps one day we will see you out there.

For those that missed it, it will be shown a few more times this week. Check out wild TV / Outdoor quest for times in your area.

Take care
Jamie

Heres a  question for ya Jamie.. Whats the secret ingredient besides Bonamine and Gravol to keep guys like myself from getting motion sickness on the Big Water ? I love to fish and catch salmon, just dont enjoy the part of hanging my head over the edge of the Boat...Seems whenever i go out we get big rollers to deal with.

Thanks.

Springer, from a Bluenoser who done alot of fishing off the coast of N.S. in his younger year, it is unlikely you will get sea sick on a calm day. If you are prone to seasickness don't go out in a swell or rough water.

There isn't a whole lot you can do other than take a couple of gravol before the trip. If you do get sick and start heavin, don't look at the movement of the water. Eat some dry crackers and go down below until your stomach stops turning.
You'll be tooo busy catchin salmon to get sick.....lol

Thanks Tuc. The issue for not going is if we book a trip and the days are set and the water is turbulent , i guess its head out and hope for the best.
What i dont like about Gravol is i get so damn tired. The patch behind the ear seems to work the best ,only side effect is vision gets a little blurry but still beats chummin the water.
I have also done better closer to land and can see the horizon , the halibut fishing 25kms off shore is what causes problems.

Springer, another thing I forgot to mention was, some people only get seasick once and thats it.

Growing up in Ketch Harbour N.S. we lived on the ocean, my old man was a lobster fisherman and we also fished the shoals in Cape Islanders for everything from cod fish to pollock.
Halibut are deep sea fish and naturally are found a little further from shore. The reason you do better when you can see land is it gives you a solid focal point instead of looking at waves in motion. I was about 17 when I got sea sick for my first and only time. We were coming back from Halifax Harbour on a sword fisher after selling a load of swordfish. As we approached Ketch Harbour a storm brewed and the water began to swell. I remember standing on the deck watching the waves come up over the bow of the boat and damn near wash you off the deck. I could feel it coming on and finally I started heavin. Couldn't stop so Bernie Gray (boats skipper) sent me down below and told me to grab so crackers out of the cupboard and eat them. The crackers stopped the heaves, settled my stomach down and soon we were around the point and into the harbour away from open sea. The waters calmed and by the time we pulled up alongside the government wharf I was fine.
