Fishing Report – Feb 13
For most of the month of January I was doing a big upgrade on the boat. Stripped her all down and took her to Dieters Autobody in Nakusp. We beefed up the transom, and changed a few things at the back of the boat to make it better for fishing. Dieter did lots of glass work and filled in any blemishes. Then he painted it and it looks awesome!! That took a few weeks then over to Jones Boys Boats to get the pod and motor put on. Put a 300hp Yamaha on the pod, my kicker, new helm and gauges on the dash, new electronic controls, a helm at the back of the boat, and plumbed her all in. Then all we had to do was see if it would work?? Chad and I launched her and out we went. It didn’t take long for a big smile to come across my face, and it hasn’t left since. The boat performs better in every way. Smoother ride, stays on plane at slower speeds, faster, easier to drive etc etc. Oh ya, most importantly it still catches fish!!!
The crew at Jones Boys Boats did a real bang up job setting her up. If your interested in repowering your old boat I would highly recommend them!! Was out fishing the last week, and it’s been ok. Been mostly bull trout, but some nice fat ones. Lyman plugs have been working best for me in the top 30 ft. About 90% booked for salmon/ halibut fishing in Ucluelet this summer. If your wanting to experience this fantastic fishery drop me a line soon. All forcasts are pointing to great returns of fish. Now that the boat work is done I’m looking forward to getting back out fishing!! Hope you can join me soon!
