And what a day it’s been…dynamite fishing in most locations.
With the threat of rain and thunderstorms looming, mature Chinooks made their way into shallow water today waiting for Mother Nature to give them the signal to run our north shore rivers.
I’m afraid the result isn’t great for last nights leader Tony Bolger. Tony is one of the GOSD’s most decorated anglers and with a Top 10 position this week he will have been in the top 70 no less than 5 times since 2015.
Today belonged to the very excited 14-year-old, Parker Knowlton from Santa Barbara California. While visiting Toronto, the Knowlton family chartered WE POUND’EM SPORTFISHING with captain Ryan Hare and after a lengthy struggle off the Bluffs, Parker landed the new weekly leading 29.12 lb. Chinook.
Not too far down the Lake in Newcastle, avid female angler Michaela Goulbourne who has documented her hunt for a GOSD worthy Chinook since day 1 of #gosd18 on Instagram @fishergirl_ had her persistence pay off while fishing with Scott Richardson on SCOTTY’S SPORTFISHING. Michaela was rewarded with a 27.78 lb. mature and has found a spot on the RAYMARINE daily updates board with 1 day remaining in week 6.
If your entry was held by any of the weigh-in stations today that we’re keeping fish for random internal examinations please pick up your fish at your earliest convenience. Thank you!
