Default Langara Lodge Fishing Trip *VIDEO*

Well I went on a trip to Langara Lodge over the September long weekend. All I can say was wow what an amazing trip the fishing was out of this world and the food was some of the best I've ever had. The weather was nice for a few days which was nice as I expected the big waves which we got for a couple days as well. This was my first time fishing with the mooching set up. Defiantly lost a few fish at the start that were my fault and lost a little skin off my knuckles but all in all what a fun way to catch fish! If you haven't been to this lodge I highly recommend it as I will defiantly be back one day.

Yes quite a place indeed, been there done that. Caught my personal best Hali 174 lbs 6’2”, Coho 14 lbs 12 oz, And 37 lb Spring all on same trip few years back. Not going back now though as much as I would like too. Fukushima is polluting the Pacific really bad and I’m off Pacific seafood entirely because of it. A lot of Salmon migrate over that way before returning to the coast and bottom fish are particularly susceptible. Nobody knows really how bad it is and until they do I only eat what I catch in our inland freshwaters. Blue fins have also been getting tested and are showing higher levels of radiation in their meat. Everything from Prawns to Whales are now contaminated. I certainly wouldn’t let anyone of child bearing age or children eat anything out of the Pacific but thats just me. If you consume any Strontium your body absorbs it like calcium and stores it in your bones. This can be passed through your family tree for the next 50 generations. Maybe there is something a little more to how some Lingcod glow with a green colour up on the dock lol!

Defiantly going to have to get some mooching gear and use it for lake trout in Cold Lake next summer.

That was a fun trip.

Looking forward to 2018!

You should try self guided next time. It is very rewarding catching your own fish.

I've caught salmon in the deep. I've caught them on the wall, but the absolute most fun I've had was catching them in the weeds in shallow water with mooching tackle. Just like targeting big pike in the weeds. Then having them bust out of there for deeper water.
