With each passing day, the boys pursued to hunt for the BIG one. Dave had already surpassed his goal for the trip, landing a 6’6 and a nice 6’7 Canyon Sturgeon as well . As for Pete, an avid angler from the age of 5, he desperately kept seeking his monster sturgeon. On the last and final day of the trip, the guys headed up to the Fraser Canyon, for one last hoo-ra in the hopes of finding a big fish. With only 2 hours to go in the day and a red-eye flight to catch that night, Dave decided to take a quick “siesta” and handed over his rod responsibilities to Pete. Music to his ears, Pete eagerly reeled up the Rod in the #1 position and changed up the baits and no more than 10 minutes later, a big fish was on. The fish exploded right out of the water 3 times, and then decided to head down stream. After a 20 minute battle of heavy pulling, the boys were able to beach a trophy 8’11 with a girth of 44 inches. Couldn’t have scripted a better ending to this trip!
Well done fellas, you deserve it. Looking forward to doing it again in 2013!
