First Salmon of the Trip

As we leave Eucott Bay we motor close to a ribbon waterfall cascading down from thousands of feet above.

When we arrive at Shearwater it is around noon time. Shearwater was originally built as an antisubmarine bomber reconnaissance post in 1941 and then abandoned in 1944. It was then purchased and developed into a fishing resort with a full-service marina, restaurant, and hotel. It will be a quick stop for us as we just need diesel, and a few supplies before moving on up the inside passage.

After leaving Shearwater we decided to do some bottom fishing on the rocks that are just southeast of Bush Point, as you can see from the chart plotter there is a 44-foot shallow spot we are going to drift across and try to catch some bottom fish.

Rod has a nibble on his pole.

It doesn’t take to long to catch a couple of rockfish.
With fish in the bucket, we head for Mouat, Cove where we anchor for the night.

On Day 2 I fly the drone while waiting for the tide to change so we can go salmon fishing
With salmon now on board for dinner, we head north past the Ivory Island lighthouse, which was built in 1898.
We anchor for the night in Nowish Cove.
