Drury Inlet/ Davis Bay, Kim's 16 lb King, Sointula 8/23-26/2010
Next morning we went to Davis Bay and spent a uneventful anchorage. On the way Gary got a call on the radio that the Salmon were hot at James Point so the next morning, we all (Noon Balloon, Sea Jay, Lerado and Big Sky) moved to an anchorage near Dickson Island and went fishing . Kim Nance and I went fishing the next morning and she caught a beautiful 16 pound King/Spring Salmon. What a fight it made, running three times before we could bring it aboard. This is a cool anchorage as you can run up a narrow cut in Broughton Island and get all the way to Greenway Sound. Next day with Big Sky we headed to Sointula a Finish village on Malcome Island just to see what it was like. Noon Baloon headed for Booker Lagoon and Lerado started to head south. The marina at Sointula is mostly for fishing boats but we decided to check it out. The people are very friendly and I borrowed a bicycle from the marina and road into town where I met the rest of the gang for lunch. The next morning Big Sky went to Port McNeil for supplies and we decided to stay another night at Sointula before heading south to Port Harvey.
