Fishing records, awards, and trophies are important for anglers to showcase their greatest achievements and deserved “Bragging Rights”. This FishinBC.COM page is dedicated to showcase the top fishing records, achievements, and angler recognition awarded over the years. Fishing Records include the Halibelt Champion Award, the Tyee Club Award, the IronCod Status Award, and the Keystone Always Smooth Moment of the Trip.
The title of Halibelt Champion is awarded to the angler holding the boat record for largest halibut. The trophy design originated in 2010 while vacuum sealing our halibut fillets the packaging began to curve and the white face of the halibut skin resembled a championship UFC style belt. The Halibelt Champion trophy was born!
2011 – Oak – 104lb Halibut
2010 – Neal – 74lb Halibut
The Tyee Club is a designation awarded to angers who succesfully land a Chinook salmon (King Salmon) that weighs in at 30 pounds or more. Chinook salmon can grow as large as 100lbs although the vast majorty are in the 20-30lb range. Chinook over 30 pounds are therefore considered noteworthy and considered Tyees. Fish over 50lbs are much more rare and anything in the 70-100lb range is the upper percentage of the population.
2010 Brian (62 pound chinook salmon)
2001 Ryan (60 pound chinook salmon)
2010 Neal (42 pound chinook salmon)
2008 Brian (38 pound chinook salmon)
2013 Ryan O (32 pound chinook salmon)
2011 Ian (32 pound chinook salmon)
2008 Ryan (32 pound chinook salmon)
The IronCod Status award was developed in 2012 following an inpressive streak of successfully landing cod on every single day of the trip. It was first awarded to Travis in 2012 who accomplished the feat and also caught the biggest lings of the trip and we deemed him additional recognition as “The Codfather”.
2012 – Travis
The Keystone Always Smooth moment of the trip trophy was developed as a spouf to acknowledge some event on the trip worthy of memorializing. There is always something comical that happens and we’ll bring forth our nominations year over year.
2013 – Ryan – Awarded for catching and recovering Oak’s lost fishing gear at the halibut grounds.
2012 – Neal – Awarded for consuming smoky that fell in the campfire despite the significant sand grit and ash stuck to it.
