Default Buoy 10 guide?

I'm getting married next month, and while the family is out I thought I'd kill two birds..eh, salmon with one stone by booking a guided buoy 10 trip so the out-of-towners can get some real NW experience in, while I can learn the ins and outs of this fishery before taking my own boat on that big water.

First off, I'd like someone who's not going to drop the "N" bomb in the middle of the trip like the last guide I hired. Second, I want to LEARN...not just bring home fish. I already have gear, a boat, and fish the Portland area Columbia so I'd really like a guide that is going to be liberal with the tips/info, etc. I'd also like to keep eggs from any hens caught.

Any suggestions? The date I'm looking for is either 8/16 or 8/17.

All the Ifish guides are pretty good recommendations.

ifish has a list of sponsor guides, Fishermans, another ifish sponsor, has a long list of "Pro-Staff" guides. All of their phone numbers are listed. You had better get busy with the phone calls. It's getting late and you do have a lot of conditions you want to talk about. Not sure what an "N" bomb is but good luck with it.

Paulages,
Congratulations and cheers to your upcoming marriage! You are a lucky man for your wife is allowing you to spend time in Astoria during the best time of year.

I think that you may have some high expectations for a single trip. One of the guides that I go with is pretty awesome about all of the things that are on your list and then some... but I've been going with him for the past three years on probably a dozen or so trips (just guessing). The guide/client relationship can should be reciprical, mutually benefitial, and equally enriching. This usually doesn't occur with just a single trip.

There are a lot of great guides that can catch fish, and that is their primary job (having a great time should be a given). But tempering your expectations, especially during the peak of Buoy 10 season, might go a long way with what you hope to glean from future trips.

I would make a suggestion, but most of all the guides that I know of have been completely booked since the beginning of July. Good Luck!

Cut Plug is right, all guides are good out there. I personally use Ian Premo as we have had success every year.

Dave Johnson is a good choice. Brian Campbell a.k.a. Soup and terry mulkey are also good choices.

In our boat the the rule is eggs stay in the boat.

Grant Scheele sent me an email a few days ago and indicated he still had a few Buoy 10 seats available. I have fished with him at 10 successfully as well as several other locations.

My first open date is the 18th. The group that has the 17th may be persuaded into trading for the 18th. Let me know if you want me to ask them.

Thanks, Grant

Darren Hoberg, he may very well be booked solid these days.

However I do know he has some openings left for the remainder of the season, he limited the boat every day last season for kings. From an onlookers perspective, Darren has got this fishery dialed!!! Check him out

Take advantage of this one! Grant is a blast to fish with.

I have to say Ian Premo. A buddy and I went 9/11 for springers on the Clack last month. The Clack, springers and I don't get along and I had no luck up until that point.

All of the above guides run great trips down there. Steve Lynard and Jerre Munson would be my votes. Just great people to fish with!

Definitely check to see if Joe Salvey has any openings. He is a blast to be with out there and has been known to catch a fish or two while out there as well

Below the radar, local guy, availability (lives in Astoria, family members are commercial and sport fishermen, fished there his whole life, just started guiding last year):

Dave Hessel
Pelican Guide Service

This is his place. Has web page I believe, probably can google it. I fished with Dave and his dad recently with my son for sturgeon while it was still open: Twice we had doulbes with sturgeon. Big fish down there, half hooked were oversize, son kept one just below max size.

I ended up going with Steve Johnson (Walleye guy), and he lined up Kyle hall for the second boat. I'd highly recommend both, as they really worked their asses off to find us fish, and Steve was a champ dealing with my difficult family. Thanks, guys!

In the future the Greek is a great guy and will show you quite a bit. No big secret down there just a flasher and good bait cut right and 35 feet out. Find a guide and follow him.
