It was a beautiful day out on the water, and an educational one at that! On this particular trip guests caught a Tiger rockfish and a Spotted Ratfish. For many, it was the first time seeing and learning about these species. Among these interesting catches, Alfredo Marrello landed a very impressive lingcod that weighed 27lbs-16oz. Here he is proudly holding up his trophy fish.
That lingcod was the biggest fish he caught this trip, but he also reeled in 3 other rockfish throughout the day. Alfredo and his co-workers were visiting us from Vancouver on a three day fishing trip and shared his experience with us.
“We had a very good experience and the staff and crew were very helpful,” said Alfredo. “We are going to make this an annual trip because we had a blast!”
Alfredo has done a lot of fishing along the BC coast including the Lower Mainland, Haida Gwai (Queen Charlotte Islands) and up the North Coast. His most memorable fishing moment was when he caught a 56 pound Chinook salmon on the Vedder River near Chilliwack, BC. Now that is a fish photo we would love to see!
