Bottom Fishing Bliss

Canadian Princess Resort - June 17, 2013

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!
