New May Madness Chinook Record!

Canadian Princess Resort - May 9, 2006

Halibut fishing on Vancouver IslandIt was another beautiful, sunny day out on the west coast of Vancouver Island today. Lately, the winds have been a bit challenging… a challenge we accept.

Today, for example, Vincent Cheung, of Vancouver, B.C., hauled in a 44 pound halibut, almost reaching the standing record for May.

Yesterday, Aaron Heath, of Coquitlam, B.C., brought in a 19 pound Chinook, beating the previous record of 16 pounds and earning the lead spot in the May Madness Derby!

So the weights for the May Madness Derby as are follows:

  • Halibut - 45 pounds
  • Chinook - 19 pounds

There is plenty of time left to go in May, and many, MANY, fish left to be caught.

They are waiting for you!
