Smiles on the Water

Canadian Princess Resort - September 7, 2012

I saw their smiles before I even saw their fish!  I was on the water today and saw an Oak Bay Marine Group Boston Whaler Outrage in the distance.  We decided to drive over there and say hello.

We were greeted by Dave Wei and Suzanne Clouthier fishing with Skipper Dave Hunter on the Boston Whaler #3.  Dave is a popular sports fishing writer and was preparing a piece on the Canadian Princess Resort’s new Boston Whaler operation.

Yesterday he was fishing on the Long Beach Princess and landed a coho.  Today he caught 4 salmon and a Halibut out at South Bank.  He had just finished reeling in his salmon Catch of the Day when we pulled up to say hello.

It weighed in at 20lb-01oz.  His Halibut weighed 12lb-01 oz.  When we asked Dave what he will remember from his trip to Ucluelet he said, “Great weather, food, accommodations, friendly staff and a fabulous day of fishing...oh, and Ucluelet has some lovely shops, too."

As a seasoned fishermen Dave told us the story of how he once introduced the then rookie guide Dave Hunter to how easy it is to catch big fish and lots of fish in Ucluelet.  We see proof of that every day at the Canadian Princess Resort!

Thanks for fishing with us Dave!  We are looking forward to your article.

Gone Fishing,
