The One That Did Not Count

Canadian Princess Resort - June 8, 2012

The first plane of the season arrived yesterday and all were in good cheer, excitedly awaiting a good day of fishing in the morning.  Of course a bad day fishing (not that there is such a thing) is better than almost any day doing anything else.

So, for those of you who don’t want to pony up the $10.00 a day to support salmon enhancement and a chance to win big money and bragging rights, here is a cautionary tale.

The beautiful fish you see here is a 28lb salmon that would have been the lead fish for June and although it may not have held first all month it would have had a good chance of cashing and definitely would have qualified for the fish off and our $99.00 per day “fish and stay” fish off special.  Oh what could have been!

The season is in full swing now with am., all day, pm., and an afternoon bottom fish boat heading out.

That’s all for today from sunny Ucluelet!

Cheers,
