A Memorable Trip

Canadian Princess Resort - August 12, 2013

We love it when our guests visit us year after year!  Casey Keenan and her ‘partner in crime’ Greg Croft have been traveling from Bellingham, Washington to fish with the Canadian Princess Resort for several years.  According to Casey, this year’s trip was the most memorable visit yet.  She landed the Catch of the Day with a 23lbs-09oz salmon.

“It was pretty exciting and it took quite a bit of line!” said Casey.

“My favourite fishing story was when someone accidentally caught at octopus.  It managed to find a tiny space on the deck of the boat and squeeze itself through to get back into the water!” Casey told us, referring to a previous fishing trip they had been on.

Our guests Marc Saffer and Captain Richard Apple traveled across North America to fish with us last week.  Both anglers hail from Florida where Richard owns a boat, allowing the two to go fishing often.  Marc’s fishing experience showed when he reeled in his 30lbs-07oz halibut.

“I stopped fishing after I got the hali...I got one and I didn’t want to make the other’s feel bad!” Marc joked with dock staff.  “I like the weather better here this time of year, and no hurricanes!”
