"It was the battle of the giants!" laughed dock staff after weighing in yesterdays Catch of the Day.
There’s nothing wrong with some good healthy competition. There was plenty of that aboard the Coho Princess yesterday, with a little encouragement from the deck hand and Skipper Don I’m sure! John Wilson, who had already landed the previous day’s Catch of the Day with a 15lbs-09oz Chinook salmon, was setting out to bring in the same, or bigger. He did manage to boat a 15lbs-02oz salmon on this trip, but it wasn’t big enough to claim the title.
Andy Hawryluk, also fishing on the Coho Princess, was able to beat John's fish and the Catch of the Day for salmon caught on a Delta Cruiser went to Andy that day. His beautiful fish weighed 15lbs-06oz. Congratulations!
John Parker was trolling through Barkley Sound on a Boston Whaler Outrage charter when he caught his 16lbs-01oz fish. Get more information on booking your personalized fishing trip on a Boston Whaler Outrage.
It is a gorgeous sunny day today in Ucluelet. All six Delta Cruisers went out this morning as well as a Whaler charter. We had 85 fishing guests in total! We will get the report on how they did as soon as we can retrieve all the details. In the meantime, these happy anglers are enjoying the warm sunshine and a cold drink on the deck of the Canadian Princess outside the Chart Room Lounge. I can’t think of a better place to re-cap fishing stories and relax after another exciting morning out on the water.
Summer officially started yesterday and so far...it’s been amazing.
