Early Bird Gets the Worm!

Canadian Princess Resort - June 8, 2013

This week ended off with some great weather.  The winds held off until later in the afternoons, allowing for ideal offshore conditions during the early morning hours.  As they say ‘the early bird gets the worm’ or the early angler gets the salmon!

That was the case for Jim Glover who reeled in a 12lbs-3oz salmon with Skipper Don on the Coho Princess.  Jim is visiting us from Friday Harbour in the San Juan Islands.

“I have been fishing most of my life and have fished all over Canada,” said Jim, sharing that he has also fished in Alaska, Hawaii, and Mexico.

“I like Ucluelet a lot and I like Canada the best for fishing.”  Jim laughs, “Also, it is the easiest to get to!”

While Jim was fishing on the Coho Princess a Canadian Princess Resort staff fishing trip was out too.  Our staff member Megan Burns caught this 12lbs beauty.  Way to go!

The day before, Casey Beal landed the Catch of the Day aboard the Chinook Princess.  His Chinook salmon weighed 14lbs-02oz.  Casey and his wife enjoyed their first fishing trip in Ucluelet, commenting on the beautiful coastal scenery and wildlife sightings.   Their total catch included salmon, rock fish, and ling cod.
