The Story Behind the Photo

Canadian Princess Resort - May 30, 2008

Vancouver Island salmon fishingGuest Robert Brouwer wrote in with some of the story behind his fantastic photo

“The largest halibut was 29 lbs and I hooked and landed 4 halibut. My buddy's Chinook was about 20 lbs. We were fishing May 23 on the boat with the east coast captain and we were fishing 2-3 km off of Long Beach. I told everybody the trick was to keep the jig close to the bottom, bouncing it off the bottom every 4-5 jigs. Shorter jigs seemed to work.”

As you can see, the hali have arrived. If you haven’t booked your trip yet, call 1-800-663-7090 to get fishing this summer!
