Vancouver Island Fishing Update

Canadian Princess Resort - August 12, 2008

Fish has picked up over the last week, and halibut and Ling cod are especially strong. On one of yesterday's bottom fishing trips, a guest hooked in to a massive halibut. It was so big that it bent both of the gaffs on the boat. Despite playing the fish for three hours our intrepid crew were unable to get the fish in the boat. Our best guess is that it weighed about 150 lbs.

Salmon are picking up in numbers and size. As we move in to the fall the salmon are going to get bigger and more abundant.
