Dock Talk

Afternoon bottom trip anyone?

Canadian Princess Resort - June 13, 2011

A plane lands and excited fishermen step off and onto the bus, stoked to get out for a late afternoon of fishing. The first question I ask, “Who wants to go out fishing on a late afternoon bottom trip?” If we have eight or more guests interested, it’s on.
 
We focus on rock fish during our bottom trips but it is not rare to catch salmon or halibut as well. I went down to the dock yesterday and I don’t think I’ve seen so much fish in quit some time. Some guys were tipping the scales at 60 Ibs. in fish and others were still landing 45 Ib. halibuts. It may not be in your plans and you may not know it, but our bottom trips rank right at the top along with the salmon and halibut trips.
