Beautiful week in paradise

Canadian Princess Resort - June 18, 2007

Vancouver Island fishingWell, it's been another beautiful week in paradise up here at the Canadian Princess and fishing couldn't be better.

We've had quite a number of Springs coming in and two of our boats were very close to there limit the other day.

Coho have also been on the rise for the past week with a significant number of catch and release, due to them being wild, but also a fair number of hatchery Coho kept.

Halibut has started to slow down slightly but they'll be back near the end of our season.

Here are some of our catches-of-the-day…
