“That fish had me all over the boat!” Marvin McWhorter told Canadian Princess staff after weighing in his 24lbs-04oz salmon at the docks yesterday afternoon.
They were fishing on the Eagle Princess at South Bank, just offshore, when the salmon took the line. Despite a tangled line and a fighter on the end of it, Marvin landed his fish in less than 10 minutes. He told us he had tuckered that salmon right out!
Marvin and his family are visiting us from Los Angeles, California. He’s been fishing with the Canadian Princess Resort for 7 years running and although he’s been out in the water in California, Mexico, and Alaska, Ucluelet remains one of his favourite fishing destinations.
Congratulations Marvin for landing yesterday’s Catch of the Day! I guess we’ll be seeing you next year!
