Dock Talk

The bite goes on...

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - June 15, 2009

Spring Fling fishing derby winner Robert MyringThe Spring Fling Derby is officially over. Congrats Robert Myring who won the derby by a long shot with his 33 lb. Tyee. I hope you enjoy your prize, a trip to our northern BC fishing resorts!

David Nylund won second prize with a 29.6 lb. Chinook, and Lawerence Eade nabbed third place is a 29.5 pounder.

Derby or not, the bite goes on…the dock was full of 20 pound Chinook this weekend, and even another Tyee. David Nylund brought in a beautiful 30 pounder. Every boat that went out last night caught a fish, and our fish catch log is filling up!

The wildlife tours have been fantastic. They’ve been seeing humpbacks, loads of porpoises, tons of bears and thousands of eagles. They spotted a cinnamon bear on the beach the other day and watched him comb the beach for a snack. The humpback is always a treat to watch, as we don’t get to see one of the those everyday.

The Wine and Cheese tours have been going out regularly, too. Drinks, appetizers, ocean breeze and a beautiful sunset, could you think of a more perfect way to end the day?

That’s all for today, thanks for checkin’ in. Hope you have a wonderful day.
