Dock Talk

Vancouver Island Update

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - June 10, 2008

Wow! The fish cleaning table was busy this week. We’ve had numerous beauties brought to the dock, with fish ranging from 7 lbs to 22 lbs. Josh Tancock holds the record so far with a 22 lb. Chinook, and Steve Starko is second with a 19 ½ lb. Chinook.

Our wildlife tours have been seeing bears regularly. Yesterday they spotted two black bears combing the beach. On Sunday they got to see one of the “cinnamon bears,” a black bear with a cinnamon brown color. This one was actually a nice mix of black and cinnamon. There are tons and tons of Dalh’s porpoises, who are always a fun treat as they are extremely playful and entertaining.

The Spring Spring Derby is coming to an end. The last day is the 12th, so come on up and give it a try!

The 16th annual Women’s Derby is this weekend. It’s going to be a blast. These ladies really know how to fish!

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