Dock Talk

The derby has begun

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - May 15, 2008

We had our biggest fishing tide of the year with 29 boats out. They’re still on the water as I write this, but we are anticipating several nice Chinook being brought to the dock.

On May 12th the Spring2 Salmon Fishing Derby started.

It runs till June 13th, and there are some exciting prizes. Each day the guest with the largest Chinook of the day gets BC Coastal Grilling Planks made of 100% natural Cedar, ideal for cooking your catch on (plus bragging rights for having the biggest fish of the day!).


As for the grand prizes, the 1st prize is a trip to the M.V. Marabell in the Queen Charlotte Islands, 2nd prize is a fishing package to Painter’s lodge with a $500 meal credit, and 3rd prize is a fishing package to the Canadian Princess Resort in Ucluelet.

Every person fishing between May 12th and June 13th is automatically entered into the derby. So come on up and give it a try.

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