Fishing 2012

As mentioned a few posts ago (about the salmon shark), I was on a fishing trip about a month ago on board the Tappit out of Fair Harbour, Cap’t Dickens at the helm.  I joined friends Col and Jeff and we headed out for an epic trip to the West Coast on board this little gill netter.  It was an absolutely fabulous trip and I was welcomed on board as I brought the sunny, calm weather with me!  We had lots of fish, whales, prawns, good meals and fun times.  Here are the pics!

Salmon (shark) anyone?

I just returned from an epic adventure in Kyuquot Sound, north Vancouver Island, where my good friend Bud took me fishing on his fish boat.  I’ll do another post with some of the photos and a few details of the trip but for now, I wanted to get the video below online.  It was one of the definite highlights of the trip – Colin reeled in a salmon shark, probably about 5-6 feet long and we estimated maybe around 200-250 lbs.  It was exciting to see one so close but we were all happy when Bud got the hook out and we set him free.  Enjoy the video!
