We had our friends Jesse Dorman, Heather Iverson, and Russell & Rachelle McMann out on Friday August 23, 2013 for a day of fishing and fun! The morning started off slow out at 12 mile, but the afternoon at Big Bank proved to be successful as usual. After catching 5 Chinook and 2 Coho Salmon, we dropped the gear down to the bottom to troll for halibut. We thought landing a 35 pound halibut was the perfect end to our day, but crossing paths with this beautiful Humpback whale on the way back to shore truly topped the day off.
We had a fantastic day with the Faber family, who came to fish the West coast all the way from Saskatchewan last Thursday. We fished the shallows of Big Bank, off the coast of Ucluelet, BC with great success! These folks went home with a total of 10 spring salmon and 6 halibut. We can’t wait to fish with them again next year!
