Group 16 – Canadian Sport Fishing and Friends – August 5 to 8

This week was a week spent filming a national sport fishing show – Canadian Sport Fishing – with Italo Labignan and his wife, Barb. The entire trip was very interesting and the TV crew was able to get lots of great footage out on the water. Along with some help from Captain Jim, this group caught all the fish they wanted including some large Ling Cods, Halibuts, Quillbacks and of course Salmon – including a 33lb Tyee caught the second day by Jeff, on Captain Ben’s boat. Also, Italo was able to snag a huge Halibut out on the water which weighed in at a whopping 62lbs!

The entire crew was excellent to work with and it will be a great show to watch! The episode will be airing sometime in January and we will be notifying all of our customers on the exact dates.

Fishing continues to be predictive with lots of Pink Salmon, Cohos, Sockeyes and Chinooks being brought back to the dock. Also, the weather is still cooperating with calm mornings and days full of sunshine which makes for many enjoyable days spent out on the water!
