Hundreds of Guests, Thousands of Fish, A Million Smiles
Colin, Katie & Drew Baird Feb 12, 2009 4hr charter
My guests Colin, Katie & Drew were visiting from St. John's, Newfoundland for their first fishing trip to Tofino. The weather was sunny but cool and the ocean was a bit choppy so we decided to try our luck fishing for salmon close to shore and ease our way out to sea. We weren't disappointed when Katie fought and landed a 9lb (hatchery) Chinook. We trolled for about an hour and then changed fishing techniques, looking to catch some bottomfish for young Drew to wind in. Our luck continued as Colin caught a Chinook salmon on his jig and both Drew and mom Katie all got in on the action. The wind started to blow making the fishing difficult so it was time to go in.
