Getting ready for some fishing
Its May although the past weeks weather it feels more like the end of July with temperatures in the mid 20 C. The fishing season is just around the corner for Trailhead Resort crew. This past weekend at the Trailhead Resort the staff were busy getting the boats ready for the up coming 2013 fishing season making sure everything is in ship shape. The Connie Francis has just been re-powered with twin 300 hp Yamaha's and a new 25 hp kicker. The Hovenator has had a minor refit as well and is all good to go. Early fishing reports off Port Renfrew has been good. Halibut fishing is off to a good start with good catches being reported. Chinook and coho salmon are out at the Swiftsure Bank and the Chinooks are starting show on the beach with salmon up to 30 pounds reported already. There is no size restriction for Chinooks in Port Renfrew. The Trailhead boats are heading out this weekend for our first charters of the season so there will be more to report next week. Until next time keep your rod tip up and if you are thinking about fishing Port Renfrew then Trailhead Resort is the place you want to be. Tight lines.
