Port Renfrew Marina has now been open for nearly a week. In that time we have been busy with many returning customers and also many new ones. With the "renovations" that have been done luckily we have a few new sites which have already been filled. If you are a returning customer from last year or longer please contact us immediately if you have not done so yet and let us know if you are returning. Every day we are getting inquiries from people wanting to grab a site for the season and we need to know if any on the old sites are available. Although we have always held sites until May 15th it would be very helpful to know as soon as possible. When you do come to the marina to set up please make sure you come in to the office and let us know of your arrival and then we can activate your power if your site has it.
For fishing, there is not much happening on the salmon front yet but halibut fishing is quite good and crabbing is excellent as it always is in the early part of the season. They are beautiful, large, sweet and plentiful. As we have said in the past for best results use a solid trap that sits on the bottom without swaying or moving so the crab are not spooked by it. We have bait at the office and will be getting ice this coming week. We also have fuel and are going to do our best to keep prices as fair as possible.
We want to shout out a huge thank you to Odd Johansen, Dwayne Issac and Mike Game for helping us get the docks back in and tied up for the season. We were lucky to have good weather that day and things went well. These guys help out each year and are always available for helping when it is needed.
