Port Renfrew Marina will be opening offically on May 1st but we will be there from April 27th. All past seasonal customers should be contacting us to let us know if they are returning and want to keep their spots. We have many new customers making inquiries regarding seasonal spots so please make sure you contact us as soon as possible. By May 10th your spot will be considered given up. By this weekend we will have gas and diesel fuel available and bait. Ice will be coming shortly. We will have tackle also. Fishing for salmon has been good this past month and has slowed down slightly. Crabbing which is usually fantastic now is slow. We are hoping that changes very soon! Halibut fishing is very good with limit catches. Desi Hatchard of Vicious Fish Charters brought in a catch of 4 halibut with one weighing in at 160 pounds! Picture hopefully for the next posting.
This year Knut will be here again working for us and our caretakers Wayne & Gwen Coleman. We want to thank them for doing such a great job of keeping an eye on the marina for the winter months and getting busy cleaning things up for the spring and opening. They have been hard at work as usual! Can't keep them sitting around long! We look forward to seeing our return customers and meeting our new ones and hope we all have a safe and fun season with great fishing and even better fish stories!
Bud & Rex
