Port Renfrew Marina Report May.2/12

Port Renfrew Marina is now open for the season. We got off to our usual start with phone, internet and ATM issues! It just wouldn't be the new year without those!! The phones seem to be ok, there is a long delay and occasional breaking up though. The ATM is in the process of being fixed and will likely be up and running very soon, likely in a day or so. We apologize for the inconveniences these things cause our customers and others just trying to make inquiries. Fishing at Port Renfrew is coming on, there are springs being caught but they are on the small side, 8 to 14 pounds. They have been caught mostly near Owen Point. Halibut fishing has been very good with limit catches and some on the bigger side, rough weather has been a bit of a problem some days. Crabbing is still quiet, should improve soon. The picture below is of Desi Hatchard of http://www.viciousfishcharters.com/ as mentioned in the last report of the 160 halibut (and others).

 Desi 160 2012Now that the marina is open for the season it is imperative that all previous seasonal customers contact us regarding their sites and moorage in order to not loose it. We have many new people asking and we want to give our old customers first chance to keep their spots. You can email us through the website or call 250 483-1878 to let us know.

For any new customers a reminder to them and all that we are a cash only business so please come prepared. You can use our ATM machine to access cash if needed. We now have bait, tackle, fuel and ice at the marina. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to answer what we can.
