Fishing in Canada, May/June 2017

Eww. Gory one to start with.
 Sorry I didn't get these all rotated to upright positions.
Mike and two friends drove to Vancouver, British Columbia to go fishing and had a BLAST. Ron LeFevre and his son, Kent, went with Mike. They caught a lot of fish.  Halibut, salmon, cod, rock fish and snapper.  I think.  Yummy. We've only had Halibut and Salmon so far, but I'm sure it's all going to be good.   They drove all the way there and all the way back, stayed with the "Serengeti" folks who chartered their fishing excursions and took very good care of them all. I think Mike said the total haul of what they kept (gross weight ) was 700 pounds. They reeled in some biggies (like over 200,) but had to release them.  They fished on Monday, May 31, Tuesday June 1 and Wednesday June 2 and then headed home, driving almost straight through with their coolers full of frozen fishies.

Mike was glad he got to go and I was glad to get him home so he could finish my laundry room and fix (repair/replace) the hot water heater which had gone out while he was gone. But I had just left right after him to head to Katie's, so it was Eric who had to deal with cold water. Poor kid.  Good thing he could handle it. :-)
