Girls Fishing Trip

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

We woke up at 5:30 in the morning on the day of our fishing trip, departing from Sonora Resort. The day before was action-packed for my sister and I so we were looking forward to getting out on the ocean for 4 hours of fishing (which translates to 4 hours of talking, hanging out, and eating snacks).

Our guide for the day was Kaitlyn, a knowledgeable fishing wonder woman who helped us learn the basics. Out on the water, us three girls had a great time as the sun rose, the fog lifted, and other boats (filled with testosterone) passed on by.

My sister had a great big fish on her line, which we referred to as “the one that got away” for the rest of the trip since the line snapped on us. We were a bit quicker to the next bite although when I reeled it in we had to release it since it was a wild Coho Salmon.

Despite only having a few nibbles, we did see some great action out on the water. The boat was lovely, our guide was great (and also went to school in Surrey – go figure) and we had some great fishing trip “bonding moments” to boot. I also enjoyed taking photos of the scenery, of which I’ll never tire.

Good morning

    Beautiful scenery, makes me miss BC so much. Can’t wait to get back there, for good.

    Those are beautiful pictures. May I ask you what camera you are using? I am thinking of getting a good camera for scenery.

    Beautiful photographs. I am also interested (like ubringliten) in the camera you are using – because all the pictures you have posted are very clear and have fantastic resolution. Not to forget that you do have a very nice eye for pictures .
    But ,,, no pictures of the fish you guys caught ?????
