A tad late with this my camera was lost for a bit.

Oak Bay BC Marina






Obligatory blaze-of-sunrise shots




Lovely neighbourhood




Not much for Crabs today




Common scene thereabouts




It was a long slow morning staring @ this- waiting, waiting, waiting


Dogfish aka Squalus Acanthias not what we were after


Finally in the bottom of the last inning.....








Cheeks!




Hippoglossus Stenolepis-spelled d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s






More Cheek!

Did you check them out with a Geiger counter first. The Pacific is radio active.

Nice I prefer the big bank myself but nothing wrong with those .
I think Cliffy is jealous that you are enjoying his mother gaia's bounty .

A half day early season rate is around $500-as you can see we didn't have to go far so gas expense is negligible.

Nice pictures of a beautiful place. I'm reminded somewhat of Coos Bay , Oregon. Love Halibut.

I think I might eat some fish just for the halibut.

That's not too bad. With gas hitting $1.23, it will soon be a factor.

The best part of fishing is the boat ride. The worst part is if we actually catch something. That means the fish needs to be cleaned and gutted. It also means we have fish for dinner (which for those of us not actually liking fish is not a good thing). But over all loved the experience of being on a boat dragging a line behind.

If the fish is fresh caught halibut cheeks , you will not be sad to eat them .
With a side of fresh Dungeness crab a meal to cause any mouth to water .

You never know, the vessel might flounder!

Those halibut are good eating but they do look retarded.
