    Thanks. Was an epic trip. Bummer part was the day we caught 11 fish my damn video camera battery had died so missed out on some other good footage. Will have to get back to you on the length and girth as it is written down in my fishing log book that is on the boat. By far the biggest fish I have caught and felt good to get good video before the release.

    What type of range do you have on your boat? I went up to Port Hardy a few years ago. Every morning when we were hitting the usual spots around Hardy, a line of charters would make a bee-line past Duval and up to the North Coast of VCI. Cape or Pt. Avill I think.

    Plenty of great fishing around Hardy, but I would make the run up there for EPIC fishing. Either that or Winter Harbour, if your going for slabs...I know of a great lodge at WH that will let you take your boat...just pay for lodging/moorage....they will put you on the fish.....Knutson's are great people...fished many times with them...

    Thanks Erik, not a bad deal at Winter Harbor with "bring your own boat". $450 a person staying at the lodge 3 nights doesn't sound bad.

    Damn it Gabe. If 2018 fishing @RI is crappy I am blaming you and Sponge Bob for not releasing all your 2014 fish to spawn

    Consider Bamfield and Barkley Sound. Good mix of inside protected water if it's snotty and offshore banks if it's not. That plus awesome halibut and bottom fish. I would NOT do the crossing from Neah in your boat loaded with camping gear and extra weight.

    We were a heavy lean not to do that crossing, probably not an option anymore.

    For gods sake don’t tell them you have 300 # of beer. Technically you are only allowed 1 case each or 1.14 L of hard each going into Canada. Might want to brush up on food stuff allowed in as well. Not knowing the rules could F up a trip quickly. Don't worry beer is cheap in Canada.







    Not!

    I believe that is for your duty free amount. Think you can take as much beer/ alcohol as you want but you could be subject to paying the duty. I always tell them what I have: i.e. two half gallons and four cases of beer for the week. So far they have just said have a good day. Figure honesty is the best policy at the border.

    :cheers: Big Jameson Bottle.JPG I read the part about one bottle of hard liquor ( Jameson in this instance) apiece, but might have missed the size specification...... FYI, the Crown bottles above are the 750 ml size, which are larger than the US 1/5th....

    Fred- Thanks for the correction! Always glad to be wrong when it means that I am getting more than I think!!! Also, 10-4 on the need to get together and help reduce the weight in that big bottle!

    Crown was cheaper up there than down here last summer. The beer prices killed me though!
