Easter weekend saw the first wave of the start of the 2011 season. Customers from Vancouver, Alberta, Seattle, Victoria, locals and others enjoyed that first adrenalin rush of “FISH ON!’
Halibut, Ling Cod and Prawns dominated the catch but the first salmon also hit the cleaning tables. Cecil Ballard from Victoria tops the salmon board with a 24 pound Chinook. Monty Bloomberg from Estevan Saskatchewan topped the halibut with a 67 pounder and Trevor Walkom brought in a 37 pound Ling Cod! There were also great tides for harvesting oysters and clams which are in huge supply this spring.

"Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. H e said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. To my surprise, he responded to my caress, and we made love. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep - I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster."
"Boat wouldn't start, can't figure it out, at least I got laid."
