Spring 2018 Newsletter Joke!
I recently spent $6,500 on a young registered Hereford bull. I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow.
I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyhow, I had the Vet come and have a look at him.
He said the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day.
The bull started to service the cows within two days, all my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the Vet gave him ...........
But they kind of taste like peppermint.
2018 May Fishing/Catching May be the Best Ever!
Why? Halibut, Ling Cod and other Bottom fish have moved close inshore to feed on the huge schools of spawning Herring & Candle fish. These fish will remain on shore until mid-June. Many Salmon also move into these feeding grounds in May. In Nootka Sound Maquinna Pt., Beano Creek and the seaward side of the Spanish Island group are all holding fish. In Esperanza Inlet Outer Black Rock to Obstruction Reef, Nuchatlitz, Rosa Harbour and the world Famous Ferrer Point are all Good bets for HOOKING UP! FISH ON!!!
The month of May has always been one of the locals secrets!
Over the past two seasons (2016 & 2017) the catching in May has really picked up pace. The likely increase in Catching is related to the closure of the Commercial Herring Fishery in our area since 2015. This closure has no doubt also positively affected all Sport Fishing in Area 25 (Esperanza & Nootka). The catching is generally on inside water in May because of the concentration of the fish in the above noted locations. So weather is seldom a factor.
May is the month for the Esperanza Triple header. “Salmon – Halibut – Ling Cod” Filling the Fish Box!
