Fish with the Bish!

    This past weekend Merlin and I were host to Max Durando and Brenda Martin, parishioners of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, who bid on and won the ‘Fish with the Bish’ prize at the Bishop’s Gala in April. Skies were fair and seas were (relatively) calm as we headed out from Tahsis on the IXTYS for a weekend of fishing. The excitement of the chase struck quickly, and Brenda was soon doing valiant battle with a 15-pound salmon, all the while calling to Max for reinforcements!

    Max was also victorious, capturing a 20-lb salmon, and more. Accommodations and meals were graciously provided by Westview Marina, owned and operated by John and Cathy Falavolito, and a good time was had by all. Plan to attend next year’s Gala (May 6, 2017) so you can bid to ‘Fish with the Bish’!
