Nanaimo Halibut and Squid Up-Date!

The Harbour Chandler - Monday, June 01, 2015

Nanaimo Halibut and Squid Up-Date!
  Another lucky Nanaimo fisherman caught a nice 55 lb. halibut while trolling for salmon off Neck Point. Similar area to where many others have been caught.
If you get a Nanaimo halibut take a picture with a recognizable landmark (e.g. 5 Finger Island) in the background, bring us the pic, and we will give you a Nanaimo Halibut Club T-shirt.
  Also, there are reports of a large, unidentified species of squid off 5-Fingers. So time to get your squid jigs out, or come buy a new one from us. I love calamari!
Cheers, Steve V
