Spring water activities
My love for the environment has always made me yearn to go outdoors and try out various activities. This is because the activities usually help in rejuvenating both my mind and body and more importantly makes me realize how important nature is to humans and thus help me in my campaigns and advocacy for environmental conservation as well as protecting other creatures especially the endangered ones.
One of the lovely outdoors activities that I usually participate in is sport fishing. The destination most preferable to me is The Great Lakes region in North America, specifically British Columbia.
Last spring I went booked a luxury charted cruiser and off we went into the Pacific Ocean along Prince Rupert, for some saltwater experiences.
Armed with my lines and other water gear, we left for the wilderness in the Pacific to fish. The charted company had an amazing guide and throughout the cool salty rush of the sea breeze we went fishing with the guide chatting and marveling at my tricks of fishing.
Being an avid lover of fish sporting, I didn’t go for salmons which were plenty then but tried my best catching other species like Coho, sockeye and other rare species which were not abundant in this great sea at this period of the year such as ling cods. There were spectacular scenic views of various ships and also whales which we would see from time to time as we went deep into the sea.
As we came along Skeena River I really marveled at the beautiful sights of the mountain vistas and along as we went deep I really loved the contact of being away from other people and so close to nature. I went along taking shot of the beautiful and marvelous seascapes as we chatted with the tour guide and took some champagne.
I never realize that the day had gone so fast until the captain suggested that it was time to turn back and head home. As we were on our way home, there were more whales to watch since it was evening and most of them were coming towards us thus giving us a good chance to sightsee.
All along I continued fishing and the fun seemed to be more heightened because as the evening was approaching more fish and other sea creatures of different colors and sizes would repeatedly be seen in the sea and I was able to catch different varieties.
I must admit that if there is one destination that you need to try sport fishing in the salty waters, then it’s Prince Rupert.
