Cruise without the cruise ship. How about giving this great alternative a try !
You'll see the sights up close and personal in the Grady-White boat . This is ideal for two couples, or a family.
We'll depart from Campbell River and head into the marine backcountry where the narrow ocean channels wind into the coast mountains .
In the late afternoon you'll be relaxing before dinner at your water-access only lodge , where you'll sleep later , in comfort and style.
There are a choice of lodges to suit you, from rustic to luxurious . We can fish for your fresh dinner on the way .
In these days of concern for viruses in crowds , and especially on cruise ships ,
get some clean, fresh air.

Spirit Lures . https://spiritlures.com/
This new kid on the block looks like it has a bright future . I'm happy to be giving feedback to Cameron Neufeld , the developer of this lure . This is the Looney Spoon , and he is also making a swimmer head for hootchies.
These are early days, but so far the Looney Spoon has been out-performing the other favourite lures.
The action is from the head first , which I like , and which you might guess from the shape . The paint and finish and hardware are good quality .
I don't fish with flashers attached to the fishing line , and this lure is a great choice for having that sporty feel of having a direct connection to the fish with a light lure . I'm sure it will work well behind a flasher for those who want to do that .

That's enough scenery shots for a while .
Yes , we did get hit by the snowstorms , in two dumps of snow , but lots of people on the coast got it much worse . And , in a few days we are back to the usual rain and wind storms , which aren't so pretty.

Foreground to back : Tyee Marine store , Fisherman's Wharf , the public Fishing Pier , and Quadra Island with Cape Mudge Lighthouse in the distance .
the new Coast Guard Station
It's January and relatively quiet for most of the fishing boats .
