December 24th - Cowichan Bay (#25)
Monica, Jenny,Claire and I went for a Christmas eve prawning trip to Saanich Inlet. The weather was sunny and calm and not too cold considering the time of year! We put our traps down off Ardmore and then went to Cowichan Bay for a pub lunch - nice and warm! After lunch we made our way back to pull the traps and stopped by a large cargo ship on the way. 295 m long and 45 m wide - a bit bigger than us! The catch was not as big as some times, 103 prawns, but I think I dropped a few traps too shallow this time. The prawn puller with hands free attachment worked well. A lovely day out!
