Port Hardy lands spot on fishing show

Westcoast Sporting Journal tests the water off the North Island.

PORT HARDY—When the team from the Westcoast Sporting Journal came to Bear Cove Cottages recently they set aside three days to capture footage of fishing off Port Hardy.

They only needed one.

Bear Cove Cottages owner and the show’s local guide for their trip, Wade Dayley, explained that the TV crew had been scouting for new areas in which to record a show.

The two groups had been put in contact and worked out the details.

The show takes in different locations on the coast and demonstrates angling techniques at top fishing destinations.

It is broadcast across a variety of networks including CHEK, Sportsnet, Wild and World Fishing Network.

The Port Hardy episode is expected to air around 28 times across all networks between September and May.

Dayley said, “It was great, it’s a lot of PR for Port Hardy and the area.

And for us!”
