Halibut Fishing is normal for this time of year and that is to say it's very good. Most boats bringing in limit catches of "chickens" coming in from Swiftsure Bank. Berkley grubs are the bait of choice by many.
Last Weekend's Davey Derby was a huge success, with a turnout of 329 entries. Port Renfrew Marina is proud to host this wonderful derby and are very pleased to see it reach new levels of funds raised each year. This years monies are $21,304.00! $1000.00 of which will be going to the local Renfrew Fish Hatchery. Despite the damp weather and slow fishing to start things went well as you can see in the record of how many fish over 30 were caught in that weekend. Fishing picked up on the Sunday with a 47 being caught at noon that day. One interesting note was when Jim Lam and John & Bill Hieta actually hooked a scuba diver while crabbing! He was let go after giving up two crab. For all the details go to www.daveyderby.ca .
