Spring Fling Derby Winners

June 12, 2014

Our 2014 Spring Fling Derby has officially come to close after an exciting month of eager anglers, big catches, close calls, and promising weigh-ins. Now that the dust has settled, three guests will be lucky enough to take home one of our amazing prizes—a prize each for the two biggest fish, and a bonus prize by random draw. All of our winners will be personally contacted for redemption of their prizes. So without further ado, allow me to announce our winners:

Our Grand Prize of a 4-Day, 3-Night Fishing Package for two goes to…. Karen Van Slyke for her 27.4 lb. Spring!

You may recall when Karen caught the beautiful Spring right at the start of the season on May 9th. Also, a big shout out to our guide Steve Webber for leading our guests to the winning fish.

Our Second Prize of a 3-Day, 2-Night Adventure Package at April Point Resort & Spa goes to… Ken Volk with his 24.5 lb. Salmon!

Ken brought in near the end of the Derby on June 3rd. He will have his choice of two of the following with his package: a 4-hour fishing trip, whale watching adventure, $200 spa credit, or 18 holes of golf at Storey Creek.

And finally our Bonus Prize of a 3-Day, 2-Night Fishing Package at the Canadian Princess Resort in Ucluelet was randomly drawn from all of our participants who caught a Spring in the Derby. The winner of the draw was…. John Janzen!

John and his friend Brian Sorokin fished with us June 5th and 6th and took home a few nice Spring from their charters.

To everyone who fished with us during the Spring Fling Derby, thanks for participating! Even if you did not receive a prize this year, we hope you created some happy memories, shared some smiles and laughs, and maybe even took home a fish or two.

Next up… the August Heat Derby! See you then,
