The Chum derby heats up

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - October 1, 2007

Vancouver Island salmon fishing derby leader Candice MacDougallOur first ever Chum salmon derby is in full swing. As of this morning, here are the current leaders:

  • Candice MacDougall — 15lb 10oz
  • Nic Mazar — 14lb 0oz
  • Ken Dakin — 13lb 11oz
  • Brian Jerebic — 12lb 15oz
  • Gordon Henrikson — 12lb 5oz
  • Stuart Feninberg — 7lb 7oz

A hearty congratulations as well to John Deyoe for landing a beautiful 27 lb. Chinook in the pouring rain yesterday!

It’s been a real west coast fall this last week with some heavy rain and big winds on Saturday. October 1st seems to have calmed the weather somewhat. The seas are calm and we're looking for a bit of sun for some fantastic Chum fishing.

There are still seven fishing days left for you to win the grand prize trip to the Bahamas—see you soon!
