Great derby with awesome prizes...
Picked up my tickets this afternoon at gone fishing nanaimo!
Hmm...sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend. Normally how many boats come up for the derby?
They limit it to 500 tickets total, so I guess it depends on how many people per boat.
Lots!! The docks at poets nook are packed for the prize ceremony
Last few years have been over 400+ tickets sold. This is a great starter derby for the year.
Already booked in at the Beam for the weekend. Bringing the kid this year Gary so you may have to behave. But I won't hold my breathe. See ya up there.
Lol I can behave but no promises about my crew... see you at the beam
Less then a week away and have heard some good fishing reports
What have you heard ?
We'll be there in our 20' Double Eagle. It will be nice to put some faces to the names.
Have fun everyone! I don’t fish or sleep anymore with a newborn.
It'll be our first time at this derby this year and are very excited , does anyone know if they are selling fuel in bamfield during the derby?
mckay bay will be.
If anyone wants to share info throughout the day back and fourth my numbers 250-618-8548 you can text me to set something up channel wise for vhf or text I should have service throughout the sound or atleast I used too, but I just switched cell phone providers so I haven't tested that yet.
Just follow Albernifisher around, he will be on the fish!
Ummmm but I thought I was following you around???
Another great kick off the season derby by the folks in Alberni and at the Nook. Fishing a little spotty with the big tides but most crews seemed able to adjust their expectations with the odd . Winning fish slightly over 17 lbs and next 2 in the 15lb range.
