How's fishing?

Winter fishing the last few weeks off Sooke has been very good  — weather permitting.  Steady fishing from start to finish keeps one busy and warm. Out in front of the Sooke Harbour in 100 plus feet dragging the bottom for best results. Try the J-79 squirt trolled behind a  purple Hot Spot with a glow insert and that should get the job done. Also  try Coho Killer, Glo hootchies as well as herring and anchovies which work well.

On the derby scene is the third annual Boxing Day Salmon Derby. Fishing starts at dawn on Monday, Dec. 26 with weigh-in at 1:30 at the Crab Shack at Jock’s Dock. Proceeds for the derby go to the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre and donations will taken for the Sooke Food Bank. Stay tuned for details in next week’s paper.

Keep your rod tip up!
