Boxing Day Salmon Derby

The fifth annual Boxing Day Salmon Derby is being held for the Sooke Food Bank

The fifth annual Boxing Day Salmon Derby will be held on December 26, at Jock’s Dock. This event has been a huge success the last four years with always good fishing and lots of support for the local Sooke Food Bank. Fishing starts at first light on December 26 with the final weigh-in at 2 p.m. at which time the winner will be announced. Tickets are $25/rod with a 50/50 split going to the winner and the Sooke Food. There will be a kids’ category as well. Also there is a drop off of non-perishable items and a donate-a-slab fish draw, every angler donating a fillet will have a chance at a nice draw prize. In year’s past the donated a slab has helped out the Sooke Food Bank which is always in need of help year round. Tickets can be purchased at Eagle-Eye Outfitters, The Crab Shack and Wise Buys in Colwood.
