Fish tales

Port Renfrew fish derby brought home a big winner

Port Renfrew Marina Annual Coho Derby winner this year was Brick Betsworth from Choice Charters, weighing in this beauty at 19 lbs 12 oz. netting him just over $10,000. “Our lines were a tangled mess,” said Rosie, Brick’s wife and fishing partner, “and I thought he had lost it. When he finally managed to get that fish to the boat what an awesome sight. Best fishing day ever!”
