Last year’s 167-pound derby winner brought a lot of excitement to the event and made for a good photo opportunity.

How’s Fishing

Kiwi Magic talks about the upcoming March Halibut Festival

Tickets for the upcoming Sooke Halibut Festival are on sale now.  The Festival will be held on March 24 and 25 at Jock’s Dock. Tickets can be purchased in Sooke at Eagle-Eye Outfitters and the Crab Shack. As well they will be on sale at this weekend’s Kickin’ Butt Halibut Seminar. Tickets are $60 and the first prize is $4,000. Second will $1,000 and third $500. The event, in its second year, is limiting the derby to just 200 tickets.

Now is the time to get the boat ready for some halibut fishing in March. Should be some halibut around since nobody has been able to fish them since September 5. More anglers are taking to waters in search of halibut with the uncertainty of salmon fishing in theSooke area. Just as they open halibut fishing they will reduce chinook salmon fishing between Sheringham Point and Victoria to hatchery only.

Until next time.

Keep your rod tip up!
