One happy halibut fisherman.

How’s fishing?

Local guide and recreational fishing enthusiast Steve Arnett thanks local businesses and fishers

Happy Hali fisherman unloads his catch at the dock at the March 25 Sooke Halibut Festival & Derby. The derby raised over $6,600 dollars for the Juan de Fuca Restoration Society, Charters River Interpretive Centre as well as $1,000 to the Sooke Food Bank along with over 120 pounds of halibut fillets. $400 went to the Sooke Historical Society to help out with the filming of the 75th anniversary Sooke Community Association. The Sooke Halibut Festival & Derby committee would like to thank everyone who participated in the derby; over 120 anglers, and to all the many volunteers who helped out and to the businesses for the many donations of prizes for the derby and the silent auction. Your generosity helped make our 2nd Annual Sooke Halibut Festival & Derby a huge success, see you all next year.
