You guys did a great job again Chris. You all deserve a big thanks for the work put into the event. Had a great time out fishing hoping for one of those tagged fish. Despite the weather everyone I talked to while out boating were in good spirits. At least there was no wind which is a big bonus to me when out fishing. Even walked away with some hard currency.
Well done, what a wet miserable day but I believe the derby did go well and was lots of fun too. I had to leave for the Island shortly after the derby to have a dedication service at my dad's church for some stain glass windows we had installed soii did not get a chance to give a brief update. George or Rod are going to post the winners as they have the sheeets or George has as well as more pictures. I put some up on the FVSS facebook page before I left, will get more there later.
I am still on Vancouver Island but I have the derby sheets and we had 153 differnt anglers bring in 805 pike minnows for an average of 5.26 fish per angler. Two anglers one on this forum
had 75 fish each. There was 2 specially tagged fish caught and they each won $250. As well there was 3 tags brought in that were tagged by other agencies and they recieved $25 each.
A total of $2685 of money was given out $236 more than last year's derby.
Thanks to all the FVSS derby organizers, guides, those that brought displays, and the donators all too numerous to mention. Special thanks to director Nick, Frank, Ev and Dean from Great River Fishing Adventures for organizing all the guides and their boats.
