Fishing For Kids Update ~ Aug 29 "Shotgun start"

August 29, 2011 | 1093 Views

At 7:00 am this morning the “gun” went off and the 6th annual Fishing For Kids tournament was underway…

Every boat in the fleet and all 42 particpants raced to the fishing grounds to be the first to get lines in the water…

Most of the fishing effort was focused between Coho and MacPhearson points. There was a great early morning bite and listening to the radio I wasn’t sure the weigh boats were going to be able to keep up.

Boat after boat were landing fish and calling in for measurements, Guide Mark, Randy Daggitt and Neil Winkelmann net one while playing a double header…

Although Willie Mitchell (former Canuck and last years big winner) took the early lead with a 25.54 pound fish…it wasn’t enough to hold him in first place…and by the end of the day his fish landed him in 8th. He’s still got a day to pull something out of the bag and here he is heckled by fishing partner Bruce and guide Kuiama…

Canucks GM Mike Gillis had a contender at 30.01 pounds but by the end of the day he didn’t make the final cut for top three and ended up spending part of the day fishing in Bruin Bay (there was some “off radio” talk about that).

Here he is with Guide Brent helping him land one of many…

It was guide Bud and Ian Smith who took the largest fish of the day and first place at 38.76 pounds.

In an “jousting” exchange of nets with Tournament Director Courtney… fish were transfered for measurements…

and almost every fish was successfully released with very few casualities…

Courtney lets this one swim another day.

This years Champion Child Griffin had a fantastic day on the water with his dad Alex and guide Tyler…

Tonight senator Larry MC’d the live auction in benefit of BC Children’s Hospital and Canucks Autism Network…

The results of which have been astounding with the largest single item selling for $200,000…which happens to be an all inclusive trip to the WCFC resort in Panama. Watch out Tobey…they’re headed your way!

The generosity seen tonight has been beyond compare ensuring the 2011 FFK event will raise its greatest amount in 6 years and do wonders for both organizations.

Thanks to all the participants for making this event such a success…and we’ve still got 2 days to go.
