Two Dave’s Beat Down DerbyJune 4, 2013 | 1103 Views
Sunday, June 2nd – The Wednesday Pro-Am
If this was a PGA event, it would be the Wednesday Pro-Am. Under a light Haida Gwaii mist, the first helicopters of the 2013 season touched down at The Clubhouse this morning with the 39 entrants of the Two Dave’s Beat Down Derby. Namesakes Dave Akins and Dave Bowyer are here in search of a three-peat and will be reunited with their guide Brent Maracle. The threesome boated a matching pair of 41 pounders last year on their way to a virtual clean sweep of the prize table. This afternoon is a personal fishing day and warm up for the competition which starts Monday morning. The skies cleared nicely in the afternoon and winds remained light to moderate overall. Early reports from around the island indicated good numbers of chinook in the high teens to mid twenties. Our guests enjoyed a solid first afternoon with most fish in the 20 to 30 pound class. Occasional double and triple headers added to the fun. A fine start to the 2013 season. Tomorrow, it’s for keeps.
