Boxing Day Derby

The first annual Boxing Day Derby at the Crab Shack / Jock's Dock was a big success. 75 entrants and a top prize $1,200!

After a blustery week before Christmas, the event got some lucky weather with calm seas and no rain ... right at the 12:30pm finishing up time, the squall kicked up with wind and rain.

Dexter Kennedy won it with a 14.1 winter spring. The photo also has his buddy Jerrod Purdy. The photos below include Roy from Bluewolf Fishing Charters with his 2nd place liquid prizes and the 3rd place kids finisher Aiden with his winnings!

Most of the fishing was between the Sooke Bluffs and Possession Point, on the bottom, 120-150 feet, with glow and purple haze hootchies, and glow teaser head anchovies.

The derby also raised a whole bunch of food for the local food bank, plus the side bet was a 50/50 prize, raising another $200 for the food bank.

A super event, fun for the entrants and funds and food for a good cause.
