It’s that time of year again — Super Bowl Sunday and what better way than to have a get together with friends and enjoy some fresh seafood and a few cool ones. How about a winter chinook on the BBQ with crabs and prawns?
Fishing can be hit and miss these days but if you can get out on the water there have been some nice catches in the 10-pound range. Working the trailer park near Otter Point in 100 feet of water seems to be working. It’s too bad one can’t go halibut fishing which, in the past, opened on February 1. Anglers are hopeful it will open on March 1 like it did last year.
More and more anglers are giving halibut a try and why not the catch is worth it. There is only a few tickets left for the upcoming halibut seminar to be held on Feb. 18 at Four Points Sheraton in Langford next to Costco. If you are interested in catching a halibut this seminar should be good for that. There are some good prizes to be had headlined by a raffle for two new high speed Scotty downriggers.
All the proceeds for this event are going to the Charters River Interpretive Centre and Hatchery.
Tickets can be purchased at Eagle-Eye Outfitters in Sooke.
Until next time.
Keep your rod tip up!
