This Past Labour Day Unifor 1119 and Local 466 hosted a Kids Catch and Release Fishing Derby at the Sechelt Pier and Friendship Park. A BBQ lunch was provided for all participants and spectators. The weather in Sechelt held out for the kids with a bit of an onshore breeze making it a little more challenging for the young fishers who chose to fish off the float. Roughly 50 kids came out to join in on the fun with their families to fish off the Sechelt pier and float. The kids did more than their part as some fairly healthy fish were caught, measured and released.
The big and little winners were:
Biggest Fish: Kassidy McNeil with a 13.25” flounder.
Cyrus Jackson with a 11.25” inch bull head.
Smallest Fish : Miles Garbauski with a 3.125” shiner.
Most Unusual Catch: Joshua Gabuevara with some bull kelp.
Youngest Fisher: Lily Garbauski.
Salmon: Hana Tsuji 5.25” coho.
