What a weekend! Halibut fishing on the west coast is amazing, and peak season for halibut Is typically May and June. My good friend Jerry of Mills Landing Cottages and I decided to take advantage of this blessing and host a halibut derby.
The 30-year anniversary of the Sproat Loggers Winter Spring Derby was held March 3 and 4. Don Deforest founded the derby with a few friends back in 1988 and has been the driving force behind this fun-for-all tournament.
