Submitted by Sandspit Rod & Gun Club–Coho not Kentucky! For those who think and talk about the “braggin’ rights” that go with the big Coho, now is the time to perform.This is the 55th annual Sandspit Rod & Gun Clubs Coho Derby and the four-weekend event is gearing up to provide the fishers all the usual items of the Derby. Tickets are available at Bridgeview Marine, Super Valu, Bayview S & S. and Meegan’s. Tickets are required if you are going to fish for a top ten spot.There are categories for fishers of all ages and genders. There is also a category for ticket holders who do not weigh a fish in, so come and give it a try .Ray K. is chef-weighmaster at Copper Bay once again. He will weigh your fish in Saturday and Sunday until 8 PM, when the scales close. He also continues to offer his sourdough pancakes on Sunday morning starting at 8 AM. Then through the day hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. will be available.Thanks to all the volunteers who help with making the Derby successful. Also thanks to the many businesses and organizations that contribute prizes for the awards that go to the lucky fishers.Copper Bay will be the fishing and social centre for the weekends, Sept. 20-Oct. 12. Come out to see how the fishers and top ten are doing and enjoy some of the offerings from “The Shack”. Tidal fishing regulations apply and only Coho caught within the boundaries are Derby eligible. Good luck and may the “braggin’rights’ be yours.
