Three down, one to go!

Submitted by Sandspit Rod & Gun Club–Coho Derby 3rd Weekend ResultsA good weekend for the Derby . Big fish caught, good weather and lots of hungry folks at the ‘shack’.The big fish was caught early Saturday morning by a lady who had purchased a rod, reel and lure locally for $39.95 and on about the third cast hooked the Coho. As they say it takes a community to get some things done. She was having trouble handling the fish while standing on the rocks and her net was really inadequate for the task. Then the others near her got into action by getting a more appropriate net and getting the fish and her safely up the rocks. Witnesses say, as she weighed the fish shortly after, she was still vibrating and had a smile you could see a mile. Way to go Roberta and be sure to remember your assistants if this is this years ‘Big One’.The food at the ‘shack’ ran out late Sunday and Ray apologizes as the crowd was really unexpected. Ray had lots of help and is thankful as he would not have made it without you. With one weekend to go be sure to try his sourdough pancakes (Sun. 8-11am) or his hamburgers. As always he can use a little help around the ‘shack’.It is obvious the competition is heating up as the ladies and juniors got into the action. It is safe to say that the ladies have thrown the gaff hook down and you will need a big fish to bump them out of the standings.1. Roberta Olson 19 08 oz2. Brent Harrison 17 113.
