Halibut Hustle – Forth Annual

The nights of June 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 of 2024 (Thursday through Tuesday nights) – rooms are half price for this bare bones week if you book a minimum of three nights. There won’t be any summer services available besides gas and limited store hours for ice, tackle and bait, as we won’t have regular staff yet. The halibut are often still in tight to Escalante and Yuquot early in June, so hopefully bottom fishers won’t have to venture too far.

2013 winner: Julie Kelly (yes, that’s Julie and Grant from Getdanet and Kelly Pilchard fame) with a 30 and a half pounder. Close second place was Mike McGlogan with a 30 and 3/8 pounder (just a 1/8th of a pound smaller). Mike was one of the crew on the Green Monster.

Here’s a picture of Grant and Julie with their winning fish on the scale. The Lorne Halcomb memorial trophy, which Julie is holding, is awarded to the angler who brings in the first Tyee of the season.

Picture of the crew of the Green Monster. One of these fish is almost 30 and a half pounds and took the 2013 second prize.

We had a Tie in 2012!

The winning fish kept getting beat by a pound or two every tide. Mike Sell (yup, the same Mike & Jan team that brought in a 34 pounder the day before the derby started) brought in a 29 pounder and then just moments before the end of the Derby Chris McManus brought in another 29 pounder, so they shared first and second prizes and each won $2,000. Bob Beard was the winning fisherman of Jack and Jill 2011, with the first Tyee of the season – a 31.5 pounder.  In second place with a 26.25 pounder was Caroline Shillito.
