Family Fishing Tournament – 2020

The nights of August 27th, 28th and 29th (arrive Thursday and depart Sunday, August 30th) have these special room rates (BYO boat):

These prices are for the trip, not per night, and for the unit, not per person.

$399 for a cabin room (suitable for 2 people)
$535 for a suite room (suitable for 2 or 3 people)
$625 for a lodge room (suitable for 2 or 3 people)

To qualify for the tournament, you must be accompanied by a mother, father, spouse, daughter, son, aunt, uncle, or grandparent.  This is a three-night soiree with the first night being orientation with appetizers when we review the tournament rules.  The tournament is broken into 4 fishing blocks – two mornings and two afternoons.  Each block will have a designated fishing area where participants must fish within in order to weigh in.  The winner will be the boat that has the highest aggregate catch after weighing in a maximum of one salmon per block.  Windup event with prizes will be held on the evening of August 29th. The spirit of the event is meant to be more fun and less competitive so you don’t have to be a fanatical or experienced fisherman to enjoy.

Jack and Jill Derby 2020 – 23rd annual

June 18th – 21st, 2020 (Arrive Thursday and depart Sunday)
The entry fee is $389 per couple (that’s one man and one woman – hence Jack and Jill).  Includes 3 nights accommodation and derby entry (BYO boat).
There’s also a $50 clubhouse fee added to each Derby entry, which will be credited to the tab during the weekend to put towards tackle, bait, ice, coffee and restaurant (but not gas). Any remaining credit from the $50 at the end of the weekend will be donated to the weekend we host for the Children’s Heart Network.  The total price per couple for the Jack and Jill 3 nights including the $50 credit to spend during the weekend is, therefore, $439 plus taxes.

First prize for biggest Chinook $3,000
Second prize $1,000.
In the event of a tie we pool the prizes and split – so $2,000 each if two are tied.

Carrie the 2019 J&J winner with Cameron


2019 – Carry Armstrong with Claus Sandhack on the Green Monster won with a 33 pounder, and Mia Kenny won second place with a 29 pounder.

2018 – Dale Graham and Wayne Wall, second prize and second prize Kathie Gabelein – I’m very late on the updates and I can’t quite remember the weights. I think they were 25 and 22 pounds.

2017 – Larry Rose with Anita was our winner for 2017, and second prize was Bill Sheldrake

2016 J&J was a tie between Brian Rose and Randy Wunderlick – 25.5 pounds.

Carrie and Claus with Carrie’s 2014 J&J winner


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.
