The Sekiu Halibut Derby is this Saturday and Sunday (June 12-13), and fishing has been decent in recent days.
“Halibut fishing has been real good, and even with the minus tides [last week] it was almost a two fish per boat average,” said Gary Ryan at Van Riper’s Resort in Sekiu.
Cost is $10 per angler, and everyone in the boat needs a ticket. fishing hours are Saturday 5 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Sunday 5 a.m. until noon.
First prize for the largest halibut is worth $10 per pound, and the biggest black rockfish is worth $100. Details: 360-963-2334 or 360-963-2311.
