In its eighth year, the Tofino Saltwater Classic fishing derby was created by the National Hockey League’s Brendan Morrison as a fundraiser for Tofino community initiatives. Over $250,000 CAD has been raised thus far! Start your derby weekend with the welcome event at The Shore, food provided by Wolf in the Fog restaurant, and cap off Saturday fishing with the evening reception also at The Shore, situated directly on Tofino’s working harbour.
Curious to see if you can exceed the top 2016 catches? Here are some of the results:
Top Chinook (25.6 pounds): Mark Kosick Top Coho (8.2 pounds): Natalie Bitove Top Halibut (50.1 pounds): Levi Stoddard
