Ned Baess 2

Edward (Ned) Peter Baess, named after his father’s closest friend Edward (Ned) Peter Ash, first started hanging out at the club in his mother’s womb.  He grew up shiner fishing off the docks and catching crab on weekends at Sidney Spit.  During the summer months in the 1970’s and 1980’s Ned went cruising with his father to Desolation Sound, mostly hanging out on Cortes Island.  Ned scratched clams commercially and guided fishing charters in his 17’ Boston Whaler in the glory days of fishing off of Campbell River in the 80’s.  Having owned numerous small fixer-up boats, Ned is now the very grateful owner of a 2017 Monaro 27.  Salmon, Halibut, Cod, Crab, Sea Cucumber, and Prawns are literally minutes away from the club (at 25 knots).  A new interest for Ned has been prawning.  He will share what he has learned over the past few years, from equipment, bait preparation, where and how to set traps, and processing the catch.  Techniques for successful crabbing will also be discussed.

George Hamilton - has been disturbing the lives of fish around the bottom end of Vancouver Island for the past 35 years. He has been addicted to fishing and the ocean since arriving in Victoria in the 70’s. He has spent a great deal of time fishing near Port Renfrew where he began his Elementary school teaching career. There he began to hone the skill of absorbing knowledge from fellow fishers. Once settled back in Victoria he continued to observe and absorb what others were doing in order to catch fish in this area. This evening he will hopefully assist you to satisfy your fishy addiction.  

Brings the kids – this will be an audience participation extravaganza with prawn and crab giveaways!
