Firefighters Net Fishing Tourney Success

With more than a fifty percent increase in participation, the 2019 edition of the Pugwash Fire Department fishing tournament was an unqualified success. There were 156 registered to fish, 123 for mackerel and 33 for the new category, striped bass. The number includes some who registered for both.

This was the 25th year for the tournament and all proceeds for this year were earmarked for the purchase of a rescue boat.

Kirk Stevens captured first place in the bass event with a striper weighing 4.94 pounds. Ron Betts Jr was second with a catch at 4.3 pounds, while Angela Gullens was third with a 2.68-pound catch.

Stevens is shown in the centre of the main photo, flanked on the left by the tournament chair Mark Robinson, and on the right by the bass runner-up Ron Betts Jr.

John Murray’s 1.41-pound fish gave him first in the mackerel division, followed by Paige Allen with a 1.17-pounder and Sarah Colter’s 1.16-pound mackerel.

Murray, shown in the photo with his granddaughter Hanna Blaikie, also captured bragging rights among firefighters with Paul Smith of Wallace in second place.

This year’s field included a good number of kids, none more excited than William Bonvie shown in the photo with Bob Messenger at the official weigh-in.

Pugwash firefighters are getting very close to their goal for a rescue boat. While the figures from the tournament and associated contributions are not yet finalized, some think an announcement is not far off. Deputy Chief Ron Betts went out on a limb to say, “I think we could have a boat in the harbour this spring.”

What a great accomplishment for the Fire Department. The rescue boat is a large expense and with the county cutting the department fire budget and refusing to cost share on the boat hats off to all our Volunteer firefighters.
