PHOTO OF THE WEEK: After the Kitimat Ice Demons won 2 games this weekend over the Prince Rupert Rampage 5 to 2 Saturday and 4 to 2 Sunday, they advance in the playoffs in the quest for the "Coy Cup".

The Team bus got stuck in Cable Car returning home which required the entire team to get off the bus and push.  After the Kitimat Ice Demons players managed to get the bus unstruck, I ceased the moment to get a "Team picture".  The picture speaks for itself!

As the father of Ice Demon player, Brandon Wakita and proud uncle of Derek Wakita and proud supporter of the Kitimat Ice Demons it is with pride that I present this picture as Photo of the Week.  The Kitimat Ice Demons support the efforts of the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force and Vise Versa.

Kitimat River
The weather in Kitimat has been a bit warmer and we have received rain rather than snow.  A few hard core Trout fishers have been out catching
Trout.  The Kitimat Combo is the more productive method of fishing for Kitimat Trout. 


The Kitimat Combo is a Bubba's Bait Barn Dew Worm comboed with a Berkley Power Bait 3" worm float fished with a Gibbs Float.  We are receiving a fair amount of rain and the forecast is for a little snow.

Douglas Channel
The Douglas Channel was very quiet as the Recreation Halibut Season remains closed.  A few boats wondered out to do a little Crabbing.

Special Report:
Glen Kilcup of Fishawk Guiding reports, "Yesterday Bruce Miller and I snuck out with the jetboat on the upper Kalum....(good boating conditions) and we were able to get into a decent days fishing. Gibbs Silver Koho 65 and copper Ironhead spoons were the winning factors. We saw about a half a dozen anglers who had walked in on various runs."

The Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force has just sent an Invitation to the Prime Minister to attend our Town Hall Meeting in Kitimat on Feb 27th at 2:00 PM at the Kitimat Rod and Gun Club.  The residents of Kitimat and our neighbors in the North West are so deeply concerned about the affects the Inseason Halibut closure will have on our lives we are willing to pay for the Prime Minister's plane ticket to Kitimat. 
The Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force is providing the Prime Minister the opportunity to earn the trust we bestowed in him and the Conservative Government in the last election.  The Conservative Government of Canada will be held accountable for this grossly unfair Halibut Allocation policy.
We are encouraging all Canadians to stand-up along side us and fight for our rights and the rights of our Children and our Grandchildren rights to fish for Halibut. 
Please use the information provided below and write a letter to the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister of Canada
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0A6

Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper,

I would like to invite you, on behalf of the Kitimat Halibut Allocation Task Force,  to attend a Town Hall Meeting on Sunday February 27th in Kitimat, British Columbia.

The topic of concern is the DFO Halibut Allocation Policy and the resulting Inseason Closure of Halibut to the Recreation Sector.

The residents of Kitimat, and our neighbors in the North West B.C, are deeply concerned about the affects the Inseason Halibut closure will have on our of way of lives, local businesses and the tourist industry in North West British Columbia.  The economy in the region has been devastated by significant reduction in industrial activity including the recent closure of the Eurocan pulp and paper mill.  The importance of Sport Fishing to our tourist industry is significant.  Members of the Task Force find the current DFO Halibut Allocation Policy to be  counterproductive to our local economy yet does not advance fisheries conservation objectives.  It compromises the rights of all Canadians to fish for Halibut without any commensurate benefit.   People here are deeply troubled and upset about this issue to the extent that  we are willing to pay the Prime Minister's plane fare to attend this Town Hall Meeting.

Representatives of the Sports Fishing Institute (SFI), the Sport Fishing Advisory Board and Members of the BC Wildlife Federation have been negotiating with the DFO Minister for 8 years but have not be able to produce a DFO Halibut Allocation Policy that is fair for all Canadians.  SFI members feel that "DFO Minister Shea has visibly demonstrated a lack of interest for the Canadian public" on this issue.

We hope the Prime Minister will accept our invitation and attend our Town Hall Meeting to listen to our concerns.  We are confident that once you view the DFO Halibut Allocation Policy and hear us in person you will better appreciate this issue and be compelled to make changes in the interest of all Canadians.

If you could confirm your attendance by contacting me at the numbers below we will be happy to organize your travel arrangements.

Looking forward to your attendance at this important meeting.
