Saanich Penisula resident wins grand prize in Black Press' online Father's Day Barbecue Giveaway

Catching a 11.5-kilogramd spring salmon with her dad after a day-long fishing trip was the epitome of happy father-daughter experiences for Cheyenne Duguay.

The 16-year-old Saanich Peninsula resident submitted a photo of herself and her dad, Dan, with the prize fish they landed at the mouth of Victoria Harbour after six hours in the boat, for Black Press’ online Father’s Day Barbecue Giveaway.

“What a surprise after six hours without a bite, and then finally landing this amazing and very tasty salmon,” she wrote in her submission.

Duguay’s entry, one of more than 100 photographic entries received of people with their dads, was selected at random as the winner.

She received a Weber charcoal barbecue and bag of charcoal briquets, courtesy of Capital Iron, along with a $100 gift card to Glenwood Meats in Langford.
