Sure Strike

Published March 29, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Among hundreds of Northwest fishing fans gathered last weekend for the Anacortes Salmon Derby was George McLeod, founder of the Sure Strike frozen bait company (right, checkered coat). McLeod, visiting here with Cap Sante Boat Haven Harbormaster Dale Fowler (standing), established the renowned company more than four decades ago. Fowler says of the Lake Campbell resident: “George is a real gentleman and a rock solid supporter of recreational salmon fishing. I admire and respect him a great deal.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
