Everett Blackmouth Derby anglers found tough fishing

The Everett Blackmouth Derby was held this past Saturday (March 19), and despite windy weather conditions and rough water about 175 anglers turned out to catch 11 winter chinook.

Troy Moe of Lake Stevens who was fishing with Team Big Kahuna was the derby winner with a 17.53 pound chinook he caught off North Bluff on Whidbey Island, and took home $3,000.

“It was really windy where we were at and tough fishing,” Moe said. “Most anglers stayed close to shore a lot of people didn’t venture very far out.”

Second place of $1,500 went to Trevor Gautreaux with a 13.42 pound fish. Third place of $500 was awarded to Hans Aarhus with a 12.78 pound fish, and fourth place of $250 went to James Lee for his 11.80 pound fish.

The $300 mystery weight prize went to Roland Jeans for his fish weighing 4.01 pounds.

Coming up next in the Northwest Salmon Derby Series is the sold out Anacortes Salmon Derby on March 26-27.
