Reel Time trivia winner hails from Raymond

Congratulations to Mark Collett of Raymond who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner, and answered first by saying it was the “Humptulips River.”

Collett just recently moved back to Washington in September after spending seven years living in Soldotna, Alaska, and the prior time in Aberdeen for 26 years raising three kids.

“I’ve fished nearly every creek from the Columbia to the Strait of Juan de Fuca in those 26 years,” Collett said. “One of the reasons I moved back here is to be able to fish liquid water (not frozen) all year long.”

“Even a river as big as the Kenai freezes over for to many months up there, so its good to be home, Collett said. “I’ve taken many drift boat trips down the Humptulips River, so it was an easy guess.”

Since moving back Collett has been fishing local waters around Raymond, mostly from his kayak, since he had to sell his powerboat to make the move back to Washington.

“Salmon (freshwater or saltwater) and steelhead are my favorite fish to catch, but lingcod are number one to eat,” Collett said. “Thus the need for another boat. I have caught lings out of my kayak at a secret Grays Harbor location, but I’m liking the comfort factor of a power boat.”

Collett wins a nice outdoor book.

This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest where the winner who answers the question first will receive an outdoor prize that will range from books, Berkley bait, lures and other nifty items from the outdoors gunnysack.

The next trivia question will posted on Monday, Nov. 7. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
