Reel Time trivia winner hails from Seattle

Congratulations to Andrew Gendaszek of Seattle who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner, and answered first by saying it was “Lake Sawyer.”

“I grew up fishing on the Jersey shore for bluefish, weakfish, and flounder, but stopped fishing until I moved out to Seattle years later,” Gendaszek said.” I like to head out to Eastern Washington to fly fish for trout and bass in the Seep Lakes, and bring my rod hiking to alpine lakes in the Cascades.”

Gendaszek says, “nothing beats salmon fishing from a kayak in Puget Sound especially when you catch something big enough to tow you around.”

The picture is Gendaszek with a sockeye from one of his favorite fishing adventures near Yakutat, Alaska.

“A friend and I spent a few days floating the length of the Situk River from Situk Lake down to the ocean subsisting on almost nothing but sockeye along the way,” he said.

Gendaszek 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. 14. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
