Poulsbo angler’s 20 pound lingcod on the weekly Westport fishing derby leaderboard

Bill Thompson of Poulsbo caught a big lingcod weighing in at close to 20 pounds this past Saturday (March 24), and currently holds the lead in the Westport Charterboat Association’s first weekly derby prize of up to $500.

Fishing has been very good for both lingcod and black rockfish out of Westport, with most boats out this weekend catching daily limits or close limits of black rockfish (daily limit is 10) and lingcod (daily limit is two).

Halibut fishing opens at Westport on May 6 and May 22. Salmon fishing will open around mid-June.
