Congratulations to Mark Schoner of Seattle who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This stump filled lake is the largest in Pierce County, and has a limited rainbow trout, bass and perch fishery, but it’s more well known for another toothy fish.

This gnarly fish is a cross between a northern pike and muskellunge has turned this lake into a Northwest fishing mecca, but the power boaters, jet skiers and other watercraft can make summer time a pretty busy place.

Many anglers target the early morning hours here to catch fish. There are boat launches on the northeast and northwest sides of this 2,300 acre lake.

The correct answer Schoner gave was Lake Tapps.

“I started fishing 45years ago as a youngster,” he said. “My first experience was on Steel Lake in Federal Way on opening day of trout season with my dad (Fred Schoner). What a eye opener. I could not believe how many boats were on the water. We got our limits and I was hooked.”

“My dad at that time was President of the Salmon & Steelhead Association of Puyallup.”

Schoner now fishes for steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula and southwest Washington rivers.

“I love fishing for silver salmon in Puget Sound in the fall float fishing herring from the bank,” he said. “Man do they slam that bait!”

Schoner wins a nice outdoors prize.

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, June 25. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
