South King County PSA Derby lures more than 360 anglers out ion the water last Saturday

The South King County Puget Sound Anglers Derby was held last Saturday, and more than 360 anglers caught 47 fish. The winning hatchery king weigh-in 27 pounds, 2 ounces was caught off Dolphin Point by Kyle Klein who took home $3,500.

“Most fish came on the early bite, including Kyle’s between 30 and 40 feet,” said Terry Weist, a derby spokesman. “With this hotter weather it appears the fish are getting their surface time early in the morning before seeking protection from the deep as the sun appears.”

All 47 fish that anglers weighed-in received a prize with a minimum value of $50.

In the Kids Division, Robert Adjutant took first place with a 14 pounds, 13 ounce hatchery king caught in southern Puget Sound.

Adjutant also received a “bonus” $500, plus his choice on the table for his derby fish.

Other top finishers in the adult division were second place finisher Mike Baughman, 22 pounds-0 ounce king, $1,500; third was Mark Hoberg, 17-10, $1,000; fourth was Jerry Schmidt, 17-2, guided fishing trip for four; and fifth was Larry Olsen, 17-2, Cannon electric downriggers.

Others in the Kids Division were second place to Lauren Forrest, 11-4; third Ryan Anderton, 10-4; and Samuel Aiken, 8-2.
