Congratulations to Jim Perry of Burton who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This is one of the largest harbors along the coast, and a late fall salmon fishery offers a chance for anglers to hook into some big kings migrating into three large river systems.
This fishery opens in mid-September, and was closed for kings last season. These fish will stack up in the bay until weather and water conditions are right for them to move upstream.
Anglers target them along the channel markers in a shallow water fishery 15 to 30 feet deep. The window to catch these hogs is brief and will close after three weeks, but provides opportunity for coho well into November.
The correct answer Perry gave was Grays Harbor.
“My fishing experience started in Michigan angling for panfish, bass, and pike,” Perry said. “I moved to Vashon Island in 1973. I’ve fished quite a bit for westside bass.”
“This spring I hit couple nice halibut at Neah Bay during the early charter season out of Big Salmon Resort for the first time in over 10 years,” he said. “I’ve been pretty lucky in the past river fishing for silvers on the NakNek and Kenai rivers in Alaska.”
Perry primarily is a saltwater salmon fisherman.
“I mainly fish on a friends boat in North Sound or on my boat in South Sound,” he said. “Salmon fishing in South Sound can be spotty so I’d be lost without searun cutthroat on the fly and hardware.The early silver run sure looks promising this year.”
Perry wins a nice outdoors prize.
