Congratulations to Paul Trettevik of Seattle who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

The coho fishery in Central Puget Sound is off to a great start, and this fishing area is a hot spot with a huge marina and breakwater just to the south. A yummy burger shack greets people at the four lane boat ramp, and you’ll see anglers tossing crab traps off the nearby pier.

It also has one of bigger saltwater beaches north of Seattle where bonfires smolder at night. There is a green buoy off this point I am fishing, and a railroad track sits along the shoreline. I’m looking for the name of the point where the buoy is located.

The correct answer Trettevik gave was Meadow Point.

“I am a former fisheries biologist who worked the in tropical Pacific, all the while caching squid, sharks and yellowfin and skipjack tuna, from New Zealand to Panama,” Trettevik said. “I am a lifelong, die hard Washington fisherman.”

“I make frequent trips to Westport, Alaska, and Rufus Woods Reservoir, fishing for salmon, halibut, and the triploid rainbow trout below Grand Coulee Dam,” he said.

Trettevik 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, Sept. 10. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
