Resurrection Winter Blackmouth Derby in San Juan Islands on Dec. 7-8

The popular Resurrection Winter Blackmouth Derby is Dec. 7-8 at the Port of Friday Harbor Marina on San Juan Island.

The derby is hosted by the Fidalgo-San Juan Islands Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers and the final event in the Northwest Salmon Derby Series.

Cost is $400 with a limit of four anglers per boat and a limit of 100 teams.

First place prize is $10,000, and second wins $2,500. There is also a $1,000 prize for total team weight, and a free 2013 entry for the winner of the Mystery Fish prize.

“The winter season in the San Juans is a selective fishery (and) we want to raise the awareness of the benefits of selective fishing, while promoting good sportsmanship and resource stewardship” Andy Holman, derby organizer said in a news release.

All net proceeds from the derby which is staffed by club and community volunteers will go directly towards salmon enhancement projects.

Last year’s proceeds of nearly $7,000 were donated to the Glenwood Springs Salmon Hatchery in Eastsound on Orcas Island.

Tickets for the Resurrection Derby at Friday Harbor are now available. For more information, visit the Resurrection Derby website.
