Tengu Blackmouth Derby anglers manage to catch two keeper fish on Sunday

The Tengu Blackmouth Derby began this past Sunday, Oct. 28, and 31 anglers managed to catch two chinook.

“Members got a break in the weather on the opener, and weighed in two nice blackmouth,” said Doug Hanada, the Tengu derby president. “At least two other keepers were caught, but had to be released as they had too many fins (wild unmarked chinook).”

“The winning fish came off the East Waterway with Vigor (Todd) Shipyards giving up second place,” he said. “Members reported catching lots of small shakers, and ended up mooching for herring as well as for salmon. Only scattered pockets of bait marked inside the bay, more bait reported off Alki Beach areas.”

The current leader is Steve Nitta with a 7 pound-15 ounce chinook, and second is

Chuck Hammer with a 7-1 chinook.

The derby will meet from daybreak to 11 a.m. every Sunday through Dec. 30 at the Seacrest Boathouse, which is now home to Marination Ma Kai Restaurant in West Seattle near Alki. The boathouse will open at 6 a.m. every other Sunday. Cost is $10 for the derby. Rental boats available at 7 a.m. will cost $65 boat only, and $85 for boat and motor.

Tickets are available at the Seacrest Boathouse, Linc’s Tackle Shop in Seattle, Auburn Sports and Marine, and Outdoor Emporium in Seattle. Details: 206-324-7600.
