Tengu Blackmouth Derby in Elliott Bay gives up just one hatchery chinook on Sunday

The second week of the Tengu Blackmouth Derby began this past Sunday, and lured 33 anglers who only managed to catch two chinook and one of them was a wild fish that had to be released.

“Good weather didn’t help as they could only bring one blackmouth to the weigh-in,” said Doug Hanada, the Tengu derby president. “Duwamish Head gave up the winner and at least one other wild keeper was caught but had to be released. They’re still lots of small shakers around, but very little bait was reported anywhere inside or out of the bay.”

The winning fish this Sunday was caught by Justin Wong of Seattle and weighed 4 pounds-12 ounces.

The season leader is Steve Nitta with a 8 pound-2 ounce chinook.

The derby meets 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 opens at 6 a.m.

Cost is $15 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.
