Reel Time trivia winner hails from Snohomish

Congratulations to Reed Lane of Snohomish who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This famous salmon fishing hole is located in northern Puget Sound (Marine Catch Area 9), and sits on the southern edge of an island home to a military air station.

There are numerous places to fish across this expansive area, and depending on the tides you’ll fish one particular area and the move to another once it changes. Trolling has become the most popular method although folks like me can still mooch up a salmon.

It has also become a popular place to catch lingcod in the spring time off its rocky shoals and ledges.

The correct answer Lane gave was Possession Bar.

“I grew up in Snohomish fishing around Hat Island and Possession Point with my family,” Lane said. “My grandpa had a boat then my dad had a boat. My whole family loves the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands.”

My wife and I also enjoy kayaking,” he said. “I like salmon fishing, crabbing, shrimping and clam digging. I would like sports fishing to maintain and prosper. So I think people should be conscious of seafood sustainability.”

Lane 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, Nov. 12. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
