It was tough times this past Sunday (Nov. 18) for the 28 anglers who tried their luck in Elliott Bay.

“The Bay was very stingy on Sunday as no legal blackmouth were caught by 28 members,” said Doug Hanada, the Tengu Derby president. “At least one keeper was reported released because it was a native fish. Members fished all around the Bay, but hooked only small shakers and there was very little bait reported as well.”

The season leading chinook a 9 pound-12 ounce fish was caught on Nov. 11 by Justin Wong of Seattle. Steve Nitta is in second place with an 8 pound-2 ounce chinook on the opening Sunday, Nov. 4.

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.
