Congratulations to Gordy Nelson of Shoreline who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This year-round 60-acre lake in Snohomish County offers fairly good trout fishing with April through June being the prime months.
While it receives a plant of about 3,000 to 4,000 8- to 10-inch rainbow trout for the spring fish fest, it’s the big triploid trout planted by the local sportsmen club that draws a lot of attention in the colder months of the year. Perch are also willing bite pretty much all year.
A nice fishing pier is located on the north end of the lake, and an access area and boat ramp are on the south end.
The correct answer Nelson gave was Blackman’s Lake.
“Born in Bellingham my first fishing was along the banks of Whatcom Creek at about age five,” Nelson said. “At first very simple fishing a buckets of worms and off I went.”
“As the years passed I have fished for many specie’s of fish in nine different states and four different countries,” he said. “The latest country I fished in was Peru. My target fish was the payara, which I was able to land two.”
“I enjoy both fresh and salt water fishing for tuna, marlin to small trout as long as the tackle matches the quarry,” Nelson said. “This year I plan on halibut and tuna fishing off the Washington coast.”
Nelson 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, Feb. 18. Winners are announced the following Friday.
