As millions of pinks are starting to filter into Puget Sound there is an event happening in Elliott Bay that will lure anglers out on the water on kayaks.
Alki Kayak Tours and Northwest Kayak Anglers are hosting the Humpy Kayak Classic on Saturday, Aug. 17. The derby headquarters will be located at Jack Block Park, 2130 Harbor Ave. S.W. in West Seattle. Cost is $40 and deadline is Aug. 12.
All pinks submitted must be whole (no gutting but clipping of a gill arch for bleeding is OK). Weigh-in deadline is 3 p.m. First place prize is a Wilderness Systems Ride 135 Advanced Angler Edition Kayak.
