Puget Sound Anglers Sno-King Derby on Saturday yields 17 hatchery chinook

PSASno-KingNovemberDerby2

The Puget Sound Anglers Sno-King Chapter held its November Blackmouth Members’ and Guests’ Salmon Derby on Saturday, Nov. 16, and 40 anglers who braved the weather managed to weigh-in 17 blackmouth at the Port of Edmonds Marina.

Actually, the weather didn’t end up being a factor as anglers who ventured had calm water conditions and good hatchery blackmouth fishing at Possession Bar in northern Puget Sound.

Spoons and plugs dominated the catch with nearly all the fish being hooked near the bottom water column.

Pat Read, who just joined the PSA Sno-King two days before the derby, made a big splash and scored first place and 50-percent of the prize money with a gilled and gutted 8 pound, 5.4 ounce hatcher chinook.

The derby raised a $210 donation to Fish Northwest, and four lucky anglers took home their share of the prize pool.

Other finishers were Joe Pa in second place2nd with a 8 pound, 1.6 ounce fish;third was Jim Fahey with a 6 pound, 8.5 ounce fish; and the mystery fish winner was Derek Petersen with a 6 pound, 7.3 ounce fish. For more information, go to www.psasnoking.com.
