Anglers score no fish at the Tengu Blackmouth Derby on Sunday

121414 Tengu 6 lb 0 Blkmth by Marcus NittaThe Tengu Blackmouth Derby on Sunday saw 27 members going home fishless.

“Great weather and slow action even though they were able to fish all their usual spots on Sunday,” said Doug Hanada, the Tengu derby president. “Shakers reported everywhere, but only small pockets of bait were found. Some members are now loading up on squid as they fish for blackmouth all over the bay.”

The largest fish this season in the derby was caught during the first week on Oct. 26, by Justin Wong, and weighed 13 pounds, 9 ounces.

Only one more Sunday remains in the derby series with fishing beginning from daybreak to 11 a.m. at the Seacrest Boathouse in West Seattle. Cost is $15 per person, and $5 for kids under age 12. Details: 206-324-7600.
