Winter Blackmouth “Resurrection Derby” – December 6 & 7
Entry fee is $400.00, up to 100 teams with 4 anglers per team. Guaranteed money prizes include a 1st place prize of $10,000; 2nd place $2,500; 3rd place $1,500; $1,000 for total team weight, and a free 2014 entry for the winner of the Mystery Fish prize.
Derby planners have scheduled the derby to coincide with the opening week of the winter fishing season in the San Juan Islands. The winter season in the San Juan Islands is a selective fishery. One of the goals is to raise awareness for the benefits that selective fishing provides, while promoting good sportsmanship and resource stewardship. All net proceeds from the derby, which is staffed solely by club members and community volunteers, will go directly towards salmon enhancement projects. In a short three-year’s time, this event has established itself as an instant classic, and a must-attend for the region’s best salmon anglers.
