Attention all prize-winners who weren’t at the awards ceremony: We have had a delay in sending out prizes by mail, but never fear, this will all be happening soon. Feel free to contact us for more info, but don’t worry, everything is happening, just a little more slowly than usual. Our Treasurer has been in the hospital (he’s out now and all is well) and it was more sensible to wait until he was up and about rather than trying to hand all these paperwork details off to somebody else. Again, if you are unsure, or if you think we might have trouble contacting you, then by all means shoot us an email and we’ll be sure that everything is copacetic. We’ll post further updates if anything surprising happens, otherwise just please be patient.
The four mystery fish winners were:
- Kevin Nitta (Sequim)
- Ryan Lampers (Granite Falls)
- Bill Kramer (Sequim)
- Ashley Merrill, (Port Hadlock)
Congratulations to them, and to everybody who was out there fishing in the big wind.
We had difficult weather but still recorded 171 fish over six pounds, about what we recorded in 2011 (but less than the 217 of 2012 and the 249 of last year). Awards will be presented in Gardiner at 2PM. See the final results here.
Geoffrey Cobb of P.A. has caught a new 3rd place fish — 14.25 pounds. Congrats.
We goofed in the listing of a generous $100 prize donated by Terri Runn in memory of Al Carlson (we had his name wrong). That has been fixed. We’ve also reordered the prizes so that they correctly reflect their value order. Remember that winners get to pick any prize remaining on the ladder – you don’t have to take the next prize in sequence if you prefer something else.
Brisk winds put a damper on the end of Sunday’s fishing. One boat reported a 47 Mph gust off Point Hudson. Nevertheless a lot of good fish were turned in today, including the top five fish on the ladder at the moment. We’ll all be hoping that the forecast is correct: calmer conditions Monday morning. Good luck to all!
