The salmon derby with 100 boats is going on this weekend at Roche Harbor, Typical weather, rain and some more rain for the anglers to contend with. As of this morning a 22 lb blackmouth was the leading fish landed for the $10,000 first place prize. Shots from last years event. The derby was cancelled during the boat show due to basically mismanagement of the fishery, but was later reopened up to accommodate this derby and the Anacortes Derby. Everyone was very happy that the Washington State Dept of Fish and Wildlife made the decision to allow these derbies to go forward. The amount of effort, planning that goes into setting up these events is huge. Not to mention the economic impact on the local workers.

We were at the Seattle International Boat Show at CenturyLink Field. I was at the Windermere Booth Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Seen a lot of old friends. Our booth was in the East Hall next to Roche Harbor’s display. This is one of the largest boat shows in the US and the premier event of the winter for the boating community in the Pacific Northwest. People come from all over the world to visit this event. I have a client who comes every year from Costa Rica specifically for this event.
