I had the chance to fish Sunday in the Anacortes Salmon Derby. I joined John Keizer and Ron Endsley aboard Keizer’s Salt Patrol boat.

Although we came back to the dock empty-handed, I still had a good time.

Jeffrey P. Mayor/The News Tribune Some of the biggest salmon, including the winning fish at the bottom, are displayed after the Anacortes Salmon Derby Sunday.

Brian Darling of Anacortes took him the $12,000 first prize with a salmon weighing 18.62 pounds. Jamie Morrow of Mount Vernon won $4,000 for his 17.86-pound fish. Bill Lavalle of Snohomish took third place and $2,000 with his 17.7-pound fish.

There were 88 fish checked in on Saturday and just 26 fish on Sunday, a cold and windy day.
