Derby Signups extended

In order to raise more money for ServeItUp, the charity benefitting from our derby, we have decided to extend derby signups through all of Friday. However, anyone who signs up AFTER 7am may not weigh-in a fish until Saturday in order to prevent cheating. This also has the added benefit of increasing the amount of cash prizes that will be awarded! We close at 9pm nightly.

Salmon Derby Starts TOMORROW!

In case you missed my emails/posts or the ad in the crab cracker, or the hundreds of flyers around town, our Charity Salmon Derby is this Friday & Saturday, the 26th & 27th. Cost is $35 per person, kids under 13 fish FREE! Sign ups end Friday at 7am. Weigh-ins are from 10am-12pm Friday and 10am-2pm on Saturday. Each participant can weigh only 1 Pink Salmon per day. Prizes will be awarded at 3pm on Saturday. There will be raffles for some FREE GASOLINE courtesy of Gull, as well as FREE hot dogs, chips & water on Saturday from 1:30-3:00pm as part of the event. Don’t have a boat? Don’t let that hold you back because Humpy Salmon can be caught from the beach just as easily as a boat!

What kind of prizes can you win? Well, cold hard CASH for starters! Then we have lots of non-cash prizes which I will list below so you can be even more motivated to enter:

7′ St Croix rod/reel combo
5 Assorted reels
2 weekday green fees from Camaloch Golf Course
Dr. Pepper cooler on wheels with built-in speakers
Lots of misc. tackle
Assorted gift baskets from Studio 271 and Karen’s Kitchen
$20 gift certificate to Islanders restaurant

A massage from Studio 271
$35 gift certificate to Dos Reales restaurant
4 tickets to the 2011 Camano Island Chamber of Commerce Chili/Chowder Cookoff
1 year free rental on a mailbox from Copy This Mail That
And more by Saturday!

What better way to spend your weekend than fishing to win cash & prizes while benefiting a local charity!

There’s a new derby leader in town…


Jeff Audet, owner of FISHBONES Guide Service on Camano Island, brought in an enormous 23lb 0oz Blackmouth today! This fish of course takes the lead in the Elger Bay Grocery running derby from Glen Helton with his 17lb 3oz fish that was caught back in November. There’s still 2 weeks left for all of you other anglers to get in on the derby action(must wait 3 days before weighing a fish though) with our wrap-up happening on Saturday, April 30th. Just think, this fish could’ve been yours if you had been Jeff’s customer today… 360-913-3107.
