The Fidalgo-San Juan Islands chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers is pleased to announce the 2013 Resurrection Derby at Friday Harbor.
For a mere $400 entry fee, those 100 teams (with up to 4 anglers per team) lucky enough to get a spot will vie for $15,000 in guaranteed purse money – offering 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. 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.
Derby planners have scheduled the derby to coincide with the opening week of the winter fishing season in the San Juan Islands, which is a selective fishery. One of our 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 by club and community volunteers will go directly towards salmon enhancement projects.
