I would say the wind is not our friend today, as Willie's Tug declines an invitation to cruise to a nearby island in the San Juans, and we see quite a big of chop in the marina. But here they go -- I hear Lopez Sound is good fishing grounds.
Sailboats take advantage of the breezes.
The leader board posts the cash prizes, with first prize of $15,000. Motivation!
Each fish is weighed, inspected for wild caught and tagged.
Some hopefuls are placed on ice.
The tournament goes through Sunday noon and the last fisherman who thinks he has a winner runs down the dock for the weigh-in. The fish is in his right hand, almost hidden from the camera.
The winner caught a 24 pounder.
Now the processing begins, and the eating will be soon!
