The sixth annual Salmon Classic Invitational at Roche Harbor Resort is Feb. 5-7.
The blackmouth derby is a three-day sportfishing event that attracts anglers from all over the Northwest and Canada. There are more than $25,000 in cash and prizes.
Cash prizes include $10,000, first place; $5,000, second place; $1,500, third place; $2,000, mystery fish and best boat; $1,500, total weight.
Each night, donated prizes are drawn from the Northwest’s favorite fishing tackle and accessory companies, i.e. Frabill, Scotty, Shimano, Laminglass, Simrad, and Berkely. In addition, each angler qualifies for the grand prize drawing for a top-of-the-line sport fishing boat package as a part of the Northwest Marine Trade Assocation Derby Series.
Derby entries are limited to 100 boats with four anglers per vessel. Entry fee is $600 per boat plus sales tax, which includes moorage and meals.
The 2008 derby sold out on Dec. 7, 2007.
