36 lb. 3 oz. Chinook
Credit: Charter Westport
The Westport Catch of the week winner is Ray Jennings of Bothell. Ray was fishing on a Charterboat out of Westport on Monday August 27th when he landed this Season leading Chinook. The fish weighed in dressed at 36 pounds 3 ounces. We figured the fish to weigh 41 and a quarter pounds in the round, that's a nice fish. Ray won the Westport Charterboat Associations daily prize of $225 and is on the board for the largest Chinook of the season prize of $2500. The recent department of Fish and Wildlife's rule change allows us to now keep a Wild Coho in our bag of two fish. The wilds are plentiful so you are most assured to go home with at least one fish in your bag. Please contact www.charterwestport.com for more information and a complete list of booking service.
