Bothell man takes top prize in Edmonds Coho Derby


The Edmonds Coho Derby was held Sunday at the Edmonds Marina, and the winning 12 pound-12.48 ounce coho was caught by Daniel Humphries of Bothell and earned him $5,000, our online news partner The Seattle Times reports.

Humphries was fishing near Double Bluff in northern Puget Sound when he hooked the coho at 7:45 a.m. on a green squid with a green flasher, the Times said.

“We caught and released a chinook and got another 6 or 7 pound coho, and this was the first time I’ve ever placed in a derby,” Humphries said. “I did the Everett Coho Derby last year.”
