Thread: Homer Elks Winter King Derby

  1. #1

    Smile Homer Elks Winter King Derby

    This Derby is for a worthy cause, and a lot of fun, weather permitting (as always). It's not nearly as big as the Homer Winter King Derby in March, but I guess that makes the odds of winning better. Come on down (and stay at The Land's End).

    Just brought the boat back from homer or I'd be down. Anyone have an open seat? Found one of the bows broken on the trailer when I got back. Hopefully a new trailer as soon as I can get a couple quotes.

    Question Seriously Considering It

    But my boat is put away. Are there charters participating, or are all of the boats private?

    Sounds like success rates in late fall are WAY better than early spring, eh? In March it took almost 10 times that many anglers to catch just a few more fish.

    just talked to my buddy who is booked for the tourney, he said it looks like a similar success rate today. he has 3 so far.
    most winter kings are #12-18, so the average is spot-on.
    there have been quite a few fish scattered around the bay, lots are pretty close.
    i know that with the fish close my friend will go with only a couple guys on the boat, so you don't need a big party to book a trip.
