Homer man wins $18,018 in winter king salmon derby


 

 

So it was on Saturday at Alaska’s biggest winter fishing extravaganza, the one-day Homer Winter King Salmon Tournament, where some 858 anglers came out to enjoy the sunshine and promise of warmer days ahead.

Among them was Sara Ross of Anchorage, the 12-year-old daughter of last year’s champion, Scott Ross.

Sara did dad proud. Not only did her 23.1-pound king salmon win the kids’ prize of $300, she took seventh place overall worth another $3,432 to the family fishing budget.

Dad’s winner, however, was more than 15 pounds heavier, so he didn’t have to eat too much humble pie.
