A 22.56-pound chinook landed by Ben Truscott won the $5,000 first prize in this year's Bellingham Puget Sound Anglers Salmon Derby.

Truscott's salmon made the ladder late in the morning of Saturday besting by just over six ounces a king caught by Ryan Kies the previous day one of the annual three-day angling contest.

Kies fish, in turn, clung to the second place prize rung with a similar six plus ounce advantage over Guy Bertilson's third place fish, a 21.72-pound chinook. The two runner up fish garnered $2,500 and $1,000.

Winner of the PSA derby kid's division was Alex Davis, who posted a 17.12 pound salmon. P:arker Hanson and Patrick Mills took the second and third place prizes in the youth section with 14.98-pound and 13.12 pound fish, respectively.

Two hidden weight prizes of $500 each went to Joe Rude and Hunter Shaw for their 10.60- and 7.44-pound which came closest to the preselected secret qualifying weights.

This year's $500 Kathy Kaiser Memorial Award, given to chapter member landing the biggest salmon went to Aaron Jensen for a 16-pound chinook.

Four hundred tickets for this year's event were sold and contestants entered a total 152 salmon, and 25 in the kid's section.
