The 23rd Annual Homer Winter King Tournament was held on Saturday, March 19th.  448 boats with 1508 registered anglers fished in near perfect conditions in pursuit of Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, the king salmon.

In the seven hour event, 448 king salmon were caught and registered. The largest was 26.45lbs and the payout for the winner was an amazing $31,668. The total payout for the tournament was over $180,000.

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday in Homer, Alaska.
