Anglers from far and wide will be gassing up their boats and tying on bait this weekend for the 2009 Slam’n Salmon Ocean Derby at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Meanwhile, the 10-day commercial salmon season continues out of Crescent City Harbor through Monday.

The sixth installment of the Brookings event — which was canceled last year due to no ocean salmon season — runs from Friday to Sunday, and event organizer and Port Commissioner Jim Relaford said interest in this year’s derby is excellent.

“We’re already 100 entries above last year at this time,” he said. “Typically we have about 400 entries by now, but we already have 496 or so.”

That includes anglers from as far away as New York state and Florida.

“We’re planning on 900 fishermen this year.”
