Anderson still on top of derby heap

  • Oct. 2, 2006 2:00 p.m.

Submitted by Sandspit Rod and Gun–Wow! What a weekend, good weather, good fishing and a good turnout on the water and at the Copper Bay shack. The fishing provided some big fish and new names on the board. The leaders are looking over their shoulders as the big fish keep coming in. Sourdough pancakes by Ray brought out a big group on Sunday and he ran out of ingredients to get them all fed. Eddy (the dog) got four and wanted more but that was all the mistakes.
