Submitted by Sandspit Rod & Gun Club-What a wild and windy weekend, probably the worst weather ever for the start of the derby. Having said that, there were fish weighed in and food prepared. The Sunday sourdough pancake breakfast was a hit for those who made the trip out to Copper Bay. Thank you to Ray and his helpers, that was real dedication with the weather so bad. The top 10 is only the top three for this first weekend with two juniors also having weighed-in fish. The story is that David Putterill carried his fish to the weigh-master and it was hard to tell which was the fish and which was the boy. It is wonderful to see parents and kids out fishing together.1. Bob Botel: 11 lbs 13 oz.2. Jeremy Botel: 10 lbs 4 oz.3. Les Wourms: 10 lbs 4 oz.Jr. Jacey Pollard: 9 lbs 11 oz.Jr. David Putterill: 9 lbs 3 oz. With the early fall weather be especially careful. Out on the water be sure to wear your PFD and stay safe. Three weekends to go – good luck!
