Ken Anderson leads coho derby

  • Sep. 25, 2006 9:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Sandspit Rod and Gun Club-The derby is now half over with half to go. Better weather, more fisher-folks and more fish made for a great second weekend Sept. 23 and 24. Ray’s sourdough pancakes continue to be a Sunday morning (8-11 am) delight. Gerry with a mouthful is still able to talk, not a real surprise.
The second weekend standings:
1. Ken Anderson 17 lbs 9 oz
2. Art Wagenstein 17 lbs 3 oz
3. Verna Hunter 16 lbs
4. Daryl Wourms 15 lbs 8 oz
5. Bert Salanski 15 lbs 7 oz
6. Alex Matson 15 lbs 6 oz
7. Chris DieBold 15 lbs 3 oz
8. Susan Standbridge 13 lbs 12 oz
9. Jason Wourms 12 lbs 13 oz
10. Bob Botel 12 lbs 6 oz
The top lady is Verna Hunter, and the top juniors are Christine Salanski (14 lbs 11 oz) and Carter Olson (12 lbs). Weekend winner is Ken Anderson with his 17 lb 9 oz whopper.
There were 62 fish weighed in on the weekend, and 76 fish to date. It’s good to see the Ladies and Juniors make their presence known with some nice fish weighed in.
The ‘eau de skunk’ is still present at Copper Bay, however the new vice is dice and hopefully a change of luck. With two weekends left there is still a lot of opportunity to make the board. Good food, good fishing, good people and a good time at Copper Bay, so come join the derby.
