Seventy five hopefuls were entered for the Feb. 16 fishing derby staged by Scotties Marina just north of Castlegar.

Fifteen fish were landed and weighed in the allotted time and when the clock struck 4 p.m. three winners had been decided.

Earning bragging rights enhanced by first prize money of $910 was Kim Perepolkin with a 12.13 pounder. Don Sutherland claimed second place with a 10.5 lb fish, good for $350.

Completing the winning trio was Walter Perepelkin whose 9 pounder netted $280 for his efforts.
