I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the Whittier Fish Derby has changed the Halibut Derby this year to a "slot limit" fish. In light of the recent concerns over a declining Halibut population, Whittier is encouraging leaving the large breeders in the water.
Any fish between 45-65 pounds can be entered in the derby. The fish closest to a random drawn weight (between 45 -65 pounds), whether it be over or under, will determine the prize winners.
Lots of monthly prize drawings will be held this year for all those that buy a derby ticket.
The prize winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) place for the silver salmon derby will still be based on the largest fish by weight.
