    Homer AK/Captain Cook Hi

    Default Homer halibut derby

    Changes this year include the removal of the large fish over 50lb catch and release prizes due to lack of participation, I liked that part of the derby and since I'm not interested in killing a large old fish or catching baby chickens looking for a tagged one there's no reason for me to compete anymore, I talked to Paula and she said they may add something next year. The removal of the monthly biggest dead fish prize and going to a catch and release raffle was supposed to be about conservation towards encouraging anglers and adding incentive to release the larger declining population of breeders. If anyone is interested in bringing back the release category contact Paula at the chamber.

    Alaska - I wasn't born here, but I got here as soon as I could!


    Removing the over 50lb released category because there wasn't enough participation? So somehow they feel giving out less prizes will boost participation in the derby?
