    Default NEW Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby leader

    NEWS RELEASE / AUGUST 19, 2014 FROM THE HOMER JACKPOT HALIBUT DERBY

    Sixteen-year-old Jackson Hobbs, from Franklin, ID, blew the rest of the field out of the water in the 2014 Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby when he brought a 335-lb. butt to be weighed in at Derby Headquarters in the last half hour of the fishing day today, August 19, 2014. "It only took a half hour to bring in", Jackson said, who was fishing with Captain Travis Larson on Alaska Premier Sportfishing's charter boat Venturess. Jackson is in Alaska on a trip sponsored by his grandfather as a reward for becoming an Eagle Scout.

    The winner of the Jackpot prize for the largest fish receives a $10,000 payout, plus .$50 for every Derby ticket sold. Last year's Jackpot winner went home with $21,281.50. In its 28th year, the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby is the longest running halibut fishing competition, with the largest total payout in Alaska.
