New leaders join Jackpot Halibut Derby August standings

By Randi Somers

“Where has the summer gone?” Jackpot Halibut Derby coordinator Paula Frisinger asks rhetorically as she submits the mid-August standings.
Although Soldotna’s Chad Aldridge still leads with the 350.8 pounder caught June 19, some new monthly leaders have joined the winners.
Jeanne Gitchenl of Walker, Minnesota holds first place in the August standings with a 271.8 pounder caught August 4 fishing with Captain George Eishens aboard his boat the Adah Venture.
In second place, Nicholas Carrico of Oroville California caught a 268.8 pounder August 2 while fishing with Tim Berg’s Alaska Fishing Adventures aboard the Grand Alaska with Captain Fred Berney. In third is Homer’s Kasey Dunkin with a 123.8 pounder caught August 6 aboard the Sorceress with Captain Peter Karwowski of Magic Water Charters.
In addition to leading the August standings, Gitchenl is the new August Lady Angler.
So far there have been no released fish nor any tagged fish this month.
