•Small but big enough to make the top four
By Randi Somers
Although the 358.8 pounder landed by Chad Aldridge June 19 still holds the lead in the Chamber of Commerce Jackpot Halibut Derby, there are two new place holders in the September line up this week.
Dale Lichty of Miller, S.D. now holds second place with a 173.6 pound halibut landed Sept. 10 while fishing with Capt. Rob Hyslip of Big Bear Halibut Charters aboard Bear Force 1. William Beirne, of Tehachapi, Calif., caught a 91.2 pounder Sept. 7 fishing with Capt. Eric Lehm of North Country Charters aboard the Storm Petrel capturing fourth place.
Jeff Van Landingham of Eagle River stills holds first with his 202.6 pounder caught Sept. 4 aboard the Tillie Jane while fishing with Capt. Jeff Cundiff of Good Time Charters. Third place goes to Sharon Chelewski of Grand Junction, Colo. She caught a 92.2 pounder Sept. 3 while fishing with Capt. Brett Weaver of Homer Ocean Charters aboard the Diamond Cape.
Derby coordinator Paula Frisinger reports that no new released fish have been entered in that contest and no tagged fish have been caught so far this month.
