70th Derby Results
Well, it's a wrap. The Derby was a great affair with lots of typical OCLTC Derby drama. It started with IRMA affecting travel plans and 3 anglers dropped out. Jay Depotter, in the mix down in South Florida, actually made it up for day 2 and 3 of the Derby. Great effort!
Danny Doane wins with 7 white marlin. He had three fish on day one, 3 fish on day two and 1 fish on day three. 4 of his fish were doubles! This was just enough to edge out Ed Joy and John Simmonds, both with six fish as well as Richard Barrazotto and Jim Motsko (who caught a pair of Blues on Day 3) also with 600 points.
The fishing was slow for NC standards. But it turned on for day 2 and Depotter's arrival. A reward for the hurricane. It went right back to slow for most on Day 3.
A Special thank you to both John Bailey and Jerry Lynn Bailey for all of their hard work.
It was a wonderful event and everyone had a great time.
