There were a total of 29 fish weighed in on Dec. 27 as the Prince Rupert Lions Club hosted its 20th annual Marc Desautels Memorial Blue Knuckle Derby.

The $1,000 first prize went to Kieran Kirkbright who caught a 21.68 pound Spring salmon while second place went to young Jonian Mack, who weighed in an 18.2 pound Spring salmon (seen below accepting the prize from Bronwyn Luckham). Due to some confusion at the weigh-in, there was two $300 third-prize awards handed out - one went to Richard Mellis with a 15.54 pound Spring salmon and the other went to Graig Brown with a 13.76 pound Spring.

Over 340 tickets were sold for the derby, with Dawn Blake's name being drawn for the return trip for two to Vancouver courtesy of Hawkair.
