The Derby thanks the hundreds of anglers who entered slips for the Roberto Germani Catch and Release special awards. We drew 8 winners (1 for each species, shore and boat) and thank Costa Del Mar Sunglasses and The Fisherman Magazine and Cheeky Fishing for their support of this Catch and Release element of the Derby. Tim Sheran won the release photo contest.
The Derby thanks everyone who sponsored, helped, donated, and participated this year and especially all who attended our Awards Ceremony at Farm Neck and helped set a new fund-raising record for our Scholarship Raffle and Silent auction. We'll see you next year, for the 71st Derby! Until then, tight lines to all and thank you.
