King Salmon Sportfishing Derby wrapped up with the awards banquet last week.
Judi Kidder, the tournament administrator, says about 12-thousand dollars was
raised for the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association, which runs the salmon hatchery
here. She says the fish that turned out to be the biggest was caught on May 31st,
very early in the tournament.

biggest fish ... from Placerville, California.")
Kidder is quick
to add that there weren't just a few prizes for the largest fish - the
tournament had many different categories:

prizes were handed out at a banquet last week, where the segment from the TV
show Hog-quest was played:

over the winter she will consider extending next year's tournament through the
