Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
Brewster Derby organizers once again did an excellent job of putting everything together to make the event run smoothly.
There was a brand new double wide launch this year, with a 300-foot dock, that made getting on and off the water much faster, too. Organizers also got a record amount of sponsor support this year.
The total amount of cash and prizes that was handed out was $26,600. J.D. Smith, organizer and master of ceremony during the awards did a great job of mentioning and thanking all of the sponsors.
Okay, who won?
First place for biggest fish was won by Mark Main, with a 32-pound fish. It was turned in on Friday and held its position all weekend.
Second place was claimed by Lance Manning with a king weighing 28 pounds, and third place went to John Simmons with a 27-pound fish. The Simmons clan took home a pile of cash. They also won the Individual Daily Sidepot and Team Daily Sidepot on Friday.
On day three John won the Individual Daily Sidepot and they took the Team Daily Sidepot. John Simmons also won the Derby Total Weight Sidepot with 121 pounds, 13 ounces! Cody Simmons won the Youth Division with a 22-pound king. I think we will be seeing the Simmons family again next year.
