Well folks, it was the worst weather I have ever fished in a derby or fish-in. It was very cold with wind gusts up to about 45 mph plus several heavy rain showers. The fishing was very tough for everyone except Carper Rick. It was particularly tough for the freeliners due to the heavy winds.

Carper Rick was really on using his hair rigged maize covered with a bread ball. As you can see by the scores below, no one else was really into the fish. There were 13 entrants and only 7 of them caught fish. My wife Mary (fishngal) should get an endurance award for fishing the whole 8 hours (less a very short lunch/warm up break in the car) in the horrendous wind, rain and cold.

Regardless  of the totally nasty weather, everyone said they had a good time. For some reason, Carper Rick seemed particularly overjoyed. I guess that Rick's going home with $60 in jackpot money plus the $20 gift certificate from Lakeshore Bait & Tackle in Clearlake might have had something to do with it.

Here are the final scores:
