‘He’ is Todd Gilbo of Georgetown, Mass., the grand prize winner in the Adult Salmon category with a catch weighing 3.98 pounds and measuring 22.625 inches. He will receive a $10,000 prize for landing the top fish.
The third annual Rick Davis Sportsman’s Award, presented to the fisherman whose salmon is closest in weight to the average weight of salmon landed during the derby, went to James Day of Parsonsfield, Maine, who landed a salmon weighing 2.94 pound and measuring 21.125 inches.
“Many families take part, and people who fished it as children are back here with their kids,” said LaBrie, who has headed up the Derby since the Laconia Rotary Club took over responsibility for it when its founder, Rick Davis, stepped down four years ago.
“We require all prize winners to be present to win,” said LaBrie. “As we handed out the daily prizes, there was one junior who was not present at the time we called his name. We announced his name three times, and then moved on to the next entry. I hate to see it when a child doesn’t get what he or she earned.”
