Friday was opening day of the 2014 Slam’n Salm’n Derby and one contestant had already bagged a 26-pound king.
The annual event is the single largest fundraiser for the Downtown Soup Kitchen.
Last year’s derby brought in more than $50,000.
The derby rules state contestants must be over the age of six, and anyone older than 16 has to have a current sports fishing license.
The soup kitchen staff say the fish being caught in this year’s derby are a much bigger than last year’s.
