 DeTour "X" Derby Page

Team Theora from Marquette, Captained by Mark Hirvonnen, won $455 with the biggest Atlantic Salmon, while Rogers City based Team Dock Knockers placed again this year with $585 for total weight and third biggest fish in the 5th annual DeTour “X” Atlantic Derby.  

We had 28 boats participated in the 2010 DeTour "X" Atlantic Salmon Derby, it was a super day for fishing.  Mostly Eastern UP Teams showed up along with boats from Soo Ontario, East Lansing, Wolverine, Cheboygan, Rogers City, and Marquette.  Nine boats delivered 13 Atlantic Salmon in coolers to the final weigh-in ceremony.   The derby participants helped raise about $550 toward the support of the DeTour Fish Station and Possible Future Salmon Pen. 

Only Atlantic Salmon were counted for contest, 13 fish were weighed in, several boats had nice coolers of multiple species fish.  We saw Lake Trout, Steelhead, Chinook, along with the elusive Atlantics.  

The derby results were as follows:

First Place Fish Payout $455: 8.83lbs Team Theora, Marquette

Second Place Fish Payout $260: 8.205lbs, Team Sawmill, Rudyard

Third Place Fish Payout $130: 8.08 lbs, Team Dock Knockers, Rogers City

Total Cooler Weight Payout $455: 3 fish totaling 14lbs Dock Knockers from Rogers City.

Honorable mention for the total weight prize was Rudyard’s Team Sawmill with 2 fish at 11.465lbs.

Team Dock Knockers defended a previous 2rd place (2009) podium showing with captain Jayme Warwick and crew pocketing total prize winnings of $785 using their excellent fishing skills. They boated the heaviest cooler of the derby, along with a Third place fish and an individual “All Species” BFOD prize.    Dock Knockers, second time derby participants from Rogers City, said that they had a great time and planned to be back next year. Congratulations to all. 

 Thanks to all the participants, door prize donors (Death Wish Lures, Marinelock, Purple Door Studios, DeTour Village Inn, DNR), and the event sponsors, River Bend Resort, North Country Sports and Gifts.   Also thanks to the volunteers that helped to run this event.  We hope to see all the “X” Derby Salmon fishermen next year.
