Anglers From All Over New England In NEK Fishing Derby

February 17, 2014

Mark Prue took first place in Ron Wrights 10th annual Fishing Derby. This 21.7 pounder was caught in South Bay right here in Newport. That fine catch got Prue a check for $750. Not a bad days pay for an enjoyable weekend of fishing. (Photo by Ken Wells)

DERBY - As the Elks Club in Derby got more and more packed with fisherman, their catches, friends, outdoorsman and locals looking for a great meal, event organizer Ron Wright looked over the throng.
“You know we’ve come a long way since our first year. This is out tenth now and it’s at the point where we are getting fisherman from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York and of course a great group from Vermont.”
