Well, the 69th Annual Bass Derby is now history and congrats go out to the lucky winners, Andy Douens of Oakley who caught a 291” striped bass, the exact target length , to claim the $1000 first prize followed by Michael Allen of Antioch who hooked a 47.96” sturgeon to claim a prize of $500 and Donald Jefferies of Colfax who claimed $500 for the largest salmon at 23 1/4 pounds. Conditions were perfect this year with very little wind and warm temperatures. Incidentally most of the winning fish were caught during the night time hours, mainly at anchor tossing threadfin shed, mudsuckers, eel and fresh salmon roe. The host of the event was the Isleton Chapter of the California Striped Bass Association. The fishing was best off Sherman Island, Decker Island and Broad Slough. The best sturgeon fishing took place under The Powerlines and most of the king salmon came from the Rio Vista Bridge to the ferry slip on trolled, double-bladed Silvertron and Willow spinners with either red or chartreuse beads. The Randy Pringle Open Bass Derby took place out on the Delta with the winning team taking home $20,000 for a 2 day total of 44 pounds. With an entry fee of $200 the event drew 199 participants for the 2 day event.
