Florida angler leads Homer derby June standings

James Mato of Marco Island, Fla., hooked a 273.8-pound fish on June 10 to lead the June monthly standings in the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby.

It was quite the catch for Mato, who is only 15 years old.

Second place belongs to David Baumann of Palmer, who caught a 238.4-pound fish on June 2. Tim Long of Owasso, Okla., is in third with a 235.8 fish landed on June 6.

Karen Shelpman of Mechanicsburg, Ohio, caught a 186.8-pound fish on June 10, good for fourth place, and James Rangitsch of Anchorage is in fifth place with a 186.0-pound fish landed on June 15.

The overall derby lead belongs to Ruth Armstrong of Eagle River, who landed a 306.4-pounder on May 31.

Two tagged fish were caught over the weekend by anglers who did not buy a derby ticket, missing out on a $1,000 and a $500 prize.

The derby also has a $10,000 released-fish prize, and just one entry in that category.
