Homer Halibut Derby jackpot worth $46,000

Clayton McDowell of Eagle River is in line to receive more than $46,000 as the winner of the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby.

McDowell was fishing with Captain Glain Cook aboard the Sourdough, operated Homer Ocean Charters, on July 28 when he hooked his 347-pound trophy. Clayton initially wasn't going to buy a derby ticket, but ended up putting down his $10 at the urging of his wife, who also was fishing that day.

McDowell will receive his winnings at the derby banquet Sept. 14 at the Land's End Resort in Homer. The exact amount of his check will be calculated over the next few days after all ticket sales have been recorded.
