The Slam’n Salmon Derby took place this last weekend in Brookings. Contestants were trying to catch the largest salmon they could in the three days. Leroy Blodgett ended up winning with a 36.3lb chinook. That single fish netted the fisherman $5000 as the biggest fish caught during the three days. Mary Ann Silversten caught the largest combined weight, weighing in 4 fish for a total of 71.8lbs. Overall 461 entrants caught 72 fish.
