                   2013 DERBY

 65 hearty fisherpersons and their crews braved high seas and gusty winds on May 3rd and 4th in an effort to catch the "biggest fish".  At the finish, it was Richie Burgess from Burgess, VA with a beautiful 41.14 pound rockfish who took home the big prize. 

   The best human interest story was that of Liz Thomas and her crew who challenged the high seas with a 20 foot boat and, despite being totally drenched, managed to drag in a 27.22 pound Rockfish which was good enough to take the 2nd place money on Saturday.

    Congratulations to all participants and thank you very much for supporting Smith Point Sea Rescue.
