WEEK 7 TOP 10

I decided this morning to take a picture and inspect Dave Hills leading 31.98 lb. chinook in St.Catherines in case it held on to win this the final week of the Derby.
It was a pleasure meeting Dave and his fishing partner Guy and Dave's male Chinook checked out fine.

On my journey home I received a call from Bluffers to be told that we had a new leader.
I met John Farrace and his fishing buddy Gerry Mariani at the weighin station to see John's
32.48 lb. salmon.I checked the weight, tickets and did a gut check on the female Chinook.
Congratulations John you are our official winner of week 7 of the 2017 GOSD and will be presented with a cheque for $10,000 on awards day at J.C. Saddington Park in Port Credit September 16th.

Congratulations also goes to our Great Grand Prize Oleksandra Linkov who has won the 
2017 TOYOTA 4RUNNER with his 35.92 lb. Chinook.

All our top 10 Winners from all 7 weeks are invited to participate in the $5,000
CANADIAN TIRE CHAMPIONSHIP SHOOTOUT in Port Credit on September 16th.

Siera and I would like to thank all our weighin stations for doing a phenomenal job this year.
Your nightly reports were both accurate and timely.
