24th Fishing Derby :  Whopper brings grand prize

Fifty-two boats entered the 24th annual Saipan Fishing Derby.  When the sirens wailed signalling the end of the two-day tournament, it was the Cabo Express skippered by Rep. Heinz Hofschneider that captured the grand prize, thanks to a 484 pound blue marlin.  Hofschneider also won the grand prize last year with a 288 pound marlin.  John T. Sablan on board the MV Gloria set a new record with a 52.85 wahoo.
