Henry's perch derby: Jumbo details

| No Comments | 1 TrackBack

``Jumbo Jimmy'' Baczek repeated as champ at Henry's eighth annual perch derby at Northerly Island on Saturday.


``Jumbo Jimmy'' had the biggest perch (1.5 pounds) and the heaviest total weight (10.6 pounds), to solidify his standing as not only one of the great lakefront fisherman but one of the best in Chicago fishing.

But he was not alone at pulling out some nice perch.


Second place for total creel went to Jorge Negrete (left) with 8.55 pounds and third went to James Foster (right) with 8.3.

There were 58 fishermen from five states, the most distant state being New Jersey.

This continues to be a great event and celebration of Northerly Island.
