Default Merrimack angler gets top prize at fishing derby.

MEREDITH At his day job, Dan Harris of Merrimack takes to the skies as a pilot for Continental Airlines. In his spare time, he loves delving his fishing line into New Hampshire lakes and ponds.

The Great Meredith Rotary Fishing Derby grand prize winner now has another frontier to conquer: land. For catching the largest tagged rainbow trout of the weekend tournament, Harris won a John Deere XUV 825i Camo, an all-terrain crossover utility vehicle valued at $24,000.

Default 1st prize rainbow

We stopped by about noon on Sunday and got a look at the 1st prize tagged rainbow. Not a lot of activity out on the ice at Meredith as can be seen.

Alton Bay however was very busy and today there were hundreds of what looked like ice gopher holes. Abandoned circles of ice chips. (sorry no photo)

Question Third place tagged trout

Hello,
First time user. I was wondering why the third place trout did not have a time is was caught. All the articles I've read of first and second place in multiple articles with times , but no time on third. I may be a little selfish because I was in third on Saturday and ended up in forth. I really wanted to know when I was taken out.

Welcome to the forum. I did look at a blow-up of my original photo of the leader board but could not read the tag on the #3 fish.

Default 2/100ths and " The Cusk"

You would be surprised at how often those 1/100th's play into the results. I (my group) have been knocked out with less than 3 minutes to go and a few hours to go and by less than a 1/10th.

Did anyone do well with the Cusk? Seemed to be in deep water because we struggled with Cusk lines and did worse while jigging. For the most part, we could not find them in our usual haunts.
