It was another great year for the Lockeport Sea Derby, one of the longest running of its kind in Nova Scotia.

This was the 22nd year for the sea derby and there was a good turnout.

There were almost 200 registered (50 youths, 144 Adults) for the competition, all vying for first place in the largest shark, mackerel and ground fish.

Charlotte Scott, event coordinator, said that organizers tried a few events on the wharf this year that went over well, including a mackerel toss in which competitors had three chances to toss a mackerel into a bucket.

“The kids loved this,” she said.

Winners of the 2014 Lockeport Sea Derby are as follows


Youth Largest Mackerel- Tanner Townsend (1.14 lbs.) (15")

Youth Largest Ground Fish- Tanner Townsend (4.1 lbs.) (24")

Adult Largest Mackerel- Derek Adema (1.28 lbs.) (15.5")

Adult Largest Ground Fish - Emily Swim (4.9 lbs.) (25.25")

Adult Largest Shark - Patrick Mullen (332.89 lbs.) (11.3 Feet)
