From left: Matt Turley, 14, of Pauslbo, Wash., AJ Edwards, Sarah Edwards and Zach Turley pose by a 73-inch-long, 205-pound halibut that Turley caught last Sunday near Southern Lynn Canal. It took all four to subdue the fish and get it in the boat. The group was competing in the annual U.S. Coast Guard fishing derby, but it took them so long to fight the fish, they missed the weigh-in deadline by about 45 minutes. The fish was caught on AJ's boat, the Three Chickadees, named after his three daughters. courtesy of aJ Edwards
