Staff Sgt. Stephen Green from San Clemente (left, pictured with Capt. Brian Wooley) caught this 40-pound halibut Oct. 20 aboard Sum Fun, out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing. The catch makes him the current leader in Dana Wharf’s annual Halibut Derby — and if his fish holds the Number 1 spot at the end of the competition March 31, he will be guaranteed half the prize money, averaging more than $2,300. A Fish-Off is scheduled for April 6, 2014, in which the top 25 halibut anglers will compete for the balance of the prize money on an free one-day trip from Dana Wharf.
