Wilson Derby, Week 7: Nibler nets weekly prize, holds on to 2nd place

It's a beauty, but... Kevin Klein’s 14.19 pound catch wasn’t quite enough to edge out Justin Nibler for the Wilson derby’s weekly prize, in Week 7 competition.

Justin Nibler snared a 14.66-pounder to take home the weekly prize in Week 7 of the Frank Wilson Memorial Fishing Derby, a $75 gift certificate from Kings Marine.

With the prize winning catch, Nibler also kept claim on second place on the leader board with three weeks to go in the annual 10-week fishing derby. But perhaps best of all, he edged out fishing buddy Kevin Klein, by only .37 pounds, to take on the weekly award and to keep hold of the runner-up position.

“I bumped him the week before, so I guess turn about is fair play,” said Klein, the derby’s Week 6 winner. “That’s when this tournament gets fun…watching that leader board change.”
