Wasilla's Don Childs became the fourth new leader in the Seward Silver Salmon Derby since Saturday when he bagged a 17.13-pounder aboard the Troublemaker in Thumb Cove on Monday morning.

Childs pushed Palmer's Richard Jensen and his 16.67-pound catch from Sunday into second place, and Anchorage's Nick Hunter is in third with a catch of 16.05 pounds. Last year's winning fish weighed 16.14 pounds.

Competition comes to a close Sunday, with the winner claiming a $10,000 prize and second place taking $5,000.

Derby tickets are still available for $10 per day through sales outlets in the Seward boat harbor.
