Fishermen working Dia- mond Pond, the Broadkill River and Wagamons Pond in the catch and release tournament had a good day. They took a total of 114 fish in the annual tournament. Top winners won cash and prizes, many of them from local busi- nesses. Sylvester and Wilkinson took first place with a total of 12.96 pounds.
