Talk about Big Fish!

Some 200 anglers aboard 52 boats raised $215,000 for the Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Since 2007, Fish for a Cure has donated $600,000 — more than half of its $1 million fundraising pledge.
An 18-pound rockfish earned Captain Cyrus Lashgari and his crew aboard OSMC first place of $2,000, which they donated back. Leading this year’s Captains Challenge in fundraising was David Jenkins and the crew of Luki Belle, who collected $20,384.
