The Duluth Sail and Power Squadron doubled as a host and inspector during the 10th annual Captain's Platter Fishing contest on Saturday.

First, second, and third place awards were given to anglers in four divisions: Lake Trout, Walleye, Chinook Salmon, and Coho Salmon. They also offered free safety check to those who came to the event and wished to have their boats inspected.

"A lot of the fisherman I think are learning that there is more to having the right gear on board then a life jacket," said Todd Carlson, pass commander of the Duluth Sail and Power Squadron. "We try to teach as much as we can on safety."

The tournament drew more than 200 participants last year.
