Coast MagazineTim and Ila Dillon have been organizing the Human Powered Fishing Derby for 5 years now, and it has become quite the annual event for Seldovians and visitors alike!

This Memorial Day weekend will be the 6th Annual Human Powered Fishing Derby in Seldovia, and if you think fishing is fun out in the big ocean in a big boat – you will be pleasantly surprised with the maneuvering and skill required when you fish from a kayak, or small boat – it is a whole new experience and almost a whole new sport!  Landing a big fish has a whole different meaning when it has the power to pull you out to sea, with only oars and strong arms to resist the fish’s fright and flight!
