Kenny Regan, of Seward, shows off some silvers caught during the Seward Silver Salmon Derby going on through Sunday. The 2019 Derby is dedicated to Monty and Florita Richardson, longtime Alaskans who helped shape Seward’s charter fishing industry and participated in in the Salmon Derby for six decades. Monty ran his charter business well into his 80s and passed away this spring at 101 years old.
