The derby is open to kids up to 14 years old.  At least one adult who is 21 years old and a lake property owner or guest must accompany the kids.  Individual anglers can fish from shore or in a boat and there can be more than one angler per boat.  Anglers will be fishing for two categories, Crappie/Bluegill and Catfish.  Trophies will be awarded for 1st and 2nd place for the heaviest total weight of 5 fish of each of the two categories and for Small Fry (smallest fish of all species).  Only Bluegill, Crappie, and Catfish can be caught.  NO BASS OR WALLEYES. 

We will also give away many great prizes, so everyone will be a winner.

Please do all you can to keep fish alive if you are not going to keep them. If you use a stringer, never hook through the gills, only the mouth.
