I've fished this derby for years. It was 30lbs when I started and it was won. It went to 31lbs and it was owon a couple years back. Now it 32. Pretty fair considering they have payed out twice.

There was a 31 and change a year or two ago that just missed by a once or two.

Its an awesome derby that supports a great club and puts all species in play and the cost to enter is amazing. I can't wait for April.

no
Family ticket is 2 spouses (or common law partners) and their kids 16 and under
