Last year was by far our best year ever with just over 400 kids ranging from ages 3-15. It was so great to see a full shoreline filled with smiling faces!
As you know, the derby is ran strictly off of donations which get the kids each a fishing pole and reel just for registering!
Donations also make food, prizes, trophies, kayaks, face painting, music, and more possible! This will be our 20th Annual, so we will looking to having an even more successful year and make this one to remember, but they all are. If you make a donation it is Tax deductible
This is one of the best fishing derby’s around and one you wouldn’t want to miss!
We also have a couple of fun surprises this year as well, but won’t give that away yet!
Something to make it even more fun for your family, we have 10 cabins, dozens of RV sites as well as tent sites that we have for rent! But be sure to get yours quick, they go fast and we book up months before the derby!
Also we have pontoons, row boats, motor boats, pedal boats, and kayaks for rent.
Hope to see you all there for another memorable year! Let’s get to 500 kids this year!
