Western Outdoor News is very excited to announce that the Lake Havasu Striper Derby is back at the London Bridge Resort this year. We will have docks for the boats weighing in their bags of stripers and plenty of parking for cars and boat trailers near the hotel's convention center for our awards and check-in functions. So get signed up now and get ready to fish in the sun at the Lake Havasu Striper Derby.



WON will be hitting the Havasu heat in May to dole out the prizes, cash and fun in the sun, to the hundreds of participants certain to make the annual trip.


The Striper Derby festivities kick off on Friday afternoon at the team check-in held at the London Bridge Resort, located at 1477 Queens Bay in Lake Havasu City. When teams check-in they may purchase event t-shirts, make partner changes and enter options if not already entered. Late sign-ups will also be taken at this time, but to make sure your are signed up it's always best to do so in advance, either online or by calling the WON offices. After check-in, a brief Captain's Meeting will take place to go over event rules and weekend activities.



The future of fishing and their cute Plano tackle boxes


Whether you are a serious Open Division fishing team, fish the with your non-fishing wife, or are fishing with your kids, the Lake Havasu Striper Derby gives everyone a chance to win. There are cash prizes for random weights in the blind bogey, random drawings for tackle prizes,  and trophies and awards for cash and great prizes for the biggest stringers and biggest stripers caught during the two day tournament. And anyone can win the new boat and motor just by entering the tournament.


Bob Jones, from Riverside, with Tournament Director Billy Egan, has been to every Striper Derby for the past 30 years!


The entry fee at $175 per team and it includes your basic entry and chance to win the boat, trophies and many other tackle prizes, including your Striper Derby hat and t-shirts for both team members. But most people enter the great options which are $40.00 each day for the the blind bogeys. And this year $20 per team will also go into pool and will be paid to the five biggest stripers caught during the tournament based on 1st ( 40%), 2nd (30%) 3rd (15%), 4th (10%) and 5th (5%).  So for only $275 your team is "all in."


The Husband-Wife team of Bill and Patti Darling found themselves at the top of that Division's standing fishing their first tournament ever


We will once again have the ever popular “BLIND BOGEY” contest running on both Saturday and Sunday. The $40 entry cost for each day goes into the blind bogey fund and gives the team a chance at winning a share of the random blind bogey weights. So whatever sized striper you catch, bring it in and weigh it and you might just be a cash winner, too.



As always, we will have prizes and trophies for the top 15 teams in "Open" division, and top prizes in each of the other 2 categories: "Husband / Wife" and "Adult / Child."
