Ranger 85 scores 345-pound bluefin!

35th anniversary edition of Lake Havasu event this weekend, May 13-14


Engel Coolers, Alaska fishing trips included in 1st place Striper Derby prize package

COOLER BACKPACKS FROM Engel are ideal for the outdoorsman, featuring a rugged, tear-resistant outer shell and a waterproof TPE coating for easy cleaning.

Numerous winners at the WON/Lake Havasu Striper Derby score big year after year, and 2017 will be no different, as the first place team at this May’s event will walk home pretty well loaded. Come this Sunday’s awards ceremony at the London Bridge Convention Center, the duo who tops the field with the most total poundage of striped bass at the conclusion of the two-day Derby are sure to be smiling ear to ear.

Included at the top of the 2017 first place prize package are a pair of fishing trips of a lifetime to Alaska, two high-end 80-quart Engel Coolers, a couple pairs of Costa Sunglasses and a pair of Lew’s rods and reels — Super-Duty Wide Speed-Spool baitcast reels armed on Custom Speed Stick Super-Duty rods — just to name a few. Those landing in the runner-up spot will earn a pair of Lew’s TP1 rods and BB2 reels, Costa shades and Engel backpacks as top prizes. Third through 10th place will also be headed home with some great gear from Striper Derby sponsors.

That’s not to mention the cold, hard cash that is up for grabs this coming weekend. Aside from a guaranteed 20 blind bogey checks going out at Sunday’s awards ceremony, there will also be checks prepared for the anglers who catch the five biggest linesides over the course of the two-day tournament, along with some big bucks going out for the heaviest three fish landed by anglers in the High Roller Division.

Throw that on top of the heap of raffle prizes set to be dished out to competing anglers — including the grand prize of a Klamath 16 EXW with a 40hp Suzuki on the back, Costa sunglasses, Plano tackle solutions and much more — and there are more than enough reasons to throw your hat in the ring this weekend. 

We hope to see you at Anderson Toyota on Friday and with a bulging bag of stripers at Saturday’s weigh-ins. Catch ya at Havasu!

Engel Coolers hit the mark 


ENGEL 80-QUART COOLERS are among the highlights of the prize package going out to the 1st place team at Striper Derby 2017.

The latest sponsor to join the 2017 Striper Derby fray, Engel Coolers has stepped in to award a quartet of both high-end Engel 80-quart coolers along with four Cooler BackPacks at this year’s event. Here are some of the reasons Engel leads the way in cooler technology:

— Rotational molding process allows for incorporation of features that makes the coolers stronger and more durable.

— Increased thickness of cooler’s sides, top and bottom combined with injected poly­urethane insulation dramatically increases cooler’s ice-keeping capabilities by days, or even weeks.

— Improved latches and molded-in, full-length hinge create ultra-tight seal to keep cooler cold for longer and keep you in the field or on the water as long as possible.

— Specially designed sloping floor and lowered drain hole allows for easy drainage.

— Multiple sizes for any application (from the 21-plus-quart Engel 25 to the cavernous 317-quart Engel 320).

— With the ability to keep food chilled for up to three weeks, outdoorsmen can get fish and game to the processer fresh as can be without worrying about spoilage.
