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 hotels 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.
Western Outdoor News and the city of Lake Havasu are proud to be hosting the 32nd anniversary of the Lake Havasu Striper Derby this year.
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.
If last year’s Striper Derby provided any indication of the popularity of the annual tournament in terms of both angling appeal and prize packages, this year’s event — slated for Saturday and Sunday, May 17th and 18th — stands to be bigger than ever.
Whether you are a serious Open Division fishing team, or you fish the with your non-fishing wife, 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.
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 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%).
As always we will once again have the ever popular “BLIND BOGEY” contest running on both Saturday and Sunday. $40 each day of each entry 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 can 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 3 categories... "Husband / Wife", "Adult / Son and or "Adult / Daughter" categories.
