There are a few changes in this year’s event to point out. The secondary weigh-in location for the Tournament has been moved from Bridgeport Landing to the Roland Cooper State Park (on the point, down the hill from the pavilion.) For the Derby, there will be a $25,000 fish, $10,000 fish, and three $5,000 fish. Each of these is double tagged. All the prior year tagged fish are worth $50. The change this year in the Derby will be how the single tag, current year fish are valued. The current year, single tagged fish will be worth $100 each with the following exceptions: the 5th fish is worth $250, the $10th fish is worth $500, the 15th fish is worth $750, and the 20th fish is worth $1000.
