Lee Welch caught the 5th tagged fish from prior years’ events on Sunday. There have been 17 single tagged fish redeemed for prize money, 7 caught by anglers without entry tickets and one fileted before the tag was noticed. Two of the 5 big money fish have been caught: the $25,000 and one of the $5,000 fish. It has been a record year for tagged fish catches in the 6th year of the Derby.
Three big money fish (1 at $10,000 and 2 at $5,000) remain in the lake. The 20th single tagged fish of 2013 will win $1000. The Derby continues through May 12 and tickets remain on sale throughout the event. There is still a lot of money to win!
