Crappie Derby Update – Day 25 – May7

Calvett Pettis caught the 18th single tagged fish of the Derby on Tuesday, worth $100, and getting us closer to the 20th fish worth $1000.

There have been 18 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!
