There were no tagged fish catches on Wednesday. Reports of fish caught by non ticket holders continue to come in. We have received two more reports of catches, bringing the total the 9. Anglers who declined to purchase a ticket have missed out on $3500 in winnings.
There have been 18 single tagged fish redeemed for prize money, 9 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!
