It was 30$ to enter. Not sure how many folks entered, but was definitly worth the entry fee, lots of door prizes and seemed well organized.

Only problem I had was it was supposed to be a catch and release derby, which it really wasn't.

I heard rumor that there were around 800 entries but there were a ton more fisherman than that. I had only one bite but the 3rd prize fish was caught 50 yards from me.

The biggest fish gets $2000 2nd gets $1000 3rd gets $500.biggest youth pike got $100. largest White fish got $400 and youth whitefish was $100. There were 900 tickets sold. Great time had by most. Good for the family. the top 3 fish were 32.5LBS, 29.3LBS and 27LBS. The youth pike was 18.8LBS.

Adults is $30, kids is $10. Usually between 500 - 1000 people depending on the weather. Usually lots of safe ice, but not always. Tons of GOOD draw prizes. New rules a little schetchy, but lots of fish most of the time.
