With a number of boat limits taken last week, the pinkfin run appears to be peaking just before the Memorial Day Weekend Pinkfin Derby to be sponsored by the Stockade Market in Winchester Bay.
As a thank you to our customers we are again hosting our annual Pink Fin Derby over Memorial weekend. Last year’s winner walked away with a new fishing pole for being the person who caught the largest pink fin perch over the Memorial Day weekend.
As we grow so did our derby… This year every day of the Memorial Day Weekend is a separate derby with its own daily big fish prize. There is also a separate prize for the overall derby champion… the person with the heaviest 3 fish caught during the 3-day event!!!
All participants must register at the Stockade Market and Tackle before participating in the derby. Once registered you are in for the whole 3-day event. Registration begins at 6:00am on Saturday May 28th.
Entry into derby is $2.00 per person. Any customer who makes a minimum $5 purchase will earn a free entry for the derby. (Alcohol and tobacco products excluded)
Participants must then return to the Stockade Market on each day during the scheduled weigh in times with their largest fish to submit it for weighing.
Only one fish may be submitted per person on each day of the event.
Weigh in times are as follows-
Saturday May 28th 11:00am – 6:00pm
Sunday May 29th 11:00am – 6:00pm
