Don't put away your fishing gear just yet. It's Oktoberfish in Bayview again. Kick off is the auction Friday, October 2 at 7 pm at the Captain's Wheel Resort. That will be followed by the derby itself, Saturday & Sunday, October 3 & 4.
Entry fee is $25 per entrant, with all money raised to be given out to the various winners. You are invited to come down, bid on stuff you don't need, eat the free buffet (ticket holders only) and of course lie about the big one that got away. (I once had a fifty pound Kam, until someone produce a picture of it. Curses, foiled again.)
Prizes are as follows:
The first fish weighing more than last year's winner, 9 pounds, 10 ounces wins $100 1st prize goes to the largest Kamloop Trout 40% 2nd prize goes to the largest Mackinaw 30% 3rd prize goes to the 2nd largest Kamloop Trout 20% 4th prize goes to the 2nd largest Mackinaw 10%
Lest we forget, the 1st prize winner also gets possession of the traveling trophy for the year. Fish & Game is still awarding $15 per head for trout and Macks, so even if you aren't one of the big winners, you can still win. It is not advised, however, to detach the head before weigh-in.
Goods, Services, Gift Certificates and donations are needed for the auction, which proceeds will go into the pot for prizes. Tickets are available at the derby sponsor, Ralph's Internet Cafe and Friday night at the Auction. For further information, call Ralph at 208-683-2218.
