Still time to enter fish derby
Bass and striper only; catfish category cut

The early bird registration deadline for the 24th Annual Firefighter Fishing Derby has passed, but two- or three-person teams can still sign up, according to Mike Stapleton, one of the tournament's directors.

The tournament takes place May 17-18 at South Cove on Lake Mead.

This year there will be only two divisions in the tournament: bass, either largemouth or smallmouth, and stripers.

The catfish division, which had been part of the tournament for many years, was discontinued this year. Awards will be given to the top three teams in each division, along with a big fish award.

Anglers will start fishing at 4:30 p.m. on May 17, and those who fish for bass will need to come back to the dock at a time to be determined by Fred Proudfoot to weigh and release any largemouth or smallmouth bass they have caught.

Teams are allowed up to 15 bass to be checked in over the two-day tournament, but no more than 10 bass can be checked in on any one day.

The limit for stripers for a team is 40.

The cost to enter the event is $80 for two-person teams and $100 for three-person teams. If one of the members of a three-person team is under 16 years old, then the fee is $80.

After the tournament, there will be a free awards dinner at the home of Fred and Carol Proudfoot in Meadview.

Entries can be made at the Kingman Fire Department, 412 E. Oak St. in Kingman. According to Stapleton, entries will be accepted up to the time of the start of the tournament, but dockside entries must be cash only.

For more information, call Stapleton at (760) 450-4954 or Matt Wolsey at (928) 279-3926.

Just a reminder to the people entering the tournament that the Meadview Market is closed down and there is no gas in Meadview. The closest gas will be Dolan Springs or Kingman.
