    Default Havasu Striper Derby Anyone?

    Anybody heading up to Lake Havasu this weekend for the W.O.N. Striper Derby? I will be fishing it with my 2 daughters and my son in law. Its a great family event that I have been fishing since 1989! I was up there in March and we caught a bunch of stripers trolling anchovies and sardines in the Bill Williams area. Most were 11-13 inchers but still fun to catch. Anyone have any recent intel from up there?

    We went and had a great time! My daughter and I weighed in 2 fish on Saturday and 5 on sunday for a total of around 14 pounds. My other daughter and her husband weighed in one on Saturday and 2 on sunday. Our best was 22 inches and theirs was 21 inches. Caught a couple trolling anchovies but most were caught chum/bait/wait with anchovies and sardines. Trolling with 4 on the boat was tough...Weather was perfect...light breeze and under 100 degrees. Even though they only caught 3 keepers, they won a blind bogey worth $560!!! She also won a raffle prize consisting of a Diawa surf rod, 5 spools of line (one is braid) and some lures! She gave me all the raffle loot! ;-) We will definitely be back next year. I will try to post a few pics if I get a free moment this weekend.

    Thanks for the reply haven't fished it for the last two years boat troubles. Glad you had a good time and won some stuff and cash, Always a great time there one year only caught one fish but won the blind bogey for cash. Post some photos when you have time would like to see what I missed this year. Thanks for posting.
