Default 4th Annual CLF Shorefishing Salmon Derby- Sat. Sept. 17

Well it's that time of year again! CLF will be holding it's annual shore fishing salmon derby at Waukegan's Government Pier, Saturday Sept. 17. The boundary for the derby is Government Pier ONLY. The south rocks are out of bounds.

Registration will take place from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. The registration table will be right at the base of Govt. Pier. You can fish as soon as you are registered. If you show up after 7:30 pm, you may still fish, you just have to find a derby official on the pier and register first. We will have FRS radios tuned to channel 3 for any questions, late registration or if you need help. All fish must be weighed in by 11:30. Weigh-In will take place one the pier itself. A warning horn will sound at 11:15.

Prizes will be given for the top 3 heaviest Chinook weighed in. One additional prize will be given for the heaviest Coho, Brown OR Lake Trout (that?s one prize total). If no other species are caught, the additional prize will go to the fourth heaviest Chinook. If not enough fish are caught to award all the prizes, the prizes will be given away by randm drawing.

We are in the process of aligning our sponsors, so details on sponsors & prizes will be added soon. Entry into the derby will be $10 for CLF subscribers $15 for CLF members and $20 for Non-members. We WILL be checking, so register or upgrade to a subscriber now!

As usual we will have lots of fun, raffles and prizes. Let us know if you're coming. Last year we had 81 paid participants, our largest CLF event ever. Let's top 100 this year!

Just a couple more things.
Make sure you are a current subscriber not one from 3 years ago.

I should have our new hats and also our embroidered patches by then too and will have them along.
Actually patches should be in about 2 weeks from now if not sooner.
Hats are heading into production.
If you want to be sure to get in on the first run before they sell out, contact me now.

Last year was a great time and we had the chance to meet all kinds of new folks, and ah, eat all kinds of good food :wink:
Hopefully as Tubes said this year will be even better

I don't recall putting a joking manner to that question.
If I remember in the past the snagging season for salmon opened Sept 15th. So i found it kinda odd, that it would be held after that date and at night.
If that were the case i wouldn't attend.

But I answered my own question by seeing the DRN changed the starting date to Oct 1st.

Someone posing a concerned question doesn't mean you can gear yourself up and get defensive. Calm down.

Yes, snagging is legal from the government pier, and for YEARS, the season has always been Oct 1st thru Dec 31st in waukegan. Chicago
has different dates for the park districts and such.

Can't wait to see all of you on the 17th!
