Day One of the 2018 Derby

Day one of the 2018 King George Fishing Derby is in the books, one more day to go. We weighed in lots of bass today, both large and smallmouth in both Divisions. The trolling side was pretty slow, with only one laker weighed in over the 27″ limit in the Adult Division and no salmon over 21″. For the second year after moving from mid-July to September, we had warm weather… and the boat traffic that comes with it. Both made for tougher fishing, along with inconsiderate boaters that can’t seem to stay away from people trying to fish, plenty of water out there to go way around. We had a few issues with the new online Leaderboard but everything has been fixed and all of today’s catches have been posted, so check them out. Good Luck tomorrow everyone, fishing is from 6am to 2pm and weigh stations close at 2:30pm. The Award’s Ceremony will start at 4pm at Lake George American Legion Post 374.
