Ready, set, fish!

January 3, 2014
Pierce County Tribune

The Rugby Eagles 19th "Almost Annual" Fishing Derby will take place Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, from noon to 2 p.m., at Sand Lake. Tickets cost $20 for adults (which includes the cost of a raffle ticket, door prizes and a meal) and $5 for kids. Fish houses are allowed.

Raffle ticket prizes include a fish shelter and an ice auger, among other prizes. Cash prizes include $200 for the biggest northern, $200 for the biggest perch, and $100 for the second-biggest of each. Kids prizes are subject to a 100 percent giveaway rate (depending on attendance).

Event organizers recommend arriving before noon to register. They expect enough ice for everyone.

Eagles president Paul Niemi said that there's a reason for the "almost annual" in the title. Like last year, there have been times when the weather has forced cancellations, preventing the event from becoming truly annual.
