The 1,000 Dollar A Day Derby is new this year. It is open to all anglers in Canada and the US. The derby runs from May 1, 2003 to August 31, 2003 lake wide on Lake Ontario. The entry fee is $65.00 tax included for a single seasonal ticket. Charter Captains can sell you a one day ticket for $10.00. This is a very well run and organized derby and we encourage any one who may want to participate to do so. Grab a few of your closest friends and book a trip with a captain and who knows you may be the next big winner. Daily winners in the derby are entered in a grand prize drawing for a Lund 1700 fisherman with a 90 HP Honda 4 stroke engine. The grand prize will be awarded by a random drawing on September 20, 2003
UPDATE The 1,000 Dollar A Day Derby ran for two years and was very successful, but fell victim to financial difficulty due in part to the downturn in the economy and the addition of the weekly trout category. Also the captains were not required to sell tickets and the derby did not receive the support it had the first year. Derbies come and go. We sincerely hope someone will put together another as exciting as this one was in the near future.
