This big lake has big fish. Land some big bucks for a great cause at Jake’s Annual Charity Fishing Derby and Brunch on Sunday, June 1, 2014.
Catch a big trout like Gene St. Denis pictured here while you help raise money for the North Tahoe Booster Club.
During Jake’s Annual Charity Fishing Derby, now named the Mike Kise Memorial Charity Fishing Derby, after long-time Jake’s manager Mike Kise, the Mackinaw, Tahoe’s glamour fish, outreach all other local species for bragging rights and prize money. Mackinaws generally swim in deeper waters between 100 and 600 feet.
All entries must be caught in Lake Tahoe by boat, pier, inner tube, or from the shore on the day of the tournament between an hour before sunrise and noon. Prize money is awarded based on the weight of the fish. The largest Mackinaw hooked nets in a $1,000 prize; the largest German Brown this year receives $1000 (there were no Browns caught in 2013 so the prize money rolls over); the biggest rainbow $250. Weigh-in is judged in front of Jake’s lakeside deck.
All proceeds for the 2014 event go to the North Tahoe Booster Club. During its twenty year history the derby has raised well over $50,000 to support scholarships and other local non-profit organizations.
Signups need to register at Jake’s On The Lake or Pete N’ Peter’s tavern in Tahoe City by 5pm, Saturday, May 31st. The $50 entry donation includes Derby T-shirt, raffle entry and Jake’s buffet brunch.
