First of all, we would like to thank all of the sponsors who have helped to support our Derby for the past several years. Without them, it would not be possible to hold this event and bring all of you some great prizes. We ask that you please support them, especially now, under the current economic conditions we face and that we help them as much as they help us.

For this year we have been making great progress for the 38th Annual Derby and want each one of you to know that we are truly grateful for all of your participation and that we are hard at work putting together some great prizes for this year’s event.

First, you will be happy to know that we are not raising any costs for this year’s event (fee schedule below). We have tried to ensure we keep our Derby as affordable as we can but still maintain the high level of prizes that you have come to expect from this event. We also have some exciting additions that we are sure you will be interested in for the 38th Annual Derby. We have added in a special West Herr NY Walleye New York waters only bounty for all of our local participants. We have heard you loud and clear and feel this new addition to our already outstanding prize line-up will add some extra interest and competition at the local level. This gives you plenty of opportunities to cash in if you catch the big fish on the right day in the right water.

  • Membership Fee: $50.00
  • Derby Fee: $50.00
  • 4 Day Calcutta: $50.00
  • 9 Day US Water Calcutta: $100
  • 9 Day NY Waters Only Calcutta: $100
  • Walleye Wallet: $5.00

Lastly, we want to remind you that our online sign-ups will be available on January 1st and that additionally you can sign-up in person at the club or on January 20th from 6pm – 8pm also at the club. These sign-ups are important if you want to get in on our great early bird prizes. You can find out more information here on the prizes but please note that you have to sign-up now to get entered for a chance to win. 

Once again, we want to thank all of you and hope this year will be another great year of fishing opportunities for everyone. We hope you stay safe, enjoy the outdoors and remember to take a kid fishing! Let's have another great year and we look forward to our 38th Annual Southtowns Walleye Association of WNY, Inc., Derby.
