Do you love spending time on a relaxing lake while angling for some of the best fish in the water? If so, try your hand at the annual Fishin’ for $50K Big Bear Lake Trout Fishing Tournament held each year just off Big Bear Lake, California. This extremely popular event is back for another year of amateur and competitive fisherman trying their best to reel in one of five tagged trout each worth $10,000; that is up to $50,000 in possible winnings!
Fishing Derby for all Ages
The Fishin’ for $50k Trout Tournament is not just an adult competition. Adult and children competitions are taking place this year giving anglers of all ages a chance to win one of many prizes. The adult derby will award the top three place finishers with a cash prize. First place can take home $500, second place $250, and third place will gain free entry into the 2020 event. As mentioned, the big catches are five individual trout specially tagged for $10,000 each. The children’s competition is the perfect way for the kids to reel in their own competitive fish. First place child’s winner takes home a $500 savings bond, second place a $250 saving bond, and third place gets free entry into the 2020 event and a brand-new fishing rod. Now those are some prizes worth fighting over!
How It Works
Each contestant will be allowed to fish until their heart is content from 6:00am to 2:00pm for both days of the event. Everyone will be given a free jar of bait to help bring in the big catches. Not only will contestants enjoy two full days of fishing on the lake but also receive discounts at participating local restaurants, shops and specialty service stores all around Big Bear. Each contestant will also be given a raffle ticket to potentially bring home thousands of dollars’ worth of brand new gear.
