37th Annual Western Outdoor News Lake Havasu Striper Derby



What’s new at 2019 Striper Derby?

-Big Fish High Roller’s optional: Throw in an additional $100 on top of your all-inclusive $275 team entry fee and be included in the new High Roller’s optional for a shot at a big payday for the three heaviest striped bass in the division.

-General Big Fish payouts down to 5th place: Whereas in previous years the general Big Fish payouts went to the 3 biggest overall fish at Striper Derby, payouts will now go out to the anglers catching the 5 largest fish of the event.

-Multiple teams on one boat: Back again for 2019, more than one team may fish the Derby from the same boat – including but not limited to one-angler “teams,” which will also now be allowed at Striper Derby.

-One-division team competition: Striper Derby will consist of one, lone division including every registered team, with prizes and trophies going to the top-10 finishers of the event.

-All Teams Must weigh-In by boat: All tournament fish must be presented to the scales via boat ONLY at London Bridge Resort courtesy docks.  No walk-in or drive-in fish will be accepted by tournament staff!

Western Outdoor News and the city of Lake Havasu are proud to be hosting the 37th anniversary of the Lake Havasu Striper Derby this coming May 18 - 19, 2019.

WON will be hitting the Havasu heat in May to dole out the prizes, cash and fun in the sun, to the hundreds of participants certain to make the annual trip.

This year's Grand Raffle prize Klamath 16 EXW paired with a Suzuki 40 HP motor and trailer will be a rig worth parking in front of the house to show off.  Not to mention the family fishing fun at your local fishing hole at gorgeous Lake Havasu.


The Striper Derby festivities kick off on Friday afternoon at the team check-in, held at Anderson Toyota at 6510 Showplace Ave in Lake Havasu City. Anderson Toyota will be hosting all anglers and family members at a special appreciation BBQ during registration hours from 4 pm until 7 pm. BBQ starts at 5:00 PM.  Teams will check in during this time, and they may purchase additional event T-shirts, make partner changes and enter the blind bogie and big fish options if not already entered. Late sign-ups will also be taken at this time. After check-in, a brief Captain's Meeting will take place to go over event rules and weekend activities for first time entrants.
