From the rules:

  • Derby tickets cost $40 per person ($42.50 online) for 1 or all 3 days. [One ticket is good for the whole derby or for whatever days you go out.]
  • Participants must have a current Derby ticket prior to fishing. [There are no stickers.]
  • Each person on vessel must have a ticket, whether fishing or not and regardless of age. [Every legal pole in the boat needs its own ticket on hand.]
  • Ticket purchases are NONREFUNDABLE. Remember these tickets support a nonprofit charity [and we rely on every ticket sale; if you can't use your ticket, you may be able to report the cost as a tax deductible donation].
  • All Derby ticket holders are eligible to fish, including officials.
