LIBBA DERBIES

MONTAUK DERBY & SOUTH SHORE DERBY

LIBBA HOLDS TWO FISHING DERBIES EACH YEAR. BE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THESE EVENTS.


THESE DERBIES COINCIDE WITH THE MONTAUK CLASSIC AND THE SOUTH SHORE CLASSIC, HOSTED BY NEW YORK STATE PARKS AND THE FISHERMAN MAGAZINE.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO ENTER THESE GREAT EVENTS. 


The LIBBA derbies and the NY state contests are separate events. You must give your LIBBA weight slip to a LIBBA Weigh Master


LIBBA DERBY RULES


LIBBA Weigh Masters will be present during the derby, and will be designated by a sign on their vehicle.  Additionally they will be present at the state contest awards ceremony.  A LIBBA Weigh Master sign will be displayed on their vehicle in the parking lot before, during, and immediately after the awards ceremony.


All weight slips for entering fish must be turned in to him/her at this time.


1. This is a striped bass and bluefish contest.


2. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for striped bass and bluefish .  One prize, per

participant, per species is allowed in the derbies.


3. To enter a fish, you must be a current dues paid member.


4. All entries must be on a LIBBA weigh slip (with time of catch recorded).


5. Fish must be weighed in by a LIBBA Weigh Master, or the state contest’s official weigh station.


6.  Weights officially recorded for the state contest may be used for LIBBA weight slips upon presentation of legitimate confirmation of the weight to the Weigh Master.


7. All weight slips must be turned in to a LIBBA Weigh Master by ending time of the derby. (The derby ending time will be the same as the state contest.  Weight slips must be turned in by the awards ceremony ending time.)


8. Minimum weight for bluefish is 5 Lb., striped bass: 36" or 15 pounds.
