Unfavorable sea conditions two weekends ago led to the postponement of the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club’s Dolphin Derby, sponsored by Budget Car and Truck Rental. The new date is May 5, with Registration and the Captain’s Meeting on May 3, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Clubhouse in Red Hook.
Prizes stay the same even though the date has changed.
Catch the largest dolphin (mahi-mahi) over 55-pounds and win $25,000 cash!
What’s more, a total of over $30,000 in cash and prizes is up for grabs. Cash prizes will be awarded to anglers who catch the 10 largest dolphin by weight. Ties in weight will be broken by length. The Best Boat award will be given to the vessel with the most dolphin by weight, with ties broken by count.
Entry fee is $250 for member boats, which includes four anglers and four rods, with $50 for an extra rod. Non-members pay $300 with $60 for an extra rod.
Late registration will take place on Saturday May 4 at Neptune Fishing Supplies in Red Hook.
Fishing begins with lines in the water at 6 a.m. on May 5. All boats must be past ‘P’ dock at IGY American Yacht Harbor Marina by 4 p.m. Weigh-in will take place at the marina. The Awards Dinner will take place on Monday May 6, starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club.
