Second Annual Trash Can Derby

Sponsored by the Captn's Table in Garfield Bay, fishermen are gearing up for this one hundred percent payout derby

Dates: The Trash Can Derby will start June 5 and run through June 7. The derby will continue June 12-14, and also the 19-21.


In addition, an “Aggregate Derby” will run May 1-June 21 (most fish caught in a day/week). The Aggregate Derby will not run by weight but the most heads turned in through the Angler Incentive Program. Days (between May 1-June 21) will be picked at random; the angler with the most fish (heads turned in) on that day will win aggregate prizes.


There will be 10 days chosen for the Aggregate Derby (10 cash prizes). There will also be cash prizes each weekend of the Trash Can Derby the biggest rainbow trout and the biggest mackinaw. A total of 16 cash prizes will be awarded over the duration; all fees collected from ticket sales will be handed out as prizes.

  • 14-18 year olds (“juniors”) are $10 per week—prizes will be awarded unless they want to participate in the adult category, which will be $20 per week;

  • Derby Masters: Roy Stokes and Jim Carothers;
  • Weight Masters: Bill and Sue Martin;
