Saturday August 1st will be the second annual Mundo Madness Fishing Derby. This event is held in conjunction with the Wildhorse Inn & Casino’s Jicarilla Outdoor Expo. Last year the event was fantastic and this year it should be even better. All the Particulars have not been sorted out as of yet, but so far there is about $900.00 dollars in cash prizes planned as well as other prizes. Entry for adults (13 & over) will be $15.00 and $5.00 for youth (12 & under).
Derby Registration will be held at the Mundo Lake Dam Spillway (same spot at last year): Registration will start at 10:00am.
The Derby will officially begin with the loud noise at 11:00am ( siren/gun shot,undetermined what type of loud noise as of yet, stay posted for updates...)
The Derby will officially end with the yet to be determined loud noise at EXACTLY 6:00pm. (Last year there seemed to be some scuttlebutt about which clock, since it's my show, we use my watch/cellphone or other yet to be determined clock)
All Fish must be brought to the weigh in at the Mundo Spillway by 6:30pm (same as last year)
Prize ceremony will be held at the Wildhorse Casino at 7:30 pm (must be present to collect prizes)
Last year we had a excellent group of anglers and a lot of fun was had by all (even if some take things a little to seriously...) This is a fun family event, please bring a positive attitude fitting the laid back style of our fishing derbies. Many people on the forum have been present at all 3 derbies I have been a part of for the Nation, I run a good clean show, though it may seem erratic, that's is just the way it is. As usual cheating/shenanigans will not be tolerated and will get you blacklisted.
Prize break down this year is a little different than last year. Must be 21 or older to collect cash prizes (so if you're a young buck, must have adult present to collect a cash prize). There will be over all bag weigh prizes and youth division prizes as well.
Bass Bluegill Combined Bag (pounds total)
Catfish (single species bag, pounds total)
Trout over 20" (if multiple caught largest wins, if there is a tie first to the check in station wins) all other trout catch and release for the Derby, So only keep it if you are sure it is over 20" (i.e. bring your lying stick)
Youth prizes will be similar to last year, all the kids who showed up walked away with some goodies, of course all the bag limit prizes apply to the youth division if they have an adult to collect (which they should)
There will also be multiple raffles etc. going on at the Outdoor Expo at the Wildhorse Casino over the weekend so you all are encouraged to stick around and enjoy the festivities. Last year they had an awesome BBQ plate/adult beverage stand/live DJ at the prize ceremony!
I'd love to see a good turn out this year and as always wish everyone the best of luck!
