The One That Didn't Get Away!

The Return of the Angle Lake Shore Club Fishing Derby

The Shore Club continues to return our activities to in-person events. On May 15th, the Todd and the Langenbach residences on the northwest leg of the lake became the site for our ever-popular annual Fishing Derby, Community Barbeque, and Raffle Drawing for 2022. 

Even though the rain was relentless and would not let up, it was terrific to witness the crowd gathered were as happy to meet new neighbors and greet familiar ones as they were as anxious to win some fabulous prizes in our raffle contest!

'Filet of Sole' into the oddest fish category!

Overall there were 19 fish brought in for measuring, not including the many that got away! And I'm happy to report several were released alive back into the lake after recording. Actually, it appeared that Richard and Robin Farmer kept bringing in and releasing the same fish several times! After a while, we teased that we would tag the fish to make sure it wasn't the same one being returning for measurement. 

Our 'resident expert' Richard Rock surprisingly came up empty this year; however, our 'consistent Chow' Murphy took first place for longest fish, bringing in the 17 3/4" Rainbow Trout for measuring. With that, she netted the $122 top prize. Young Mr. Carroll brought in the only Perch among all other Trout, awarding him the prize for most odd fish.

As a result of many of the fishing categories going unawarded this year, we shifted the unclaimed remaining prizes over to the raffle table for inclusion in the drawing. Pam and Dave Yoruzu stand out from the many winners as their luck helped them pull in several prizes each. However, the top raffle prize of an electric bicycle went to Katherine Evans-Race. 

Overall, even considering the merciless drenching, this year's Derby was a welcomed opportunity to finally get back together and get acquainted/reacquainted with our neighbors. Event photos captured by our club photographer, Tani Rae Standridge, are available to view through this LINK

Check back regularly as more photos, including a special video, are expected to be added in the near future.
