Forget the Bassmasters and Bisbee’s Black & Blue…The 11th Annual Sand Crab Classic Perch Tournament in Santa Cruz, CA is the fishing derby of the year!
This exclusive event is limited to the first 300 entries and participants will vie for some sweet schwag and will also get loaded up on some excellent grub and the coveted Sand Crab Classic T-shirt. By the way: If you need to brush up on your perch skills, click HERE
And it’s all for a good cause: Proceeds go to the Monterey Bay Salmon & Trout Project!
This year, the derby has double trophies and double prizes, including awards for the top three fish in both the Barred and Non-Barred Perch categories (there are also three divisions: 17 & up, 16 and under and women). There is also fly-only category!
Entry fees are $40/adults & $30 for ages 16 and under. This is a pre-register even only as no tickets (except for meals) will be sold the day of the event. Registration closes Feb. 28.
The Classic will take place Saturday, March 14 with a 1:00 pm weigh-in deadline at Portuguese Hall, 216 Evergreen St. Santa Cruz 95060.
