2nd Annual Gene Merrill Fishing Derby

Saturday, September 25, 2021

This is a private tournament for members of the Mission Bay Yacht Club.

If you wish to charge the registration fee to your MBYC account, a Coupon Code provided by the Tournament Director can be used for registration in lieu of payment via PayPal.

Mission Bay Yacht Club Anglers Club is excited to host its Second Annual Gene Merrill Fishing Derby. Gene was a legendary fisherman at MBYC and we would like to honor his name by hosting this fun filled “In-the-Bay” Fishing Derby.

This will be a one day tournament format, lines in at 6:00 AM and last weigh in at 4:00 PM. The Gene Merrill Bay Tournament will be $25.00 per team (up to 4 anglers using just one app to enter fish caught) or you can enter as an individual for $25.00, 100% of the entry fees will be split up and payouts will go to the largest fish of each category (Largest Bass and Largest Halibut – If no halibut are caught all the money goes to the Bass category). Other prizes will be awarded for 2nd and 3rd place in both categories.

We are using the iAngler Tournament App and Software to manage all “Fish-Weigh In” procedures as well as Sign-Up and Leader Board. If you are not tech-savvy we will help you through the process (it’s really easy). VHF Communication on the water will be through VHF Channel 71.

Registration Fee: No Fee for Angler Club members in good standing (optional $20 Jackpot for biggest fish in each catagory - cash payout)

Since this is Catch-and-Release tournament you can measure and enter (and return to the bay in good health) a fish that is not of legal length (for example you can enter a 10” Spotty for 10 points), after each catch the points will go directly “live” on the Leader Board. Other anglers will be able to see the Leader Board during the Tournament hours up until 3 PM (final weigh-in is 4 PM).
  • Each submitted weigh-in photo will be screened by the Tournament Director / Moderator for accuracy. In the case of a tie the photo that was submitted first during the tournament will get one extra point for the tie breaker.
