2013 Perch Derby

The Annual Chenango Lake Perch Derby was back again and better that ever.  Along with the gauranteed $1,000 Cash Prize for the first registered fisherman to catch a special 2013-tagged perch, donated by NBT Bank, there were prizes awarded every 15 minutes for the Largest Perch in that period. All of the 15 minute prizes were donated by area merchants. There was also a $150 Cash Prize, donated by Mayhood’s Sporting Goods, for the Largest Perch of the day and a $150 Cash Prize, donated by the family of Dr. Richard Polgar, DMD,PC in his memory for the Largest Pickerel of the day. Preferred Mutual Insurance Co. also donated an additional $500 cash prize in the event that a second 2013-tagged perch was caught.

Because no 2013-tagged perch is caught this year, the guaranteed $1,000 cash prize was split into 6 drawings for $500, $250, $100, $75, $50, $25. Only registered fisherman were eligble for the drawings.
