The Fine Print
There is no fee to participate in LDWF's 2021 Get Out and Fish! Derby. Tagged catfish must be caught and landed by the participant on conventional rod, hook and line exclusively. There are no age restrictions for participation. All anglers must follow all rules, regulations, and daily limits as outlined in the current fishing regulations and all site-specific rules. Anglers 16 and over must have a Louisiana Recreational Fishing License.
An angler may report multiple tags, but only one prize will be awarded to the angler during the event.
LDWF employees and their immediate family member(s) are prohibited from participating in the 2020 Get Out and Fish! Derby. However, LDWF employees and immediate family member(s) may fish on their personal time in stocked ponds that contain prize catfish. LDWF employees and their immediate family member(s) are NOT eligible to claim any 2020 Get Out and Fish! Derby prize(s).
LDWF will determine how many tagged catfish will be released. The list of Get Out and Fish! sites is available to the public on our Get Out and Fish! page under Community Fishing Locations.
LDWF will maintain a list of claimed tags. Each tagged catfish will have a corresponding prize. To claim a prize, a successful angler must report the tag information by phone at 855.728.8247 or online. LDWF will contact the winning anglers following the event. Tags that are reported before the event or not reported to LDWF by end of event are not eligible for prize redemption.
