$40 is not bad, to get in the Southtown walleye turny on Erie it cost at least $55, & top prize is only $5K. second prize is $3K. Then if you want to try to win other $$ it cost $10-$15 more on top of it! You are forced to join their club & the only benefit it a monthly news letter with nothing in it but advertisements. jmo

Ladies and gentlemen,

Not sure where you are getting your information from but there has been exactly ONE price increase in 7 years. It went from $25 to $30 in 2008 and I raised it from $15 to $20 for a one day pass and $30 to $40 for an individual derby after last falls event.

There has never been anything even close to a 60% price increase, ever. Maybe someone saw the fees for the one day pass and got them mixed up.

With the price increase there was a substantial increase in the daily prize structure for all events. It went to $1100 a day in the Spring and $1500 per week in the summer.

In the Fall LOC, it used to be $300 a day, now it's $900 a day, $500 for salmon and $200 each for brown and Rainbow. That's $15,300 in daily cash awards for this Fall's event, quite an increase.

For the fall event it costs less than $2.23 per day for the 18 days. There is $65,800 cash and over $6500 in merchandise prizes up for grabs. With a Grand prize of $25,000 do you really want to be fishing the Great Lake and NOT be in?

It's even a better deal if you just entered for the whole season all at once. I know some people just have better things to spend there money on but I register when I get my tax refund back. It's pretty much a bonus cause I get the refund which is a plus in this state as it is
