And The winner Of The Boat Is?
Don Gable of Lake Isabella is the 2013 Isabella Lake Fishing Derby Pontoon Boat Winner.
Peggy Wolford who is engaged to Don purchased the tickets here at the Derby Headquarters in hopes she may win the boat for Don. She purchased 6 tickets and hoped that would be enough. Through out the week Don had experienced some bad luck and was a bit down. At 3:00pm the Isabella Lake Fishing Derby Committee gave the honors of pulling the winning ticket to CJ Bundy, who is the Kern Valley Woman of the year. She pulled Don's winning ticket and a call was made to Peggy to inform her that she indeed had purchased the winning ticket. She frantically grabbed Don and told him that they had to come to the Moose Lodge for something important and him figuring since they were members didn't think anything of it. When they finally had arrived Peggy brought him to Fred Roach who is the Head of the Derby committee. He then had informed him that Peggy purchased him the ticket and he was the new owner of a beautiful Lowe GS 202 Pontoon from Galey's Marine Supplies in Bakersfield. He was completely in shock and didn't believe Roach at first but it was true that the bad luck he had been having had come to an end.
Randy Harmon of Lomita, CA visited Derby Headquarters for the second time in 2 days with a tagged fish. The first time, he won $50.00! On Monday evening at 5:05, Randy walked into the room at the Moose Lodge with another tagged fish. The numbers indicated that he was the possible winner of $10,000 sponsored by Crossroads Shell Mini Mart. After Derby Chairman, Fred Roach handed Randy the envelope with 4 $100 certificates and one worth $10,000. Randy tore the envelope open and pulled out his certificate with his tag number on it. Randy excitedly waved his arms and smiled, claiming, "I just won $100.00!" The room exploded in applause and awes. "We really, truly wanted that to be a $10,000 prize!" Roach said with disappointment in hiss voice. Along with his drawing from the Bobber Bowl, Randy won an additional $100, sponsored by Crossroads. Congrats Randy!
Congratulations to Zack Sullivan of Cudahay CA. He caught a $100 trout sponsored by Barnes Bargains. He caught it at Paradise Cove using Garlic Power Bait.
