Good Luck Fishing Lake Winnipesaukee!!
Due to the rumors and information on some of the fishing blogs, there has been a raised awareness that the possibility of some of the past entries for Landlocked Salmon entered were not fished from Lake Winnipesaukee.
The Laconia Rotary Club Winni Derby Committee has decided to enforce rule #15 for the Grand Prize Salmon Division that provides for a polygraph test for the determined winner and his/her witness.
15. Each participant and witness agrees to comply with the official rules and regulations of the Winni Derby and the laws of the State of NH. All winners of any Grand or Major prize will be required to sign a sworn affidavit provided by the Derby. If requested, the participant and the witness agree to submit to a polygraph examination (lie detector) at a time and place determined by the Derby officials. Refusal to submit to a polygraph examination by either the participant or the witness may result in entry disqualification. Failure of either to pass the polygraph to the satisfaction of the Derby officials shall result in entry disqualification.
This examine will be completed by Crawford Polygraph Service, to be scheduled after the event at the convenience of all involved.
As a result of this, the Grand Prize will not be disbursed until successful completion of this test. We would like to thank everyone involved and hope that we have a very successfull Derby!
