2020 Shelter Island Snapper Derby Winners

The 2020 Snapper Derby due to the corona virus will not be held.

Instead a virtual derby will take place. Between Friday, August 28th and Sunday, September 6th we ask all the kids to go fishing with their family to have a good time. If you do catch some fish, take a photo, include a caption and e-mail it to photos@shelterislandsnapperderby.org to have it posted on the Derby web-site. In return, if you include in your e-mail your name, address and kid's shirt size, the Derby will mail you a snapper derby t-shirt. Remember to start fishing early and send in your photos since we have a limited supply of snapper derby shirts. Kids, have a great time fishing with your parents to enjoy the last days of summer. Stay safe and follow social distancing.
