Not true Ozzy,
3 years ago Juniors WERE eligible to win the grand prize for Lakers. They changed it the year my son was leading.....UNFORTUNATELY for them, they printed 2 sets of rules. 1 set that had the old eligibility and 1 set that had the new rule.....they were forced to make a ruling which allowed him to win had he held up, he ended up 3rd. This "New Category" is now in place because of that Derby and my sons situation.
Sorry about that......I kinda now remember hearing about that situation with your son. I've always fished for salmon not lakers and the last time a junior was in the boat, it was me 23 years ago. I should read the rules again. I started taking my daughter last year and she's 10 now. It sucks that they have changed the rules that were put in place by the founder Rick Davis.
