    Like to fish?  Even if you don't you may want to toss in a line and try your luck up at Big Bear Lake the weekend of June 5 and 6.  If you manage to catch the right fish, well, it could be worth a new car to you, or maybe a world vacation or you could just bank the $50,000 instead.

    That's the top prize in the annual "Fishin for $50K Trout Derby."  Nine other trout are tagged for smaller prizes and you can win $500 if you manage to net the biggest trout of the weekend.

    You can get more information on the Big Bear website and learn how you can enter for free by staying at one of the participating lodges up there.  Again, it's the first weekend of June, the 5th and 6th.  Click here for more info or to register on-line: http://www.bigbear.com/fishing/TroutDerby
