- The first 100 Cub Scouts at each fishing derby location are guaranteed a fishing derby patch.
- North Carolina law requires all people 16 years old and older to hold a valid fishing license.
- Owning a valid fishing license is not required for this event as it is covered by a North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission fishing license waiver as an educational event for inexperienced fishermen and youth fishermen.
