Since 1983, the Division has been hosting the annual Weigh-In Derby. All fish entered must be legally caught on hook and line, and measured at an official Division-certified weigh station.

All confirmed entries will receive a Derby pin. Awards will be given to those anglers catching the heaviest of each species for each of the three divisions: Mens, Womens, and Juniors (boys and girls aged 15 and younger). A Skillful Skipper award is presented to a for-hire (charter boat or head-boat) captain who has at least three Derby-winning fish caught on his or her boat.

In 2015, there were 24 winners in the Weigh-In Derby and Captain Joe Huckemeyer of the Helen H was a Skillful Skipper winner. The awards ceremony for the 2015 Derby will take place on February 20 in conjunction with the New England Boat Show in Boston.
