Ice Fishing Derby aka Winni-Derby

This past weekend we went up to Meredith Bay to check out the Rotary Club Ice Fishing Derby. It was in full swing even with the 30 mile per hour winds.
1st prize is a boat and 2nd is an ATV.
This picture is looking out onto the ice.
Folks ride in on snow machines, drive on with SUV's and ATV and set up house.

Looking down the lake with Church Landing Resort on the right you have a "modern" bob-house. Most folks just build something crude out of plywood and scraps, some have tents, and others drag some old shed out onto the ice and leave it until spring. It was sunny but windy and we saw two bob-houses break free of their tethers and blow and tumble down the lake.
There are different categories and this is a shot of the smallest type of fish caught.
Other fish were yellow perch, cusk, brook trout, and rainbow trout.


  1. Looks like a whole lot of fun in the snow!

  2. Don't you wish the weather could have been like it is today? Don't actually know what it is at your place but up here it's sunny, 48 degrees and just a slight breeze. I'm enjoying it while it lasts because I'm sure ole' man winter isn't done with us yet. -Sandy


Glad you could stop by.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
