A Great Morning at the 2018 Ice Fishing Derby

It was perfect weather for the 2018 Ice Fishing Derby. Check out photos from the day!

We started with a delicious breakfast prepared by Pattie Brick and Vern Eshbaugh, and then it was down to the frozen pond for the derby to start at 8am.

Lots of 13″ inch fish were caught, but Jeff Kinney took the day with his 13-3/4″ trout. We’ll give an honorable mention to Adian for his 14″ fish, along with a reminder that you’ve got to be in the competition to win!

Thanks to the Pond Committee for pulling together a great event, and for all the fishermen for coming out!
