Jacob Irvine of Caro won $500 'Largest Pike of the Day" with his 33 3/4" Pike.
Due to unforeseen circumstances caused by recent extreme weather, the Northern Pike we normally receive from our supplier unfortunately died. The event will still take place on February 16, 2019 but with Rainbow Trout being the grand prize species. We were able to secure, tag, and drop ten 18”-24” Rainbow Trout on February 7, 2019. We will have small minnows and some shiners for sale as bait on the day of the event. All other event details will remain the same as previous years. Cash prizes are listed below. We hope you will still join us to support year round programs for children and adults with disabilities. The ice was measured at 7” thick on February 7, 2019. If you have any further questions, please call our office at 989-673-2050.
Rob Trott has had recent back surgery and will no longer be able to attend the event. He and Susie are wishing everyone the best of luck this year and they hope to see everyone next year!
