There were no Crappie caught during this event so the Prize of $185.00 was awarded by raffle draw.

 

In total 203 people attended.

 

The weather was perfect, many eater size walleye were caught. Two lip tags were seen on fish released today and all fish appeared heathy.

It was awesome to see how much fun was being had out on the ice, from so many prizes going out to watching the young man ice skating while his dad fished. With so many people out, the current, and number of lures down there the walleye were certainly co operative.

Raffle Tickets were sold on two items, a Yukon Clam Ice Hut, won by Santo Amalfi and a Framed Print of the Dunnville Dam, won by Tim Battenberg.

 

Again thank you to EVERYONE who attended… It is the people that show up to these events that make them a success.

This was the first time I have really Helped Steve out when it came to running a Tournament and I have to say , I had no clue about the amount of work that goes into these events, starting months in advance.

 

Kudo's to all those that have done this in the past.

 

Having an opportunity to be a part of something like this has given me a new insight into the people who make the sport of fishing what it is. From the smiles on everyone's faces in the morning, before dawn, to the comradery on the ice, it was a truly wonderful day!

 

My sons , Zachary and Christian had a blast helping out and meeting everyone... From my little Family , thank you for coming out... we had a great time out there!

 

Cheers,

 

Jen
