This is a 3 day fishing contest covering all of Manistee and Benzie county lakes. We have prizes for both adults and children’s in 6 categories each. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for Pike, Walleye, Perch, Crappie, Bluegill and Smelt. Prizes will include Vexilars, ice augers, and portable ice shanties plus many more. In previous years we gave away several Canadian fishing trips with the help of many area sponsors. Last years attendance was over 700 entries. This year will coincide with the Onekama Winter fest and there will be many other activities for families with children.
