62nd Annual Ice Fishing Derby Winners
The 62nd annual NICC Ice Fishing Derby was held February 12-13, 2022, on the Chain O Lakes. This year’s headquarters was in a tent at Turtle Beach. Weather conditions were perfect this year, although the fish didn’t seem to agree as catching seemed slow. This year there were 147 fishers registered, which is up by 50 from last year. We also had a few bucket raffles and a 50/50 raffle. It was great to see so many of the regulars as well as many new people attending the derby. I would like to extend a huge thank you to all those that worked to ensure that the derby went off without a hitch and to all of our great sponsors. Without the volunteers and sponsorships, we could not continue this event for as long as we have
