    Chris is right on, been doing the Trustworthy derby from the first year they had it. Great folks, great prizes.
    Chris, we did get to Stormy yesterday and the six year old with us set the hook on a nice pike. At the store it weighed 10.04 lbs. Hope to see his picture up on the website soon.
    This derby isn't like the ones you might see in Minnesota or Maine, where you might win a new snowmachine or a bunch of money. But once you get involved you watch the board to see whats coming in. I even take a litte February vacation just to ice fish.

    The Valley has been promoting the annual pike derby, but don't recall who is putting it on.

    The Nikiski Middle/High Wrestling Team just got approved to hold a 1 day ice fishing tournament this Saturday, Feb 6th at Island Lake. The coaches are really connected in the local community, so they have some nice prizes that were donated (power auger, ice shack, etc...). There should be a lot of information coming out in the next day regarding specifics, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.
