Some Pictures from the Islands Ice Fishing Derby
Deep snow on the ice limited fishing for everybody. Snowmobiles were nearly useless on a lot of the lake; same with 4 wheelers. Tracked vehicles did OK. Snowshoes helped a lot. As this post was written, not a lot of fish had been caught. I went around to all of the boards except for Mallet’s Bay and took pictures.
Hog Island store
From what I saw, Hog Island was where the big pike were. The pike on the left ran about 12.74 and was the Derby Winner.
Harborside Market, North Hero
Big lakers came from here. I think the tournament record laker is in this picture. It cam from the harbor store. If I am not mistaken, the winning perch is in this picture as well.
Bayside Bait and Tackle – St Albans Bay
Martins Store – Highgate Springs
