Petrie Island Ottawa
The 2017 edition of the PIIFA Ice Fishing Derby will take place Saturday, February 18 in Baitshop Bay at Petrie Island. This is always a fun event and this year, it will be held on Ontario’s Family Fishing Week-end. The week-end is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card.
As with all PIIFA derbies, this is an invitational event. It is exclusively for the hut owners of Petrie Island, their invited guests, and people renting huts from Oziles in Baitshop Bay.
Contestants can compete for prizes in 3 categories: the largest legal fish; the largest panfish; and the smallest legally caught fish. There will also be lots of participation prizes and a 50/50 draw. All profits from the event go to CHEO in support of kids in our area.
Cost for registration on derby day is $25.00 for adults and $10.00 for kids, 16 years old and younger. Save $5.00 if you register on the Thursday or Friday before the event. Registration for the derby is at the Beaudoin-Tessier hut on the ice.
We have lined up a few sponsors for prize donations but are always looking for more. If you or your company would like to donate, please contact Big Al on the ice or send us an email.
