Ontario Family Fishing Events

Bluewater Anglers Ice Derby


Date(s) - February 15, 2020
6:00 am - 11:00 am

Sarnia Bay
97 Seaway Rd
Sarnia, Ontario

The Ice Fishing Derby is the first club event of 2020. Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate. We hope to have a record turnout like the last derby (two years ago). The outing is held on the first license-free weekend in Ontario, so no fishing license is needed! The Ice Fishing Derby is open to both club members and the general public. Bring the family and some friends and enjoy a morning fishing on Sarnia Bay.

An entry fee of $5.00 per person must accompany the entry form. Entry forms and complete Ice Fishing Derby information will be available at the January 7th General Membership Meeting. The Outdoorsman and Bucks Bait will have application forms until 4:30 PM on Friday, February 14th. Tickets will be available at the Sarnia Bay Marina parking lot on Saturday morning February 15th between 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM. You must buy your Ice Fishing Derby ticket before you start fishing.

The Ice Fishing Derby starts at 6:00 AM on Saturday, February 15th. Participants can bring their catch to the weigh-in station located at the Sarnia Bay Marina boat ramp anytime during the morning. All fish must be weighed in by 11:00 AM. Prizes will be based on 90% of the ticket sales. 10% will go to the Bluewater Anglers Hatchery. Cash prizes will be awarded based on weight in each of the three fish categories … Panfish (including perch, crappie, sunfish, rock bass), Pike, and Trout (Rainbow and Brown Trout). You may enter only one fish per category. If no fish are entered in a category, the prizes in that fish category will be added to the Panfish category. Prizes will be awarded immediately after the weigh-in closes at 11:00 AM.

Draw prizes will be made from entrants 12 and under, and from entrants 13 and over. Draw Prize winners must be present for the draws made at the close of the weigh-in.
