The 6th annual Harbour Harvest is a family friendly Ice Fishing Derby featuring:

An option for a delicious brunch in the Harbour View Hall at the Galley Restaurant in the Nepean Sail Club in Ottawa! (a separate link will be sent when ready to reserve your spot for Brunch)
No fishing license is required on Family Day weekend.
Holes drilled by volunteers if needed
Equipment available on site for anyone who doesn’t own their own.
We will also have some bait and lures (or bring your own).

$300+ Trophy for 1st place (“Longest” live fish),
$200 for person with most species caught (if a tie, we will use total length of fish – must be alive and only one of each species will qualify – ie. you can’t use two pikes). Species that qualify include Pike, Walleye, Perch, Catfish, Crappie, Sunfish (Ontario Fishing Regulations page 96). Only fish caught in the Harbour of the Nepean Sailing Club between 8:00am and 3:30pm will qualify. Must have at least two species to qualify – you cannot share or pass on your fish to help them win, they must be your own catch.
– Every registered/paid participant will receive a ticket for door prizes (presented at 3:30pm along with trophies)

How it works:
Check in opens at 8:00am (you can arrive anytime between 8am and 3pm) at the main entrance of the Nepean Sailing Club. No fishing before 8:00am
If you need gear you can add a fully rigged up “Harbour Harvest kit*” for $20 to your shopping cart before checking out. Note that this does not include pliers, but those can be borrowed on the ice as needed.
Organizers /volunteers will drill you a hole if you cannot locate one that has been pre-drilled and not in use already (note: Limit is two lines/holes per angler – only one line in allowed per hole)
We/you will abide by the Ontario Fishing Regulations
Minnows ($2) or worms ($1) or various lure options available on the ice – entrance (limited quantities available)
You are welcome to bring your own gear/bait and drill your own holes if you have the equipment.
Experts will be roaming to help with set up and advice (and creature handling if you wish).
The “Harbour Harvest Kit” includes:

A bucket (can be a seat, but mainly used for gear/fish)
Two rigged up tip-ups (rods) – you can choose a lure or hook with bait (minnow or worm).
Some other surprises/treats may be included!
Come for the entire day, or just drop in for a bite or two!

Trophies and cash prizes presented at 3:30pm.
