With winter finally settling in, it’s time to get ready for another great season ice fishing and of course derbies. While the ice hasn’t completely frozen everywhere, preparations are well underway to make the 12th Annual Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby even bigger and better than ever before!

Get Your Devices Ready!

Last year we announced that for the first time ever, angler’s at the derby would be allowed to use electronic devices. Our participants took to the ice with everything from Fish Flashers to Phone Apps to help them pick their hole. If you don’t have any electronic devices, here are some examples of electronic device types that can be used to help you fish. Devices range in price, but with so many options available you will be able to find something that doesn’t break the bank.

Double Your Chances to Win!

Every angler who participate in the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby is eligible to win up to two prizes with the purchase of a 2nd Hole Ticket. You’ll get to fish two holes during the derby, bettering your chances to catch more fish and each of your tickets will be entered into the randomly selected prize draw for prizes 11 to 60! For more information on the 2nd Hole Ticket please visit our FAQ page.
