This family friendly contest takes place on Beebe Lake just out from the public access Saturday, Feb. 1, from noon to 3 p.m. and will be loaded with prizes again this year. Besides the multitude of door prizes for both adults and children, there will be three cash prizes awarded in each fish category: bass, northern, crappie and sunfish. 1st prize is $100, 2nd prize is $75 and 3rd prize is $50, so 12 chances to win cash. Judged by the weight of any one fish in each class. All prizes will be awarded. There will also be a separate winter sport raffle that offers a chance to win a Vexilar FL-20 fish finder, a portable fish house and many gift certificates. Cost for a ticket to fish is $5 for age 16 and under, and $10 for age 17 and older. Each ticket will get you one hole and will enter you into the door prize drawing. The Winter Sports Raffle tickets separate from the fishing prizes, are $5 each. Both fishing and raffle tickets can be pre-bought at St. Michael Hardware Hank or Dehmer’s Meats in St. Michael. The KRWC Road Show will be on hand to play music and games. Lunch and concessions will be available on the ice, or you may bring your own food and beverages.
