The Fishing Derby was held last Sunday on the Mill Pond. The Mill Pond is connected by a boating channel called “the narrows” to the Dead Sea called Straight Lake. Originally I was going to fish, but the wind was brutal, it was way below zero with the wind chill.
It is a Pan Fishing Derby. If you cover up your fishing hole you can see fish swimming around under the ice.
Is there anything down there?
We drove around the Mill Pond twice, Far Guy rolled down Chances window and he hung his head out and watched people.
Some were so bundled up they could hardly walk.
Some were just as cute as they could be. This little gal is multi- talented she is smiling at Chance while standing in a sled all bundled up and holding a juice box.
I bought Far Guy a gourmet lunch, he had a turkey sandwich and I had a hot dog.. and we split a candy bar for desert. We visited with a few people, but it was way too cold out there on the lake to stay too long.
The local Sportsman’s Club sponsors this Fishing Derby every year the last Sunday in February. We try to go every year, if not to fish then to have lunch and take a few photos:)
