Anglers hit ice

Between 60 and 70 brave anglers attended this year's Kingdom Builders Ministries annual fishing derby. This was the sixth annual ice fishing contest, and there were plenty of fish and prizes to go around. The largest northern caught weighed in at 4.03 pounds. The largest bass was 2.38 lbs. The largest perch was 13 ounces, and the largest sunfish was 3 ounces. Gifts included a portable icehouse, two augers, two Vexilars, an underwater camera and more. Other gifts were given out with each fish caught. "I'd guess we gave out at least 50-75 prizes throughout the day," said KBM's Lee Harris.
