Check the ice as you prepare for this weekend’s Fishing Derby

Ice thickness and quality remain inconsistent on Maine’s lakes and ponds, but people can still enjoy some ice fishing if they’re careful.

Checking the thickness of the ice every few feet and having the proper safety equipment with you can save your life.

The Hardwater Hitmen Pike Derby scheduled for Saturday, February 10, was canceled last month due to unstable ice conditions. The annual derby, held on Sydney’s Messalonskee Lake, raises money to purchase lifetime fishing licenses for Maine children. The Derby also uses the Great, Long, North and Ingham basins.
