We are getting ready for the the Second Annual Jack Traps Youth Ice Fishing Derby, sponsored by JackTraps.com in association with the Sebago DerbyFest and local sponsors. This is a free event, with no registration fees.
DATE: Friday, February 25, 2011 (during school vacation)
WHEN: from 8AM – 2PM
WHERE: Cochnewagon Lake, Monmouth, ME @ the Monmouth Beach
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Friday, February 19, 2011
This derby is an introduction to ice fishing open to all children twelve and under. Children familiar with ice fishing and those who are not, but are interested, are equally encouraged to participate. All participants must pre-register before February 19, 2011.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment, ready to fish. There will be some traps and bait on the ice for kids to fish with if they do not have their own. All participants must arrive dressed in very warm clothing, including boots, hats, and mittens.
