The annual Jimmy Jackfish Fishing derby was held at Rocky Lake on Saturday and it was a big success. There were over 600 hundred fishers from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta in attendance and the first fish was caught just moments after shotgun.
There were lots of prizes up for grabs this year including fishing poles, a snowblower, ice augers, and a pop-up ice shelter.
The top three winners this year are Stephen Yellowega taking home the grand prize of twenty thousand dollars, Jaret Ouilette won second place and seven thousand dollars, and the third place winner was Bernard Dyrkaz winning three thousand dollars.
All proceeds from the derby go towards various community programs in The Pas and area.
