Jimmy Jackfish Derby

The Jimmy Jackfish Ice Fishing Derby will return in a few months.


The event was started by the McLauchlan Family in the 80s to help raise funds for community projects.


Johanna McLauchlan says that since the event's start, funds have been raised for the park, recycling programs, and, most recently, a boat launch.


"What we redid the boat launch on the East Shore.  We had great cooperation from the Manitoba Resources and Ocean Fisheries.  And it took us three years to raise enough money to refit the boat launch, and it was completed last year."


This year, they are looking at purchasing new equipment for the park.


They are also looking for community input as proposals are needed to determine the projects the community wants to see completed.


Early bird tickets are available until January 31st and can be found at
