Fishing, fundraising on Island Lake

Free chili, prizes, a raffle and fish in a variety of species and sizes marked the Island Lake Lions Club’s annual ice fishing derby fundraiser. The fishing took place Saturday on Island Lake, with the headquarters at Eastway Park.

Hourly prizes were handed out for the longest fish in categories of largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye, channel catfish, crappie, bluegill and perch. Separate awards were given in the children and adult divisions. Mary Clark of Woodstock and her group of a half-dozen friends were among the participants. While fishing during the morning, they cooked a pot of venison chili, grilled burgers and served a barbecued pheasant for lunch.
