2016 SHS Ice Tournament Results


Tourney Event Chair Russ reports:

The event was held during Michigan’s Winter 2016 Free Fishing weekend.  The Saturday, February 13th, 2016 “Winter Safari” Ice Tournament weather was a bit challenging.  We had a very cold day that was windy at times.   The fishing could have been better, but we had about 18 brave souls on School Section Lake, 3 of which were in the 12 years old and under Youth Division.   After a slow day of fishing we gathered at Maria”s Lonestar  Hometown Pub for food, prizes and measuring of the fish that were caught to determine the day’s best angler.

The turnout for a GREAT MEAL of a sumptuous mess of bluegill was 38.  After dinner, the prize ceremony was conducted and 36 attendees walked away with awesome prizes!

We had  3 Bluegills that were worthy to measure this year, no Perch or Crappie and no fish in the Youth 12 and under division.

Top Anglers of the Day

 1st Place Jeff Bartells  8-3/4″
                 2nd Place tied Zach Nelson and Russ Pomeroy  8-9/16″
