Ice Fishing Derby's
« on: Jan 03, 2017, 08:03 PM »
Did anyone else see the talk on here about a Spring Lake ice fishing derby in Hobart this year? I've been trying to find info about it, does anyone have the details?

Also, does anyone know of any others that will be going on? I know Loomis is having one Jan 28.

When I google the address it puts me next to Mac Joy Lake. Is this the same lake that everyone is talking about? I also see Robinson Lake is down the road from Mac Joy, but I've never been out there so I just want to know where I am going! Thanks! Is there a lake of the map we can get anywhere?

Just to clear things up, Mac Joy and Spring lake are one in the same. I'm a member of the ikes.  Sorry about not being able to post the upcoming derby for all to see. I've been on this site since 2012 but the "Gestapo" says I'm not active enough. I don't sit on this site talking garbage...I'm out FISHING!!!

I hope with the cold temps coming at night that it locks it back up.  I have never fished this lake despite growing up right down the road...is there any insight into the type of fish in this lake?  is it gills/crappie and bass tourney?   Just wondering and thanks for any input and hope everyone gets to come out this weekend.

The Lake has abundant Bass and  Bluegill  with Crappie ,Perch, catfish  to round out the mix. Very little fishing pressure makes for a great fishery. The derby is for all species.
