It. Is. Cold. Mother Nature turned on and we couldn’t be happier! I don’t think we’ve ever said that before. 

YOU ASKED FOR AN UPDATE, WE ANSWERED... "We are making ice, baby!"

The sub-zero temperatures we are experiencing are giving us high hopes of still having our Fishing Derby on February 17.  It’s only been cancelled once and we won’t call out the C-word for the pandemic that caused that. 

We have tickets sprinkled all over town, and the region for that matter, to make it easier to buy your tickets and get entered to win $10,000! The prizes don’t stop there. We have changed to more cash prizes to entice the participant and make pick-up or delivery easier if you are not present during the drawing.

There may be a village created for Hockey Day MN, but we’ve been creating a village off Springsteel Island for years during the Springsteel Fishing Derby! We have people that drill all the holes that morning. The fence line is put up to create our village on ice and enclose the fishing area. There are fish houses put out for shelters, weigh-in stations, and worker quarters.

Grab your best fishing rod, a bucket of minnows, and c’mon out! Guluk!
