We also gave away an auger donated by the Landing Bar and Grill the winner of the auger drawing was Kirk Ehlke.
Reminder, the poster says no vehicles on the ice after 11:30.
We will allow atvs, utvs, and snowmobiles to remain parked on the ice, but there will be absolutely no driving them during tournament hours or you will be disqualified from the tournament.
That means no driving them to bring in fish, run to the bathrooms, or to go up to the bar.

Ice Fishing Derby – Will be held on January 16th at Sibley. Ice is building slower this year and conditions likely will not allow vehicles on the ice the day of the tournament. If you have a permanent ice house you want to use during the derby plan on putting it out on the ice the night before the derby or sooner. Unless things drastically change we will not be letting pickups out on the ice in the fishing area! We will have ATVs available to help haul people and their gear out to the ice during the tournament. There will be updates on KOVC and our Facebook page before the tournament.
