Tykes set for Sunday

This year, the Tyke’s Kids Fishing Derby will be held on the ice around South Bay on Sunday, March 1.

Fishing for the Tykes Kid Ice Fishing Derby starts at 9 a.m. in the morning and lasts until 3 p.m. Phillips said that those fishing are responsible for following state regulations when it comes to ice fishing.

“We are not going to be right at the boat launch this year,” said Tom Phillips, organizer of the derby. “We will have the free hot dog and hamburger stand set up on Bill Jones’ property. People will be responsible for their own safety on the ice and it is their responsibility to follow the state laws on machines and while fishing.”

At 3 p.m., the festivities will begin at the Bayview Gardens Restaurant.

“That’s when we draw the tickets and give all of the kids their prizes,” said Phillips. “The prizes include poles, reels, fishing equipment and the Lucky Buck, which my uncle always gave out every year. We give them out to everyone regardless.”

Along with the support of friends of the family, Phillips said that the organizers are also grateful for the help that they receive from local bait shops.

“We have had some great support from the local bait shops,” he said. “They all deserve a lot of credit.”

Phillips said that he hopes that the kids will have a great day out on the ice on March 1.

“I hope that the weather holds up so we have good ice and no problems,” he said.
