Annual Ice Fishing Derby nets much needed funds for the LLSC

On Sunday, February 9, 2014, the usual group of winter enthusiasts made their way onto the ice on Lake Simcoe to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) and trying to land the day’s biggest catch.

Even though there was a lot of ice and snow, the fish were scarce. Murray Backus from Fearman’s in Burlington won the prize for the biggest fish, which he donated generously back to the cause. The annual event, which took place at the Peninsula Resort in Pefferlaw, brought in $680 for the LLSC.

Thanks to everyone who attended!
