Ishpaagoonika Deep Snow Camp
On Saturday, the day began with temperatures holding a steady 12 degrees on Pelican Lake in Oneida County. Attendees got to try out their new fish decoys and do some jigging in the holes cut into the ice.
There were lots of Perch swimming around. Pelican Lake has a maximum depth of approximately 39 feet, and a monster 48 inch Musky weighing close to 40 pounds was an interesting catch!
Lunch was served, and it was a time to share fishing stories. Activities continued into the evening back at the Rec Center. The event wrapped up on Sunday.
A big thank you to our staff, volunteers and participants for making this year extra exciting!
