Lines are out of the water as Chapleau's 22nd annual Pike Ice Fishing Derby is now in the books.
All 800 tickets for the derby were sold a month early, with sunny skies and relatively warm weather for the numerous anglers out on the Chapleau River and Mulligan's Bay.
Ingo Weber reeled in the largest pike - a 7.13-pounder just before 9 o'clock - to win the $10,000 first prize, while Cindy Bernard's 6.95-pounder won the second prize of a Honda ATV, and Brett Robinson claimed the $4000 third prize with a 5.95-pounder.
The entry prize of a 2019 Dodge Ram 4x4 went to Gilles Couture of Chapleau, while Jamie Fiaschetti won $1736.50 through the 50/50 draw, and Lou White won a ticket for the 2020 Derby.
As no-one caught the tagged fish during the derby, anglers are still able to get a prize: if they catch the tagged fish before the end of 2019, they'll get a free entry into the 2020 Derby.
