Curtis Lions Kids’ Fish Coop

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

Originally called Dan’s Fish Coop that, it evolved into the Curtis Winter Carnival. Up to 1,200 rainbow trout were loaded into an underwater “coop”, a 50-foot-by-50-foot enclosure, and kids caught them left and right. In the fishing competition at the end, kids won massive prizes. In 2006, the young winner got a fishing boat complete with a motor.

After a hiatus of more than a decade, Duberville is recruiting a team to revive the fish coop.

The newly coined Curtis Lions Kids’ Fish Coop begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 17 on South Manistique Lake. That’s President’s Day weekend and Free Fishing Weekend. The Manistique Lake Lions Club is assisting as host sponsor.

There will be a tethered hot air balloon and possibly fireworks!
