Held in February during the MI DNR free fishing weekend on McDonald Lake in Gulliver, MI.
Fun family weekend.
Prizes for adult perch, walleye, and pike.
Kids receive registration gift and prizes available for any fish caught.
Recent update on The McDonald Lake Ice Fishing Derby is being planned, as usual. The derby is always held on the free fishing weekend, February 17. We do this in hopes that more people will come out and enjoy as no fishing license is required by the state. We are hoping for cold weather to return and produce more ice. There has been a few locals out over the weekend fishing the lake shore. It is ultimately your decision to go out on the lake, but we do not want anyone to get hurt, so please use caution.
