Last weekend’s Royal Canadian Legion Frostbite Derby saw 46 fish brought in by its 105 participants.

These fish did three things.

For one, they provided fisheries biologist Georgina Fosker with samples, which she’ll use to further various studies being done on the local watershed to determine the health of local fisheries.

The second thing these fish did was determine the derby’s winner, with Terry Amber placing first, with 2.82 pounds. Amber was followed by Don Daigle (2.19), Barney Edgar (1.99), Tony McKee (1.99), and Mark Hanna (1.96).

The third thing was, of course, provide fun, with the lake dotted with fishermen for the morning and early afternoon, and the local Legion full of excited fishing enthusiasts throughout the afternoon.
