59th annual Schoodic Lake Ice Fishing Derby taking off this weekend

MILO — Grab your fishing gear because the 59th annual Schoodic Lake Ice Fishing Derby is taking place this weekend.

The Milo Fire Department will be hosting the derby Feb. 13 and 14.

Anglers can catch fish at Schoodic, Boyd, Ebeemee and Seboeis lakes during the event with a $10 entrance fee.

Assistant Fire Chief Michael Harris said a 2020 ATV and cash are among the prizes for the event.

“The regulations set forth from the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will be followed,” he said. “So what that means is if you’re coming to register a fish, they will only let one person in at a time. Everyone must be wearing a mask and practice social distancing.”

Harris said a dollar from each ticket benefits the Make A Wish Foundation.
