The 9th Annual Poles N Holes Fishing derby will go on as planned on Little Detroit Lake in Detroit Lakes on Saturday, February 9th. Despite the fact that there are large amounts of snow on the ice and some colder than average temperatures, organizers recognize that the hearty Poles N Holes participants will come dressed and prepared to have a lot of fun and pursue one of our lucrative fishing derby or raffle prizes.
Participants are encouraged to come prepared to deal with the elements by dressing accordingly, being prepared to keep your fishing hole open with a chisel or other means, and taking advantage of the shuttle service provided by the Jaycees as the snow will make parking on the ice a virtual impossibility.
Gates will open at 9 and the derby will begin at noon. The Holiday Inn will have a nice warm tent with food and beverage available for purchase. The derby registration tent will also be available throughout the day for folks to warm themselves as well.
