Annual FLF Ice Fishing Tournament

FLF’s 2022 7th Annual
Ice Fishing Tournament
Was a huge success!

Fairmont Lakes Foundation Inc recently held their 7th annual winter ice fishing contest. It turned out to be a beautiful Saturday that 29th day of January. We had a great turnout as the tournament sold out with 150 participants. It seemed like everyone was really enjoying the day. Catching fish, spending time with family and friends.

It was really great to see the abundance of activity on the lake that day. There was a new twist to this year’s contest as we added a yellow bass feature. Whoever caught the most weight in yellow bass would win $200.00 cash thanks to Legend Guide Service. Then Pat Hardt and Larry Kling donated enough money to pay down to 4th place! Thanks guys!

We hope to see you at the 8th annual ice fishing event which will be the last Saturday in January 2023.

Please remember to frequent our great sponsors below!

Thank you,
