Last Ice Derby of the year... And the ice is good!

Hermann’s Lowlife Bar and Grill will host it’s Ice Fishing Derby this Sunday, February 27 at Neilon’s Channel, Port Barrington, IL. (300 Center St.)

Sign up begins at 5:30 AM.  Cost is $5 entry, $5 big fish kitty.  For details call 847 639 9644.

I received an email from Marcy at Hermann’s, giving a report on the ice as of Wednesday.  Here is what she said….

Hi guys! The derby is ON for this Sunday Feb. 27th. It is safe to get on ice from shore. Last few days, we’ve had good fishing. Today one fisherman got 24 bluegill and a couple 2lb bass (he released the bass). Cold nights are keeping our ice solid – we’re at 14 inches today, compared with 10 inches last week. Please call if you have any questions! 847-639-9644. Thanks for everyone’s support! Sorry about parking fee, but that keeps the snow plowed and the docks repaired. Marcy

 I stopped by there last weekend.  Dispite the rain, anglers were on the channels and getting fish.  This was the first time I was able to meet Wayne and Marcy.  Nice people and they have GREAT CHILI… 

They’ll have food and beverages, bait available.  Parking is $5.  Hope to see you out there….
