Winners for 2016-17 Kid's Fishing Contest Are......

We had 13 entries this year.  Each entry's name was put into a hat and drawn at random to determine the winners.  Each winner received a DQ certificate at the annual meeting or will be receiving one in the mail when the contact information is confirmed.  See the individual fishing stories for each entry by following this link.

The goal of this contest is to encourage kids and their families to fish in Long Lake.  It does not matter if you catch a giant Northern Pike or a pretty little Pumpkin Seed.  It is the fun factor that counts!
