LVVA will be hosting its Annual Ice Fishing Derby on Bangs Lake in Wauconda, one the largest and most successful ice fishing events in Northern Illinois. The derby will have a post-event concert featuring bands like Made in a America and A Tribute to Toby Keith. Anglers can win raffle items and the Chicago Blackhawks Ice Girls will be in attendance.
Tent doors open at 5 a.m., located at the LVVA beach on Edgewater Parkway. All participants MUST check-in at the event tent before fishing. At the tent, you will get a registration number and flag. Once registered, participants may relocate to wherever they choose to fish. When you catch a fish, raise your flag and an judge will come to you to measure and report the size. Registration fee is $20. Children age 14 and younger, as well as active-duty military (I.D. required), can fish for free.
