2 Annual SJASD Divisional Ice Fishing Derby

The 2nd annual SJASD High School Ice Fishing Derby took place on March 12 2020 with students participating from all high schools in the St James School Division. The students experienced great weather, great prizes.and great learning opportunites around the use of fishing equipment and species identification, 2020 saw the edition of Jameswood School! Everyone involved had a memorable time fishing with their peers out on the ice. The fish did not cooperate like they have in past. The 2019 derby saw a record setting 166 fish caught by 86 anglers. However the 2020 edition of the division derby had 151 anglers but only 6 fish landed. Despite the tough conditions St James Collegiate was able to secure 2 nice Walleyes and took home the trophy. Big thanks to Dustin Bruce for organizing and to Darren Deserranno, Steve Christie, Tyler Metcalfe, Jason Bilous and again Dustin Bruce who arrived in the dark to make sure 200 holes were pre-drilled.
