ALAMEDA - The Souris-Moose Creek Wildlife Federation held its fifth annual ice fishing tournament at Grant Devine Lake on March 18.

There were 70 anglers who participated.

Shane Derby had the award for the longest walleye at 21 inches. Derek Cambell was second at 16.75 inches and Kevin Beaudoin was third at 16 inches.

Randy George won for the longest pike at 33 inches. Kyle Boyes was second at 31 inches and Michael Bittman was third at 29 inches.

The perch pot raffle was won by Darin Mcnabb at 11.5 inches.

Souris-Moose Creek Wildlife chairman Cory Rucks provided some regional background. “Our local club has 280 members. We meet monthly and continue to promote fishing, wildlife, and other gaming sports and interests in the area, including archery. Thank-you to all of those who turned out. I also wish to mention some of our committee members who helped, including vice-president Kent Reischke, treasurer Christy McNeil and fundraising chairman Kevin Lauritsen.”

The local federation is also planning to hold their 31st annual banquet and supper April 22 at the Oxbow Rink. It is their major fundraiser of the year. A portion of the proceeds will be used for a dock-replacement project.

In February, Souris-Moose Creek was honoured with a certificate of recognition from the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. Over time, they have donated more than $180,000. to the Habitat Trust Fund.

“Our organization is very honoured to have received this award,” said Rucks. “We are just doing our part promoting fishing and wildlife habitat in southeast Saskatchewan.”
