Ice Fishing Tourneys

Thank you again to all of our true grit ice fisherman who participated in Timberland Bait's Annual Ice Fishing tournaments. We had 410 registered tournament entries across both Canadohta Lake (262) and Conneaut (150). Weather was 50 degrees different for the two tourneys.  On Feb. 8 for Canadohta Lake, weather was a balmy -11.  On Feb. 22 for Conneaut, weather was a spring-like 40.  We would also like to thank the volunteers, sponsors, staff and fans of the tourneys, not all of whom fish, but support the tourneys by cheering on the fisherman or through lending a hand, delivering food, helping work the tourneys, or donate items.  We are all one, big Timberland Bait family and we appreciate your support.  We are already planning ahead for next year's tourneys.  Please be safe, and stop by the bait shop to see us!
