Winter is here, and that means it's almost time for some serious ice fishing. Of course, that is once the temperature drops a bit more and the ice freezes over, so it's safe.

If you're planning out your upcoming ice fishing derbies, make sure you put down Cony High School's Project Graduation Ice Fishing Derby. To raise money for Project graduation while keeping everyone safe and socially distanced, Cony Seniors are hosting an Ice Fishing Derby. The derby will take place in Winthrop on Cobbossee Lake on Saturday, March 6th.
