Fourth annual ice fishing tourney set for next weekend

The tournament is open to two-person teams and registration begins at 6 a.m. at Forest City Outdoors west of Gettysburg by East Whitlock Bay.

There are two divisions; an open class with for spearing and lines, and pro class for hook and line fishing only.

The club is primarily in existence to encourage a fun and safe atmosphere to help both kids and adults alike enjoy the hunting and fishing heritage that comes with living in Potter County. Membership to the club helps with upkeep and expenses, but the club’s shooting range is open to everyone, as is the upcoming ice fishing tournament.
