Cub Scout Pack 25 Enjoys Ice Fishing

About 30 scouts, along with parents and friends, descended on the Hudson Fish and Game club early Saturday morning for ice fishing.  For many, this adventure was the first experience catching fish through a hole augured in the pond.

Members of the fish and game club provided a great breakfast for the scouts and their families prior to fishing.  The parents made hot chocolate for the kids by the campfire. There were 27 entrants to the derby plus leaders and other parents.  Pete’s Gun Shop provided bait for the morning outing.

The fish and game pond is a catch and release pond; all the fish, after being quickly weighted and measured, where sent back down the hole in the ice.

Lexi Broucher’s 13-inch rainbow trout won the first place prize of a new fishing rod and a fully stocked tackle box.  The second place winner was Pat Minuti.
