Manistee County Sport Fishing Association Fun Fish Winners Named



ONEKAMA — The Manistee County Sport Fishing Association’s Fun Fish took place over the weekend and brought about 35 adults and children onto the ice.

The winners according to the association’s Facebook page were:

• Jerry Brown took first place at 7.2 lbs pike and Greg Bennett was second in the category at 4.35 lbs. Brown won $122.50 in cash prizes.

• Mike Chmielewski and Mindy Sedelmaier are tied for panfish with perch at 1.35 pounds. They split the prize money with $52.50 each.

Phil Sedelmaier, organizer of the event, said of the winning fish that “you never know what’s going to be caught”, which means it might take a big fish to land the winner for this category of ‘species, or that it may be a small one.

He said the temperatures and the ice were in good shape but the wind was strong this weekend.

The official weigh station was at Papa J’s Ice Cream and Eatery where coffee and food were provided. Young anglers also marked fishing rods at the event.

The next Manistee County Sport Fishing Association event, the Small Boat Big Fish Tournament, is scheduled for May 14. This tournament features anglers who focus on salmon and trout on Lake Michigan.

More information about this and other tournaments and events should be shared on the association’s Facebook page.
