Back by popular demand, is the $50,000 Hidden Weight Contest. Simply catch one of the first 120 fish and you’re automatically entered into the contest. If your fish matches the hidden weight, you win $50,000! If nobody matches the weight, then the angler with the closest weight will receive a Frabill Headquarters six-person ice shelter.cash
The Falcon Lake Winter Fish-Off is once again proudly supporting the St.Amant Autism Program. The tournament will be donating $1 from every ticket sold, as well as all the proceeds from on-ice bait sales. In addition, St.Amant will be doing a 50/50 draw on the ice! Last year’s 50/50 winner took home $3,595 and a total of $5,824 was raised for St.Amant!

unnamedAdult tickets are $50 before March 11, then $70. Second hole and kids are just $30. You can purchase tickets at 13 ticket vendors across Manitoba and NW Ontario, online at www.winterfishoff.com or over the phone at toll-free 1-866-676-FISH (3474).
