First annual fishing tournament

2019 is the inaugural year for LICA’s fishing tournament.  LICA members have been having fun competing for one of three traveling trophies, for the longest bass, walleye, or esox (northern pike or muskie). Competition is open through the entire fishing season, from the fishing opener in May until the end of ice fishing season in February.


Currently, Mac Smith is ahead in the esox category, with an 52 inch muskie. Perry Good is the current bass trophy holder, for a 21.5 inch large mouth bass. No entries yet in the walleye category, but the tournament continues through ice fishing season, so let's get out there! Those walleye are waiting!

All LICA members are eligible to submit entries. For more information, contact this year’s fishing commissioner: Tom Blanck (
