Each year, on the first Saturday in February, anglers from far and wide travel to Tupper Lake for The Annual Northern Challenge Ice Fishing Derby.

This Northern Pike contest populates Simon Pond with over a thousand fishermen & women who compete for the over $40,000 in cash and prizes.

Whether you are a participant, or a spectator, this is a "must see" event to add to your winter calendar. A whole "community for a day" springs up on the ice, from shanties with curtains in the window to the classic upturned bucket seat. Food, visiting, and the excitement of a catch being rushed to the weighing trailer -- it's all here.
