The Lincoln County Fish & Game Association and Medomak Valley Land Trust hosted the second annual Youth Ice Fishing Day Saturday on Kaler’s Pond in Waldoboro. The fish and game association provided tip-ups, bait and lunch so the children could enjoy a day of ice fishing.

About 40 young anglers dropped their lines through the ice, and just about everyone pulled up a fish. The participants ranged from 2-year-olds to high school students, both girls and boys. One young fisherman caught a large pickerel, and he named it Fishzilla.

The fish and game association hosted a cookout on the ice and provided elk and moose burgers. Volunteers were at different places on the ice to bait the traps and show the children how to bring in the fish when the tips went up. When a flag went up, a dozen young anglers would run and skate toward the hole.

Volunteers with the fish and game association included David Trahan, Nick Nichols, Duncan and Becky Morrell, Kevin Benner, Andy Chapman and Jim Derby, among others. Liz Petruska and Lincoln Smith volunteered from the Medomak Valley Land Trust.
