10th annual Atomic Ice Derby held at Lake Onalaska

Lake Onalaska hosted an Ice Derby of their own Saturday. Dedicated ice fishers could start fishing for the derby as early as midnight Saturday morning.

Then weigh-in’s for fish were required to be done by 1 p.m. Afterward, tens of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes were given away at Moxie’s bar to those who competed.

The grand prize winner took home a $5,000 prize.

“It looks pretty packed in here, OK. Moxie’s did a nice job. We got fire pits, we got the heaters outside, we got inside food, we’ve got games going on. I would say it was a turnout that everybody could say is real good,” said Ice Derby organizer Scott Gartner.

This was the 10th annual Atomic Ice Derby.
