Southern Door ice fishing hosts first tournament

New holes were cut at Idlewild Golf Course Saturday but they weren’t on the greens and were filled with fishing lines instead of pins. The inaugural Southern Door Ice Fishing Tournament included participants from Sturgeon Bay and a partial squad from North Fond du Lac High Schools in addition to the host Eagles. Shanties popped up on the three ponds that dot the links near Cherryland Airport. Southern Door High School principal Steve Bousley talked about the tournament’s set up.


Prizes were awarded in each category. First place received a $150 gift card to Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shop. Second was $100 and third place was $75. Bousley’s enthusiasm for the event was infectious Saturday. Roughly 30 participants braved the elements to take part.
