Stone Lake Fish Bowl returning

CASSOPOLIS — It looks like the weather is going to cooperate with the Cassopolis Main Street Committee’s Stone Lake Fishing Bowl.

The community tried to resurrect the fishing tournament last year, but had to cancel when the weather turned extremely warm in late January and extended into February.

The Main Street Committee decided to give it another go, and although registration has been slow to this point, all signs point to the fishing tournament being Feb. 10 on Stone Lake.

“As the president of the Main Street Committee, I think that the ice fishing tournament will be a huge success for our community and really attract a lot of people to our downtown,” Ben Anderson said. “There are some exciting changes coming to Cassopolis and we want to make sure we keep the excitement going.”

Rick Drews is the event manager for the Fish Bowl. He is hoping people are waiting to see what the weather is going to be like before entering the tournament.

“Registration has been slow so far, as most people are probably waiting until we get closer to the event to see what ice conditions are,” he said.

The tournament will run from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 10.

Fishermen can either register online at eventbrite.com/e/stone-lake-fishing-bowl-tickets-42106333176 or at Marcello’s Pizza until 7 a.m. Feb. 10.

Cost is $25. The tournament will award $500 prizes for the longest fish in each of three categories — bluegill/sunfish, perch and crappie.

Check-in will also be held at Marcello’s and there will be a leaderboard to fishermen and spectators can keep up the current standings.

The presentation of the cash prizes will also be at Marcello’s. Judging will end at 2 p.m. The presentation will immediately follow.

There will also be giveaways from TNT Jigs, Morning Wood Custom Rods and Marcellos’.
