The 11th-annual walleye and bass classic will be held this weekend (Sept. 13 and 14) at Naicatchewenin FIrst Nation.
Boats launch at 8 a.m. and weigh ins start at 4 p.m.
This is always a fun-filled weekend with an abundance of amazing food to purchase. The anglers win great prizes.
It’s definitely an event that all people involved in the organization of the derby put their hearts and souls into.

A wise man says to his son: “My boy, when you accumulate the understanding to know why a pizza is made round, to be put in a square box, and is eaten in triangles, then son, you will be able to understand women.”
