PERCHIN FOR MS - Lake Simcoe's Premier Ice Fishing Event March 4, 2017 - Sibbald Point Provincial Park

For The Cause

Perseverance, determination, and a little persistence…together with a positive attitude is what contestants of the 7th Annual Perchin for MS needed.  Well…it is what contestants of this fishing tournament have always needed.  Contestants have been faced with rain, gale force winds, blowing snow and this year -16c temperatures.  And again…they didn’t even get to fish.  Instead due to unseasonable temperatures, rain and poor ice conditions for the second year in a row, 400 participants showed up for a draw.


2017 Perchin for MS Ice Fishing Tournament is going to a draw!

For Immediate Release: February 25, 2017

It is with great disappointment that we announce the following:

With public safety concerns being at the forefront due to the current weather and change in ice conditions, we are making the decision to cancel the fishing component of the tournament this year.

The current ice conditions on Lake Simcoe out of Sibbald Point Provincial Park do not support a safe environment for the large number of participants expected. (500 plus).

We will therefore be going to a draw for cash and prizes as per tournament rules and past precedents.

The day will include the draw for cash and prizes, Barbeque, auctions and some fun raffles. Teams must be present to win cash and prizes.

Please arrive after 11am. The draw and Auctions will begin to take place at 12:30.
Please see our website for further details on the auction and day of events

Even without the ice, huge crowds attend Perchin for MS

In only its 6th year running, Perchin for MS sold out again this year with 500 participants.  How great was this...organizers couldn’t have been happier.  That was until the dreaded night when they finally had to make the decision to pull the plug on this years fishing. With 500 contestants, there was no way they could hold the tournament on the ice they had.  Then the questions started?  What now? Who would come to a fishing tournament with no fishing?  It wasn't looking good...well at least to most.
