Sibbald Point Provincial Park, Lake Simcoe: Despite almost constant rain and miserable fishing conditions, an astounding 78 teams competed in the first annual PERCHIN FOR MS Fundraiser Perch Fishing Tournament Sat. March 5, 2011.
"I was completely flabbergasted that so many anglers came out to fish this event," said host and organizer Doug Poirier. "These anglers all heard the same weather forecasts we did - and all knew the rains were coming. They decided to fish anyway and although they got wet, they did not let the rain dampen their spirits," he said.
