Worthley and Patneaude, members of the Mexico Lions Club, got the fish for the club's Larry Mercier Memorial 33rd Annual Ice Fishing Derby at the pond Saturday, Feb. 18.
The angler who catches the specially tagged grand-prize brookie during the derby from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. will net $2,000. Not to mention bragging rights, because it has never been done legally during the derby.
But this year could be the year, because Patneaude is expecting a heavy turnout since the Sebago Ice Fishing Derby on the same day was canceled due to poor ice conditions.
