HURLEYVILLE - The Hurleyville Fire Department in cooperation with the Town of Fallsburg Youth Commission will be holding their 32nd Annual Ice Fishing Contest, Saturday, February 8. The contest will take place on Morningside Lake, 11 Morningside Road in Hurleyville from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration will take place the day of the contest at the lake, registration is $5.00 for adults and free for those 15 and under.
This is our 32nd annual contest and we are holding our annual Super Raffle that day. 1st place is a 55 inch Vizio smart TV, second is a 50 inch TV, third is a 32 inch, fourth is a Canvas Collapsible Party Wagon and fifth is a set of five deluxe tipups with running flag, a HT jig pole and jigs. You don't have to be there to win. See any Hurleyville firefighter for a ticket.
Refreshments and bait will be available. We will also drill holes for you if needed.
There will be an adult and youth division with trophies for first, second and third in the following categories; perch, pan fish, bullhead, walleye and pickerel. All fish must be legally caught and of legal size.
There is also a special Firemen's Contest. The Rich Farquhar Memorial Chief's Cup, it goes to the top firemen's fishing team. A team can be one, ten or as many that shows up. All team members MUST belong to the same fire department. As in the past the cup is passed from year to year to the winning team. There is also a first, second and third place team trophy in the firemen's contest. Last year's winner, the Neversink Fire Department will be out in full force to defend the cup that they won. I'm sure past champions Smallwood Mongaup Valley, Monticello, Tappan and the Loch Sheldrake Fire Departments will be there in force to try and fish it away from them.
This contest has produced some real big fish in past years. As in the past a good time is had by all.
