[Originally published March, 2022 for our 2022 Fishing Tournament. Updated January, 2023]

Last night, we released some BIG news!

We’re launching the first ever Pickerel for Parkinson’s virtual ice fishing tournament, which starts next Saturday and runs for 16 days.

The idea came to us – of course – while we were sitting in the ice shack, fishing: Let’s do an ice fishing tournament!

Why, you ask?

  • First, to have some fun (wellness) before winter is over
  • Second, draw some attention to Parkinson’s Disease and also steer some funds toward PD research*

How do I participate, you ask?

  • Download the FishDonkey app, by Fishery Innovations for your mobile device. For more info, visit FishDonkey.com [Note: Tournament is Closed]
  • Launch the app, and select “FISH IN A TOURNAMENT”
  • Scroll down through the list of tournaments to find Pickerel for Parkinson’s tournament
  • Join the tournament to register. The registration fee is $25.00 CDN, and FishDonkey collects a $3.25 fee at checkout (that fee goes to Fish Donkey)
  • Get your fishing gear ready to go for Saturday, March 12
  • Fish from Saturday, March 12 through Sunday, March 27
  • *Important – all fish must be entered through the app – for more information, read the tournament overview on the app
  • The prize purse will grow based on the number of anglers registered
  • Prizes will be awarded after results are validated, probably by Monday, March 28

You’re already at Hill Country Canada, but visit Dan’s Wild Outdoors to experience a taste of outdoors life in NW Ontario.

*Approximately half of the registration fees will go toward the prize purse, and the other half to Parkinson’s research (we support the Royal University Hospital Foundation).
