MANITOULIN ISLAND (November 24, 2023) — For the first time since 2020, the Manitoulin Ice Showdown is making a triumphant return to the ice through a partnership with Wikwemikong Tourism, Explore Manitoulin, Wiikwemkoong Anglers, and Bayside Resort on February 17, 2024.

Manitoulin Island has some of the best fishing anywhere all year round, just ask Bob Izumi, a special guest at the record-breaking Manitoulin Ice Showdown in February 2020! In 2020, the Showdown welcomed over 700 anglers competing for over $50,000 in cash and prizes on Manitowaning Bay and Lake Manitou.

The 2024 event will welcome back anglers in a one-day derby format on two lakes on February 17 with a derby social and prize table to follow on the Saturday night. Organizers once again expect participants to come to Manitoulin Island from across the province to compete for huge cash and product prizes. Expect to see popular contests such as the Tagged Fish and Mystery Weight along with the top 10 prizes for each lake.

Tickets will go on sale on December 8 and will be available soon at select outlets on Manitoulin and Sudbury just in time for Christmas. Makes a great gift! Stay tuned for more details from the Manitoulin Ice Showdown team as they become available, including the full derby prizes.

The Manitoulin Ice Showdown could not happen without the generous support our sponsors and volunteers. To learn more about sponsoring or volunteering for the event, contact Jason Manitowabi: jason@wikytours.com
