The almost annual crappie derby is on for this year. It is scheduled to be held this Saturday at Whitney Point Lake.

The Whitney Point Sportsmen's Association recently evaluated the lake's ice conditions and told Broome County everything is a go. The purse for this year's competition is more than $13,000. Registration is only $2 for people 12 years of age and older. In addition to the ice fishing, there will be exhibits from the Ross Park Zoo and Finch Hollow. Broome County's Under Water Dive Team will also perform.
