Knee Deep Club Hosts First Ice Fishing Contest Since 2018

The Knee Deep Club of Lake Hopatcong, N.J. held its first ice fishing contest since 2018. The February 21 contest was a great success. 124 entries turned out for a wonderful bright and sunny day of fishing on the ice. The bite was very good and a large number of fish were caught and weighed in. We are hopeful that we might get another contest in before the ice goes away. Thank you to all who turned out to support the Knee Deep Club and the great sport of ice fishing on Lake Hopatcong.
