2021 Polar Fest Poles N Holes Fishing Derby
Join us at the 11th Annual Poles N Holes Fishing Derby on February 13, 2021 at Little Lake Detroit in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. With the temperatures expected to dip to dangerously low levels on Saturday, February 6th (the originally scheduled date), the Poles N Holes Fishing Derby Committee has opted to postpone the Live Derby until February 13. The Poles N Holes Fishing Derby helps kick off the annual Detroit Lakes Polar Fest winter event Polar Fest. Detroit Lakes Breakfast Rotary hosts the annual Poles N Holes Fishing Derby each February (first Saturday of Detroit Lakes Polar Fest) offering thousands of dollars in prizes and providing fun for the whole family! This derby has raised nearly $200,000 in funds to support area literacy, youth sports, senior citizens programs and community projects.
During the winter, ice fishing reigns as one of the most popular Minnesotan winter activities. And although some may fish alone and find peace and solitude whilst reeling in nice walleyes, ice fishing lends itself to friend and family bonding time. Rent a fish house in Detroit Lakes to pursue walleye, northern, bass or crappies. Contact the Chamber of Commerce office at 218-847-9202 for ice fish house rentals.
