Because of the unseasonable weather this winter, and unsafe ice conditions of Unity Pond, the Unity Fire Department is forced to cancel the event.

Unity Fire Department will host its third annual T-Pot Memorial Fishing Derby from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 5, on Unity Pond. Weigh-in will take place at Kanokolus Beach at the public boat landing on Kanokolus Road.

This derby includes first-, second- and third-place prizes for trout, bass, pickerel, perch and crappie. Tickets cost $10 per person and can be purchased in advance at Albion Bait, Depot Country Store, Chase Toys, Mac’s Hardware, Patterson’s Store, Parson’s Small Engine, and Kanokolus Beach on the day of the event.

Generous prizes from local businesses include a gas-powered ice auger, ice fishing traps, portables grills, gift certificates and more.

Proceeds will benefit Unity Fire Department’s Side by Side ATV fund. This ATV will be use for off-road rescues and wild land fire fighting.
