NEAR AUGUSTA - Every year hundreds of people come to Willow Creek for the annual ice fishing derby - but a quick look around and you can see there is a lot more fun then there is actual fishing.
Cord Houston said, "There is so many things you can do on the ice, if the fishing is no good, you can run around and play hockey and stuff like that."
But for those who actually do want to try their hand at ice fishing, a power auger is used to drill hole in the ice.
After clearing out the slush and ice, it's time to bait...and sit and wait.
