CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY WITH SOME ICE FISHING — Then 13-year-old Nathaniel, left, and Brody — who celebrated his ninth birthday on Feb. 18, 2018 — Lovejoy from Williamsburg each had two successful days of fishing during last year’s Schoodic Lake Ice Fishing Derby. The two caught five pickerel each on both days for a total of 10 fish apiece and 20 together for the brothers. Nathaniel and Brody Lovejoy were fishing at Ebeemee Lake and registered their fish at the Milo Fire Station. The derby takes place on several lakes and proceeds benefit Milo Fire Department charities and events. This 57th annual derby will be Saturday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, Feb. 17 and more information is at http://www.trcmaine.org/fishingderby. In 2018 770 total fish were registered between the two days.
