The 54th Annual Chain O' Lakes Fishing Derby and Winter Festival, which began Saturday at the Thirsty Turtle Beach Bar and Grill on Channel Lake near Antioch, continues Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Northern Illinois Conservation Club-sponsored event featured good old-fashioned winter fun, including ice fishing, games for children and adults, food and raffles.
Hourly fishing prizes for the biggest and smallest fish were awarded to the anglers. More than $5,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded. The Thirsty Turtle is located at 42273 N. Woodbine Ave.
