CANCELED: Crappie Derby Won't Happen This Year

Posted: Updated:
WHITNEY POINT, N.Y. -

The "almost annual" Crappie Derby has been canceled. Organizers issued that cancellation, saying while the ice is thick enough, it's pulled away from the shore too much, making getting on the ice too dangerous to hold the event. Originally set to take place on February 16th, the event will not be rescheduled. Organizers are now setting their sights towards 2020.

The event, held on Whitney Point Lake, has a history of getting canceled due to weather issues. The derby was held last year, after 2 years of cancellations.
