GRAY, Maine — One month after it was postponed because of thin ice, the third annual Crystal Lake Ice Fishing Derby was held last Saturday.

Several hundred anglers competed for more than $10,000 in prizes for everything from the biggest fish to the most patriotic ice shanty.

Clint Jones of Casco won the grand prize, hauling in a 3.14-pound brook trout.

Proceeds from the event benefit Maine military families, the Hooked on Fishing program and local schools.
