In the Upper Peninsula, the Wakefield fire department in Gogebic (Go-GEY’-bic) County is holding an ice fishing contest Saturday. In Michigan’s Thumb, there will be an ice fishing contest Saturday and Sunday during Caseville’s annual shanty days festival in Huron County.

Seven Lakes State Park in Oakland County will have fishing equipment available during a fishing derby Saturday.
