Hundreds gathered on Spirit Lake Saturday for the annual Menahga Fishing Derby.

The derby was rescheduled from the previous Saturday because of an ice storm that created bad driving conditions.


"We ended up having great weather by switching days," said Dave Treinen, chairman of the event.

He estimates between 300 and 400 people attended the fishing event, although it's not just about fishing.
