Fishin’ For A Great Weekend

With the return of winter this week, the 20th Annual Schroon Lake Ice Fishing Derby looks set to have a terrific turnout this year, organizers say.

“With the snow today, that’s going to help us keep the ice temperatures cold,” Schroon Lake Fish and Game Club President Don Sage told us. “You don’t want it breaking up on a weekend like this.”

“Overall the conditions look good, but we are a bit concerned with the rain (in the forecast) on Saturday.”

The Tournament officially kicks off at daylight Saturday and goes through to 4 pm on Sunday.

So far about 110 advance tickets have been sold with many walk-ins expected Friday night and Saturday morning. The entry fee is $15.

“We had 230 entries last year and I think we are on track to do the same this year. Our records was 450 a few years back,” Don said.

Remembering Scaroon Manor

As the new Scaroon Manor day use site was re-launched today, it's time to reflect on what the old place looked like. Hard to image that Scaroon once featured 100 buildings, housed 800 guests, attracted top notch entertainers, had its own golf course, marina, tennis court complex, basketball court with lights, roller skating ring and handball courts. All of it thriving until the 1960s, when resorts like this fell out of favor. Did you ever go to The Manor back in the day? Share your memories in comments.
