To stay within COVID regulations the registration will be drive thru at the gate house where you can remain in your vehicle. But if you want to pre-register you can get in touch with Cory Rucks at (306)-483-7218; Kevin at (306)-485-8334 or Richard at (306)-485-8076. You can also email

“Last year we had over 100 people at the event, we are hoping for a similar outcome this year,” Cory Rucks stated.

How the event will work is that you are given a measuring stick at registration unless you have one of your own from previous years. Once you catch your fish you will take a picture with your measuring stick and text it to the proper number. There are three different numbers to text for each individual type of fish you catch – pike, perch and walleye. You are allowed to fish anyways on Grant Divine Lake and you must hold a valid fishing license and all the Saskatchewan fishing rules and regulations will apply during this event.

Prize winners will be notified by phone and will be posted on the Souris Moose Creek Wildlife Federation Facebook page. The prizes are as follows:

Longest Pike and longest walleye, first place and $500 cash, second place, $250 VISA card, third place, $50 VISA card. As for the longest perch, an additional $25 per person can be given to enter the 50/50 perch pot. If no perch are caught a draw will be made from all entries.

For more information you can contact the above phone numbers or check out the club’s Facebook page.
