The free version of Ice Fishing Derby: It's a five day fishing derby with a twist. The forecast for the first day is pretty nice, but it's going to get much, much colder as the days go by. Start each day at the bait shop to get the tackle you need. Catch bluegills, crappie, perch, walleyes and northern pike. At the end of each day you'll collect cash at the weigh-in for the fish you've caught. Be sure to earn enough to pay for a portable shelter and heater or you're not likely to survive. Start with some basic gear and catch some panfish, then work your way up to catching the bigger fish. Once you have the necessities you might get yourself a sonar flasher or even an underwater camera system so you can see what's happening under the ice. Your goal is simple: Survive the tournament, and earn as much money as possible. Other fishermen may offer you some interesting trades out on the lake, but be careful what deals you accept!
The game is free but in-app purchases unlock a few items in the bait shop and give you the option of starting each tournament with more money.
Note: Some people have had problems running the previous version of the game due to a bug in iOS 8.0. Either updating your device to iOS 8.1 or updating the game to 1.06 should fix it. If you have any trouble with the game, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help.

Ratings and Reviews
A great game but I have few suggestions to add
I love the game but there’s a few downsides to it like you have to pay real life money for a good ice auger and shanty but I was thinking if u could update it to where you could choose from if u want to do a 5 day tournament or free play where u have unlimited time and I know it’s a lot to ask for but I was wondering if u could make it to where u could choose the spot u want to go
Best Game Ever
Ice fishing derby is a tasteful rendition of the hard water fishing world, the midwestern chatter in the background is a perfect touch to give the game atmosphere. Also, the fishing mechanics holds true to the old mantra of “keep it simple stupid!” To often fishing games have over-complicated mechanics that make them difficult or down right impossible to play. Furthermore, I enjoy the competitive aspect of the game. Much like an old arcade classic, my friends and I try to compete for the best score.
In short Ice Fishing Derby is a great game, that if nothing else will give you a laugh. However unlikely, I am patiently awaiting waiting the second installment. And just know that I do not think the developers of this game are a few fillets short of a fish fry! Cheers!
Love this game
I’m taking the time to write this review to explain how good the game is. It’s an extremely simple concept at this point that actually sums up the game/ sport of ice fishing. You start the game, you’re in the shop, you buy the basics, you fish. It’s really fun. Especially once you start unlocking the big equipment. Haven’t had a problem with this one running. I would absolutely love to see this game get massive! It just needs a few more things. It could use new locations, with different fish. You should be able to scout out locations and save them based on weather conditions. I love the concept of getting paid for every fish. Please please please update the game.
