World's largest charitable ice fishing contest set for Jan. 25


The 24th annual Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, on Hole-in-the-Day Bay of Gull Lake.

The Jaycees received an event permit Tuesday, Jan. 14, from the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Department. Sheriff Todd Dahl and Sgt. Adam Kronstedt met the Brainerd Jaycees on Gull Lake’s Hole-in-the-Day Bay to verify the ice conditions and found 17-19 inches of clear, consistent ice throughout the contest site.
