Brainerd Ice Fishing Extravaganza

Bitter cold weather faces the expected 10-thousand anglers for the $150-thousand Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake Saturday. The high is expected to reach just above zero, with wind chills well below zero.
Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl has measured 14 to 16 inches of ice on Hole in the Day Bay, where the contest will be held. He tells KLKS News, extra deputies will be on duty to help with crowd control. Sheriff Dahl says there will be congestion on Highway 371, and is encouraging motorists to slow-down.
