Brained Jaycee's Ice Fishing Extravaganza gets go ahead from Sheriff

It's official. The Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza scheduled Jan. 24 on Gull Lake's Hole-in-the-Day Bay was given the go ahead Wednesday by Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl. Dahl and other members of the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office checked the thickness of the ice in two different locations on Gull Lake where the contest will take place to see if the sheriff's office would issue the Jaycees the appropriate permit for the event. Dahl said the ice thickness typically must be at least 17 inches or more in order for him to issue the permit.
