Link to Jaycee's Ice Fishing Extravaganza 2016
With this years warm weather, I am starting to wonder if they are going to announce a new date for the Ice Fishing Extravaganza.
I drive by Gull Lake every week, and lately I am surprise to see it still looks like this:
Either way, it is a great event that raises a
great deal of money and awareness for charities, so I hope the event
still takes place, but I doubt we will have enough ice if conditions
don't change soon.
However, as a native northern Minnesotan, I know things can change quick!
Here is some information on the event from icefishing.org:
History of the Ice Fishing Extravaganza
the early 1990s the Brainerd Jaycees had a desire to develop a
signature project—a project that would rally members, raise money for
local charities, and provide avenues for individual growth, personal
development, and leadership. With the first contest being held in
January 1991, it is certain the founders never expected this event would
become the world’s largest ice fishing contest and put Brainerd, MN, on
the map with a winter event that generates over $1-million in revenue
for area businesses and over $150,000 for area charities annually
