GULL LAKE – More than 8,000 tickets have been sold for the 23rd annual Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza.

Spokeswoman Angie Nelson says the event this Saturday will actually give out over $200,000 in prizes.

Nelson reminds you to wear warm clothes and boots, because no wind breaks or fish houses are allowed.  She describes the day as a fair type atmosphere, with food vendors and fur hat sales.

A few things to bring with you: cash, your driver’s license, and a Minnesota fishing license.

The tournament is billed as the “world’s largest charitable ice fishing contest”.  It’s held on Gull Lake’s Hole in the Day Bay.

Last year’s tournament had to be postponed, due to thin ice.  But officials say there’s no concern about ice thickness this year.
