Now this is a real ice fishing tourney

January 29, 2010 at 03:45 PM

All this talk of Lake Camelot’s ice fishing tournament on Saturday was put into perspective for me a few moments ago as I perused the AP wire.

The annual Camelot tourney is a big deal for us here in central Illinois. Would it even register in North Dakota?

Devil’s Lake fishing tourney will have 5,000 holes

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Organizers of an annual ice fishing tournament on Devils Lake plan to drill 5,000 holes on Six Mile Bay Saturday morning.

City Fire Chief Jim Moe says 13,500 tickets were made available for the department’s 26th annual tournament. He says he expects a huge crowd if it’s not windy.

Moe says more than $170,000 in prizes will be awarded.
