(Crosby, MN) — The Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce held their annual Ice Fishing Contest over the weekend, but this year went virtual. Through the FishDonkey app, 86 anglers entered 57 fish from public lakes across Minnesota.
Over $4,000 in prizes from several local businesses were awarded to anglers for fish of all sizes during the three-hour contest. The Chamber managed to raise more than $10,500 for marketing for attracting more visitors through the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce.
Top prizes for the four different species of fish included a 29” Northern Pike and 13” Crappie from Levi Jillson of Brainerd, a 17.5” Walleye from Timmy Johnson of East Gull Lake, and an 18” Largemouth Bass from Troy Holcomb of Deerwood.
