BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Organizers of ice fishing tournaments are being reminded that they need to get a permit from the state Game and Fish Department.

Tournament organizers must submit an application along with fishing tournament regulations to the wildlife agency at least 30 days before the start of the event.

Game and Fish staff will ensure the proposed tournament won’t have negative consequences or conflicts with other proposed tournaments.
