BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) - The Crow Wing County sheriff has checked the ice on Gull Lake and has given the green light to the Brainerd Jaycees’ 24th annual ice fishing fundraiser that draws more than 10,000 anglers.

Sheriff Todd Dahl says there’s 17 to 19 inches of ice on Hole in the Day Bay, which is sufficient for the Jan. 25 event.

The volunteer-run Ice Fishing Extravaganza offers more than $150,000 in prizes, including a new Ford or GMC pickup truck, all-terrain vehicles and ice houses.

All proceeds are donated to area nonprofit organizations with the primary beneficiary being the Confidence Learning Center - an outdoor center for people with developmental disabilities.
