Believe it or not, right here on Forest Lake MN, people will be coming for many hundreds of miles to fish what is now called the Forest Lake VFW Fishapalooza!
Just a few years ago Dan Luger and his buddy Jim Woods were ice fishing together and talking about the Forest Lake Contest that would be no more. They came up with the idea, litterally over a couple holes in the ice. With a little research and a lot to talking the rebirth of a bigger and better ice fishing contest was born.
Not only is First Place Prize $20,000.00, in the fishing contest, but First Place in the On The Ice Raffle is $10,000.00!
Here's some more details of the event:
WDGY radio will be doing a live broadcast. We can tune to 740am to hear leader board updates.
The Tokyo Broadcasting Station is sending 2 reporters to fish and a crew to film the contest for airing in Japan.
The Sportsman Channel will be filming an episode of Hunt, Fish, Feed and an episode of In-Fisherman TV.
