I.C.E. Series Mille Lacs Challenge offers fun and learning for everyone
January 6, 2004 - Garrison, MN
On the heels of a fantastic Lake Winnibigoshish event, the I.C.E. Series turns its attention to the expansive frozen waters of Mille Lacs. Apropos of any true world-class fishery, anglers here often find their challenges met with glorious rewards: Walleyes galore, including unheralded numbers of 24 to 28-inchers; gator-sized northern pike rivaling any water in Minnesota; a increasingly burgeoning population of yellow perch; overlooked ciscoes that provide wonderful sport on panfish tackle; aggressive eelpout that mysteriously disappear in summer; crappies and sunfish of ponderous proportion, veiled in location, yet perhaps not so rare as perceived. Each fish can yield success, for the I.C.E. Series rewards anglers able to score on multiple species. It's also why, at the conclusion of the series, the top angler will be justly dubbed "Ice Fishing World Champion."
As participants gather at Fisher's Resort Saturday, January 24 and Sunday, January 25, fishing, food, fun, piles of great prizes and more promise another delightful ICE Leader's event. Saturday is tournament day, as anglers hit the ice at 8am, returning for a 2pm weigh-in. Top scoring fishermen receive trophies (see www.iceleaders.com for official tournament rules). Meanwhile many participants will also go home with some of the hottest new products on the ice scene. Sponsor prizes include:
· Marcum LX-3 ice system · Otter Den ice shelter
· Eskimo Barracuda power auger · Eskimo Quickflip ice shelter
· Yukon Tracks hats · Thorne Brother's custom ice rod
· LakeMaster lake maps · Custom Jigs and Spins tackle kit
· Stone Legacy's "Unbucket" · Fishing DVD's by FishFever
· Catch-N Tackle lures · Ryan's Racks ATV rack
· Ice Buster Bobbers · Jammin Jigs and more!
In addition to great prize giveaways, industry experts and professional anglers will conduct seminars and product demonstrations right on the ice. A tailgate-style feast fit for any hungry angler caps off Saturday's festivities. On Sunday participants can further their fun and learning by joining guides, sponsors and FishingMinnesota.com Pro Staff for a full day of instructional fishing.
That's the I.C.E. Series: a fishing tournament, a meal, expert hands-on fishing instruction, prizes, new friends, and even a day's guided fishing on a renowned fishery. It's all this and more for about the same cost as bait. So sign up soon. Advanced registration for the event costs a mere $10, and must be done no later than January 17 by visiting the registration page on www.iceleaders.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the event for $15. Advanced registration guarantees a Saturday meal. For lodging information contact Fisher's Resort at (866) 684-2221. Lodging space may fill quickly, so advanced reservations are recommended. For more information about this and other ICE Series events, visit www.iceleaders.com or call Dave Hoggard at (507) 455-0152.
