Saturday, January 28, 2023: 
Fishermen and women showed up for the annual Brainerd Jaycees Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake.

In they went in zero degree weather. but little wind.
The event raises $150,000 for charity each year.

The crowd totaled about 12,000.

People were dressed in costumes of all kinds.

They were there to have fun too.

Yes, they had a great time.

Paula, in the right photo, fished the entire tournament from noon to 3 pm with only one bite and no fish to haul up.

Paula's friend Hunter Lund was happy to catch this fish and go home with a 4-wheeler.

Lots of lucky fishermen and women.

There was an abundance of food too.

There was even a vendor selling fur hats to keep happy customers wam.

The lineup to catch a bus after the event was over.

Quote of the day:   Who would have thought that this many people would turn out in zero degree weather?  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
