Pelican Landing’s second-annual “Ice Fishing Extravaganza” was held Feb. 2-3 in Morson.
Forty-five anglers took to the ice fishing for walleye on the Saturday and then lake trout on Sunday. The weather was nice and the fishing was great!
The results were as follows:
•Walleye—1. John Alexander (6.92 pounds) 2. John Gibbons (6.34 pounds) 3. Oliver Gibbons (6.26 pounds)
•Lake trout—1. Jeff Morrison (11.5 pounds) 2. Oliver Gibbons (9.68 pounds)
3. Clarence Gibbons (9.22 pounds)
Oliver Gibbons was proclaimed the overall champion for having the greatest combined weight over the two days (16.02 pounds).
First place in the walleye category was worth $450, with second place worth $300 and third place $150. The cash payout in the trout division was $140 for first place, $90 for second, and $50 for third.
As the overall champ, Gibbons also won a deluxe one-day fish house rental and $100 in cash.
