Ice Fishing Extravaganza

The Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza is the world’s largest charitable ice fishing contest. Founded in 1991 the event has been held annually 10 miles north of Brainerd, Minnesota. The event is primarily an ice fishing contest where the 150 largest fish take home a prize. The prizes are randomly placed throughout the list, so while the biggest fish is the winner’s choice of a pick-up truck, there are also high-value prizes in 50th and 100th place as well. No prize is worth less than $250. There is also a random drawing, an ice fishing contest add-on called catch-of-they day, a Friday night pre-party and more. Since its beginning, this event has donated more than $4-million to more than 50 area charities.
