Hundreds hit the ice for Mad Bobber Ice Fishing Contest

MADISON LAKE, Minn. (KEYC) -People in Madison Lake hit the ice today, for the third annual Mad Bobber Ice Fishing contest.

“We have five different fish categories, there’s five levels of prizes, walleye, northern, bass, pan fish and like a rough fish. There’s lots of fish being caught already and this is our biggest year yet,” said Madison Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Treasurer, Carol Schneider.

Prizes ranged from Eskimo ice shelters to Arctic coolers.
