Children ages 12 and younger are invited to ice fish 11 a.m. to noon for free on Feb. 23 at Roger Nelson’s Pond on County Road A. All fishing gear and some training will be provided by President of the Ellsworth Funsters Paul Johnson and the rest of his group for this fifth annual fishing tournament.
Nearly $2,000 in prizes will be given out which include full fishing gear packages and a boy’s and girl’s bike. Those who catch the smallest fish and the largest fish will be given prizes, with lots of other prizes given in between.
