This event is generally held the second weekend in June and is a fundraiser for the Crosslake-Ideal Lions Club.
The contest has around 100 fishing teams who participate, making for some fun spectating while the teams return to base to weigh-in their catches for the chance to win prize money, a trophy, and bragging rights.
Thank you to all the volunteers donating their hard work and time to help make this event happen! And a special thanks to Moonlite Bay Restaurant & Bar for hosting this special day.
If you’re a fishing team and have questions about registration of day or event details, contact Donna Leagjeld at 218-820-3717 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
